668bhp Vauxhall Corsa



So we present you with the 668bhp Vauxhall Corsa, owned and built by Ian. Built to upset the big boys on the drag strip 😉

To look at the Corsa you wouldn’t think that the c20let engine with all the goodies would be able to fit under the bonnet. But Ian managed to squeeze it all and made a really good job of it.

The car has been a build of love and hate. When it’s all going to plan we love this car but as any modified car owner will know, when things go wrong it can make you hate your car.

So check out the spec of the Vauxhall Corsa…
