    Ha! Could support the entire weight of a vauxhall nova on that front splitter tubing! Looks outrageously wide too.

    1000HP & ground effect front end must be 220MPH surely - that 600hp housebrick MK2 astra does 196mph!

    Big massive huge difference stepping up from 200 to 210 never mind 220.
    At the end of the day it come down to the gears really, Iíll have plenty power

    Exactly - that and aero. Think about Mclaren F1; that only had 650HP but could reach 243MPH.

    That MK2 Astra is now 900BHP & topping out in 6th on an F28 as I understand it; remarkable for an ecotech!
