Opel has announced the 750,000th Insignia has rolled off the assembly line in Rüsselsheim.

The 750,000th car was a range-topping Insignia OPC Sports Tourer which features an Arden Blue exterior and a turbocharged 2.8-liter V6 engine that develops 325 PS (239 kW) and 435 Nm (321 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the powerful engine and an all-wheel drive system, the wagon accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 6.3 seconds before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

In a statement, plant manager Axel Scheiben said “This is a special day for the entire team. We have every reason to be proud of the fact that we have already produced our successful Insignia model 750,000 times." He added, "Our team does an outstanding job day in, day out, manufacturing highly complex vehicles in top quality."

Besides announcing the production of the 750,000th Insignia, Opel confirmed an "additional Insignia variant" will be produced in Rüsselsheim later this decade. The company declined to elaborate but confirmed the mysterious variant will be sold in the United States as a Buick.
