it doesn't help that no one seems to have a correct weight for a Corsa B but mine based on 1020kg is.....

Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 181
Weight without Driver (KG) : 1020
Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 180.30
0 - 60 (Secs) : 6.18
0 - 100 (Secs) : 15.85
60 - 100 (Secs) : 9.68
Quarter Mile (Secs) : 14.60
Terminal Speed (MPH) : 95.94
Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 14.40
Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 97.65

Which is pretty much spot on give or take a couple of hundreths of a second
