Opel Olympia


The Opel Olympia was a civilian car used by the German military during World War 2. It first entered production as a two-door car in 1935. In 1937, a more powerful engine was installed, and a four-door variant was introduced.

Production stopped in 1940, as the Opel plant was converted to war production. After the war, in 1947, Opel resumed production of the Olympia.
