Customers could also choose from a range of radios and speakers. One of the most eye catching options, featured for the first time on an Opel Rekord, was air conditioning, but for this feature the price was provided only "on application". The tactic continued of stimulating sales at quiet times of year by offering special editions - cars equipped with a package of options and advertised at a lower price than the buyer would face if simply equipping a Rekord with the same options from the standard price list.
Overall the Rekord E1 sold at approximately the same rate as its predecessor and in that respect experienced commercial success. Nevertheless, the automarket in West Germany and the surrounding countries had grown substantially in the s and if somewhat erratically the s. West Germany remained Europe's largest automarket, and here the latest Rekord did not dominate the market for family cars in the way Rekords had done fifteen years earlier.
Back in West Germany, Audi now enjoyed the commitment and financial backing of Volkswagen enabling them in due course to expand production at their Ingolstadt facility in response to demand of the Audi Between and Audi produced , Audi models,  while between and Opel produced , Opel Rekord E1s.
Half a class up from the Rekord BMW , close to bankruptcy in the early s, now had the financial muscle to invest in growing production capacity for their 5 series at their own new plant in Dingolfing. The Opel Rekord retained a powerful position in the market place, but that position was increasingly constrained on several fronts.
By the time the Rekord E1 was replaced, in , by the extensively upgraded Opel Rekord E2, Opel Rekords were losing market share, and the Rekord E2 would be produced at a significantly lower rate than the Rekord E1. However, to cope with Australian conditions it was strengthened substantially and used the Senator's nose like the Opel Commodore to accommodate the Holden straight-six and V8 engines.
In the UK both models were outsold by the Ford Granada. At the back, between the rear light clusters, where the Rekord provided space for the license plate holder, the Carlton was provided with a black panel on which the word "Vauxhall" was spelled out in upper case letters.
Carlton owners were expected to mount their rear license plates slightly lower than on the Rekord, screwed directly onto the bumper. Buyers attracted by the Carlton but looking for a trim and engine combination not featured on the Vauxhall could accordingly choose a car from the Opel Rekord range. From , the facelifted E2 Vauxhall Carltons were distinguishable from Opel Rekords only by their badging, with no sheet metal differences.
The Rekord E1 was sold in South Africa where initially it was branded as the Chevrolet Rekord, with either the four-door sedan or the five-door wagon bodywork.
It was first announced in early July , in standard or GL versions. Import duties in South Africa were prohibitively high, but anticipated volumes did not justify a car plant. The cars were therefore delivered as kits and then assembled at Port Elizabeth. This was the same unit as used in Europe to power diesel Rekords in markets such as Italy with taxation regimes that punished cars with engines of above two litres capacity. In September the Rekord E received a major upgrade. The upgrade might have been held out as marking a new Opel Rekord, but it was not: the manufacturer continued to use the "Rekord E" designation.
However, in other continents where the Rekord was assembled, the Rekord E2 replaced the Rekord E1 later than in Europe. This would continue for the next two generations of Opel Omega which followed. The new car shared the basic chassis components from the E1. The shape of the central portion of the car was unchanged.
But there were several new engines, and the front hood was reshaped to give a smoother profile. The published drag coefficient was reduced from 0. The Opel Rekord D had been seen by many enthusiasts as a good looking car: the styling of the E1 had met with a more mixed reception. Opel now used the extra length at the car's ends to produce a Rekord E2 with more conventionally mainstream proportions than those of the short-nosed E1.
The CD remained. A delivery van version of the Rekord E2 remained in production, but only 8, of these were produced between and as against 30, Rekord E1 based vans produced between and Despite the wheelbase being unchanged, the overhangs had increased, and the Rekord E2, yet again, was a little longer than the car it replaced. In fact it was exactly the same length as the recently upgraded but rather more prestigious BMW 5-series. With the arrival of the E2, the low compression "1.
Featuring a light metal cylinder head and a conventional overhead camshaft this unit presumably had fewer moving parts in the valvegear than the more singular Camshaft in Head CIH unit that had powered Opel Rekords since This 1.
In this configuration the "1. However, at least in the manufacturer's own advertised prices, the "1. As a subsidiary of a corporation headquartered in the US, Opel had more reason than most European automakers to access and understand the increasingly stringent anti-pollution regulations which had effectively enforced the fitting of catalytic converters to cars sold in the US, and now the trend was spreading across the Atlantic.
By the time the Rekord E2 appeared in West Germany had already passed the law that would effectively enforce the use of catalytic converters for cars sold there, though at this stage the industry was still being given time, in West Germany, to prepare for the new laws to come into force: Switzerland and Sweden had already introduced much more stringent standards than other European nations, and catalytic converters began making inroads in the mids.
It was still believed that carburettor fed engines were liable to pass unburnt fuel into the exhaust chamber, with potentially damaging results for the converter, so the manufacturer chose to combine the new anti-pollution device with a potentially more precise fuel injection system. As the designation indicated, this engine came with fuel injection and a catalytic converter. Nevertheless, it was one of the first cars to be offered in West Germany with this level of pollution control.
The "2. In West Germany the "2. The Rekord's largest export market to retain the "2. At the Geneva Motor Show in March , a turbocharged version of the venerable 2. This was Opel's first turbocharged engine. Other mechanic differences were slim, limited to better cooling measures including an oil cooler and other detail measures. The standard transmission package was the manual all-synchromesh four-speed gearbox, controlled using a floor mounted gear change.
There was also the option of a Getrag -manufactured five-speed transmission. Buyers of all but the smallest engined cars could also still specify a three-speed automatic transmission option.
The five-speed had longer gearing than the fourth speed on the first three gears, while fourth remained mostly the same and fifth was an overdrive.
This was then compensated for by a longer final drive for the five-speed, although the 1. At the rear, a live axle retained by a panhard rod was employed with an open differential. Differential bushings were added after E2 production had started. The front stabilizer bar no longer acted as the torque arm ; instead, it was attached to the lower A-arm of the front suspension. Steering was by a steering box and drag links. The brakes received somewhat larger pistons for the front discs drums at the rear , otherwise they remained unchanged.
Approximately 1. In part it was a victim of the success of the company's own Ascona which pushed the Rekord upmarket, but as it moved upmarket it moved ever closer to the prestige models being sold in ever higher volumes.
Although the advertised prices - at least to private buyers - for cars such as the Mercedes-Benz W , the 5 series BMW and the Audi - were considerably higher than those for the Rekord, the gap was smaller than it had been and, increasingly, customers paying for a car this size were willing to pay for the prestige brands.
The higher purchase prices of the upscale brands were also mitigated by a higher value retention. Whereas the first generation of Carlton had been offered with a single engine and a single trim package, the Carlton was available with several of the engines from the Rekord's palette, as well as several of the Rekord's trim options.
General Motors in Europe now followed the logic arising from the end of separately designed Vauxhalls, and after there were no more Opel Rekord badged cars exported to the UK. Snaga motora kW. Status registracije.
