Irmscher Iberia S.A. (formerly Irmscher Automobilbau GmbH & Co. KG) is a Spanish automobile tuning and manufacturing[2][3] company specialising in Opel and recently Peugeot cars.

It was founded in 1968 in a double garage in the Swabian town of Winnenden near Stuttgart (Germany) by rally driver and mechanic Günther Irmscher, Sr.

Irmscher has retained close links to the Opel company by operating the factory team for Opel in many European and German automobile competitions,[4][5] including the Ascona B i400 rally car, the Vectra touring car, the Astra DTM car and the Omega V8Star Series car. However, in Great Britain the Vauxhall teams are run by Triple 8 because over there, Opel cars are sold under the Vauxhall marque.

This has led them to design and manufacture parts for Chevrolet,[6][7][8] the Cadillac CTS[9] and wheels for the GM based SAAB[10] models, although these are much rarer than the Opel parts. Their distinctive customised parts include alloy wheels, bodykits and exhausts as well as various interior fittings.
