After first race experiences with Opel Manta A, GT and Kadett C German Opel dealer Günter Knippschild decided to realize his dream of a widebody Group 5 Opel Kadett C Coupe for the German Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft Championship of 1981. With body parts from Zakspeed he converted the 2 litre coupe into a unique race version.

Due to teething problems of the engine he could not start in the race of the debut round at Zolder and it took several more attempts to get the new car running. When the Championship returned to Zolder in August of 1981 Knippschild finished 12th in division 2. After that race the spectacular Opel singleton disappeared from racing forever.
