Opel Manta 400 1982 – SPRZEDANY

Opel Manta 400 to bezdyskusyjnie jeden z najwspanialszych niemieckich samochodów rajdowych w historii. Zbudowana w oparciu o Asconę 400 (na której Walter Rohrl zdobył tytuł Rajdowego Mistrza Świata), otrzymała przygotowany przez Coswortha silnik, któego seryjne 144 KM przy rajdowych ustawieniach niemal podwajano. Przepisy homologacyjne nakazywały budowę co najmniej 200 egzemplarzy – Manta 400 powstała w 245 sztukach, a licytowany egzemplarz jest jeszcze bardziej unikatowy – to jedna z 59 sztuk, które otrzymały fabryczny pakiet poszerzeń oraz zestaw szerokich tylnych Felg Ronal, które obuto w opony o imponującej szerokości 285 mm. Jego nabywca zapłaci za niego ok. 298 tys. PLN (razem z prowizją domu aukcyjnego).

Opel Manta 400 broad-built version
The Manta 400 was introduced in March 1981 at the Geneva Motor Show: It was the successor of the successful rally vehicle Ascona 400, in which Walter Röhrl becam Drivers' World Champion in 1982. The Manta 400 was actually a pure race car, but it had to be offered in small quantities for the regular market due to motor sporting regulations of group B at that time.

The Manta 400 was powered by a 2.4-liter engine with light alloy cylinder head, four valves per cylinder and double overhead camshafts that Opel developed with the support by Cosworth. The 960 kg light rally car contributed standard 144 hp, depending on the configuration, it could also be up to 275 hp. Disc brakes on all wheels (front ventilated) and limited slip differential was included. The Manta 400 was built until 1984.

245 copies were built. The buyer could select between the so-called ‘narrow’ body or the rally broad-built version with GRP fenders to the front carriage and fender flares also made of GRP to the rear wheel arches (below 100 in the broad version, one talks of 59 pieces by the factory). The broad-built version also involved a change of tires on the rear axle up to a size 285 tire on a Ronal 15″rim, on the front axle a size 225 tire was installed. The mixed tires and the flared fenders were making the car look very brawny and martial.
