I read on an earlier thread that the Astra turbo would murder a CTR. Dream on chaps, I've driven both, seen the figures for both and no which one my money would be on. The Astra is an ordinary car with minor tweaks and a blower attached whereas the CTR is built for the job from running gear to engine. Like I said, dream on.
Even if it were close, the Astra needs a blower to even compete. Normally aspirated 2.0 Litre V-tec (100 BHP per tonne). Nastra, hmmmm turbo'd and less output :roll:
Max speed - 144 MPH, 0-100 MPH 18.3, 0-60 7.2 - Astra Turbo
Max speed - 146 MPH, 0-100 MPH 16.2, 0-60 6.7 seconds - CTR
Hmmmmm again :roll:
