In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the description page in GT5. It is transcluded from here.


  • The Opel Calibra was sold as the Vauxhall Calibra in the UK.

Opel entered the Calibra V6 in the final race of the 1993 DTM season (Deutsch Tourenwagen Masters) at Hockenheim. It earned championship points on its first time out, providing onlookers with an indication as to what was to come.

The Calibra's chassis was developed by the Joest Team, past winners of numerous 24 Hours of Le Mans races. The Cosworth-tuned 2.5-liter turbocharged V6 produced 414 HP, with the power transferred to all four wheels. The 2-door coupe was fitted with wide fenders to accommodate its meaty tires. A large front spoiler and rear wing were also included. Even the unseen underbody was specially molded to take advantage of ground effects.

The car was driven by Manuel Reuter and former Formula 1 World Champion Keke Rosberg. IN 1994, John Winter joined Rosberg and Reuter forming a three-man team. The Calibra had its best year in 1996, when the DTM merged with the ITC (International Touring Car Championship). Tee Calibra received an engine power boost to 493 HP and Reuter won three out of 26 races to claim the Driver's Title. Other Opel members drove well, with a total of five drivers ranking in the top ten. However, at the end of the year Opel decided to withdraw from the ITC, and the series itself ultimately came to an end not long thereafter.
