The Opel Super 6 is an executive car built by the German car manufacturer Opel between 1937 and 1938. The car was equipped with a 2,5 litre straight-6 with a top speed of 115 km/h (71 mph). It was available in three different versions, a 4-door sedan, a 2-door coupé and a 2-door cabriolet.

An interesting detail was the windscreen wiper drive which received its power via a mechanical linkage from the camshaft, a solution which Opel continued to use in post-World War II Rekord models until 1957.
