Crazy Corsa Smashes 'Ring Record

Earns a bit of respect in the process

That looks like fun...

Praise be to the crazy goons at Opel, who’ve been hooning around the ‘ring in the new Corsa OPC (VXR to us, mind) and have become record breakers.

The pint-sized manic mini broke the record for superminis around the famous track by lapping it in a (slightly scary) 8mins 47.99seconds.

The 192bhp hatch was piloted by Manuel Reuter, an ex-Opel works driver.

Is it us, or has that given the Corsa a little more credibility?
