in 1982 a friend of mine in the army used to go out with the daughter of the "schriber kitchen " manufacturer
and he told me that the father had opel make him a 2.8 straght 6 with a 5speed he said it had the rear axil changed but didm]nt know to what
he was disapointed with the performance of mine as it was only a 1.9
i suppose it pays to have money and to have been in the same party years ago

Before that comment gets discarded as fantasy, does anyone know what drivetrains Opel had in the Opel GT2 showcar (shown below as the last car in the upper row, based on the Manta/Ascona platform)? An article I read said that it had a 1.9 CIH with L-Jetronic EFI and a ZF 5-speed, but perhaps Opel had tried different drivetrains? Did Opel ever have a V-6 around that era?
