In 1862, a German entrepreneur Adam Opel founded an industrial company that got his name, which initially occupied a niche for the production of sewing machines.
In addition, in 1870 the production of crews and bicycles under the Opel brand was launched.
By 1936, thanks to the right strategy and major financial injections from General Motors, Opel became the largest automaker in Europe, Adolf Hitler notes, freeing the company from paying taxes.
In 2008, after the general bankruptcy of General Motors, which was saved only by investments from the governments of the United States of America and Canada, the question arises of selling the Opel company to the British division of Vauxhall.
A variety of concerns and companies are applying for the purchase of such a large automaker, including a joint application by Volkswagen and Sberbank of Russia.
However, preliminary agreements were made with the Canadian company Magna, which is assembling cars of all major brands for sale in the United States.
But after the change of leadership of the European branch of General Motors, the Opel company was withdrawn from sale, and the company's engineers received a number of orders to create new cars under the name of the legendary brand.
