The Opel Calibra, also known as the Vauxhall Calibra in the United Kingdom, the Chevrolet Calibra in South America, and the Holden Calibra in Australia and New Zealand is a sports car engineered and produced by German automaker Opel between 1989 and 1997. The Calibra was introduced to counter the Japanese sports coupes of the late-1980s and early-1990s, and is based around the running gear of the first-generation Opel Vectra, which had been launched in 1988. Calibra production was based in the Opel factory in Ruesselsheim, Germany and the Valmet Automotive factory in Uusikaupunki, Finland[2], where production was consolidated in November 1995.[3]

The Opel Calibra was styled by the US head of Opel design Europe, Wayne Cherry. As a front-wheel drive coupe based on the Vectra chassis, its ride and handling are not significantly better than that of the large family car from which it grew. On its launch in 1989, the Calibra was the most aerodynamic production car in the world. This was glorified in an advert on British television during 1990.
