Opel Kadett Superboss vs. BMW 325iS with Chris Harris

British journalist and YouTube sensation Chris Harris drive and discuss the legendary locally-developed Opel Kadettt 2,0 GSI 16V S, aka "The Superboss" and its rival, BMW's 325iS, both of which captured the imaginations of aficionados and fans of Group N circuit racing in the early Nineties. They drive the racing versions of both cars and the video includes NEVER SEEN BEFORE AMATEUR FOOTAGE of a pitlane disagreement between BMW and Opel protagonists, the late Tony Viana and Mike Briggs, from the period. Then Chris and Deon take two well-kept examples of the limited-edition Superboss and 325iS to a twisty road to see how they compare with modern hot hatches and sporty coupes.

They drive a car from Sweden to the UK to avoid the snow. And it snows in the UK. We got to play in it though, and that cool air probably made it good for at least 508hp. It's a small-volume concept for now, but we had a C63 on display to add some perspective (actually, just because it was hilarious in the snow)

Tony Viana lead the BMW attack in the 2.7 litre BMW 325iS Evolution II, while Mike Briggs headed up the Opel attack in the 2 litre Opel Kadett 16V Superboss. As usual the battle between them saw each driver extracting the absolute maximum from themselves and their cars.
