I got a video of a 599bhp nova on the rollers.

Anything over 250bhp in either of these cars is stupidly quick stuff

would a nova and a corsa for that matter not eat itself alive with that kind of power?

imagine the amount of drive shafts ud go through

would be some laugh though like ud be laughing at ferrai's with these figures

P.S anyone know the link to get that video?

Beardy - i'm not sure that is the same..... The one on the site lists

Rear: ATS 7,0"/15" wheels and 195/45/15" Toyo Proxes tyres
Front: ATS 7,0"/15" wheels and 195/45/15" Toyo Proxes tyres

but maybe they change em over for a 1/4 run etc?

its isnt a corsa corsa, its a corsa A which is a nova and its the white one thats like 600 brake or something stupid


saw the vids of this and its fooking scary, the engine moves about under the bonnet although i doubt its really driveable, since it would be a bastard to get any traction to get the power down. Although can you imagine having a conversation with someone that owns a Mclaren F1 or a Ferrai

Thats a mental motor but using slicks is kinda cheating, at least i used "E" marked road legal tyres...

No one got a 1/4 mile time for the nova?

Corsa doing 12.1's even if it is turbo'd and on slicks
