Chronology

The Daewoo Prince is a mid-size luxury car that was produced by Daewoo in South Korea between 1991 and 1997. The car was based on the rear-wheel drive Opel Rekord E, although the body was of Daewoo design, as opposed to the Opel-designed, Holden-manurfactured body of the Prince's Royale predecessor. The Prince was powered by 1.8 and 2.0 litre Opel Family II four-cylinder engines.[1] The Prince spawned two additional variants, the Daewoo Brougham and the Daewoo Super Salon, all three replaced by the Daewoo Chairman in 1997.
