Welcome to the OMOF

UK Home of the Opel Manta.

The [OMOF] is a discussion forum for Opel Manta enthusiasts in the UK, but we welcome Opel fans from around the World. I hope you enjoy the site.

Here you can see how many Opel Manta currently left in the UK are taxed on the road, or SORNED and off the road. SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) fully came into use in year end 2007 as a way of recording and declaring that a car was not being used on UK roads.

 

It is believed that in total [Worldwide] 678,857 Opel Mantas were manufactured between 1970-1988. Of which 498,553 were Manta 'A' and 180,304 were Manta 'B'. It's unknown how many of each model were sold in the UK.

 

These statistics include all Opel Manta models as noted on the driver and vehicle licensing website which are:
MANTA, MANTA 1600, MANTA 1600 AUTO, MANTA 1900, MANTA 1900 AUTO, MANTA BERLINETTA, MANTA BERLINETTA AUTO, MANTA DL, MANTA DL AUTO, MANTA EXEC, MANTA EXEC AUTO, MANTA GT, MANTA GT AUTO, MANTA GT/J, MANTA GT/J AUTO, MANTA GTE, MANTA GTE AUTO, MANTA L, MANTA RALLYE, MANTA SR, MANTA SRB SH, MANTA SRB SH AUTO

 

Information does not include Northern Ireland until 2014 Q4. Statistics will be inaccurate in places due to changeovers of Tax/Sorn, Unlicensed illegal vehicles and general discrepancies.
