              I still don't like the way the Corsa looks like. Even the VXR bodykit can't change my feelings about that.
              But I think it will have a great carriage and because it's so small it will be easy and fast to drive. The power of 189bhp in such a small car brings fun with it I guess.

              As I saw the Corsa OPC on the Nürburgring Nordschleife I knew: That will be a fast car!

              I'm looking forward to hearing from the first users in here who already have driven the power Corsa.

              When it comes to Germany to our dealer we (my dad an me) will borrow it for a weekend .

                    0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds. (Astra=6,2?)
                    0-100 km/h 7.2 seconds. (Astra=6,4)

                      The VXR will be powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine, producing 189bhp and in excess of 192lb ft of torque, thanks to an overboost facility
                      The result is rather rapid — the 0-60mph dash takes just 6.8sec (0.7sec quicker than the Corsa’s closest rival, the Renaultsport Clio 197) and the VXR will reach 140mph.

                      The Corsa VXR will cost £15,995 when it goes on sale in March.

                        "So erledigt der Corsa OPC den Zwischensprint von 80 bis 120 km/h im fünften Gang in nur 6,7 Sekunden."

                        From 80 to 120 km/h he needs just 0.2 seconds more than the Astra in the same course, the 5th.
