Sounds like the esi. This car has 125bhp sohc vtec. does 0-60 in 8.9 seconds. Mpg? 30's depends on how you drive but the vtec is there to help control mpg when you want economical driving. Its a 1.6 so your looking at £185?

im sure it can do more than 123mph, i had a i.4 astra mk4 i toped 134, if you dont belive me check it on youtube, type in astra 134mph and check my name k sindhu, i would have thought it would have been able to do about 135- 145 max

I'm not saying you can't mate. That's just the official stats. Of course you can go over it.

And I assume you're talking about this video:

this is intresting :

A car cruising on a highway at 50 mph (80 km/h) may require only 10 horsepower (7.5 kW) to overcome air drag, but that same car at 100 mph (160 km/h) requires 80 hp (60 kW). With a doubling of speed the drag (force) quadruples per the formula. Exerting four times the force over a fixed distance produces four times as much work. At twice the speed the work (resulting in displacement over a fixed distance) is done twice as fast. Since power is the rate of doing work, four times the work done in half the time requires eight times the power.

at 135 indicated on my clocks gps says 130. at 74 indicated on clocks gps says 68. in my dads 2001 civic the clocks are 5mph out comparing to gps speed. some are more accurate than others. gps speed is still more than the measurable speed by lasers/radar
