mine's a corsa b (s reg, 98) sxi, standard engine.
i got 110mph out of it on the M5 the other week.
quite impressed as i didn't think they would do over 105.

Mine pulls to 95mph. Will do 110 down hill. Altho the tyres are a bit flat and I'm a pie, got a sound system in the boot too. Don't really care cos i drive it at 70 anyway

About 80 mph, but then again I don't deem ragging a 1.2 worth it

The 1.2 16v engine has come a long way since it was first introduced in the Corsa.

Corsa B = 65bhp
Corsa C = 75bhp, 80bhp for the twin port version

98' 1.2 8v, had 90 on a long stretch of flat with 14"s on, 100 downhill.

Now with 16"s and a sub etc, can manage 95 downhill and about 83 on the flat lol
