The Opels sold their eponymous car company to General Motors in 1929/31. They only produced cars for 30 years, but remain one of the most prominent and wealthiest families in Germany to this day.
Their Saint-Tropez retreat was built in 1956, they kept it for about 40 years. Brigitte Bardot lived here in the late 60s with her third husband, Opel heir Gunter Sachs.
