Vintage! The Opel Diplomat B

In 1964, Opel introduced its first luxury model since the Second World War, the Diplomat A V8. It became the third member of the exclusive 'KAD' range. KAD stood for the Kapitän, Admiral and Diplomat equipment lines. In 1969, five years after its introduction, the Diplomat A was succeeded by the Diplomat B. The developers had completely re-done the V8 sedan.

Where the A was heavily influenced by American body design, the new luxury model B made a more compact impression, suited to European tastes. Drive it! took a spin in the very last Opel with a V8 engine.
