Somehow i never felt that i could take my WagonR beyond 80kmph in fourth gear.......... maximum i have done on delhi roads is 100kmph in Fifth gear.... but never been able to take it beyond 80kmph in fourth..... in fact, the acceleration seems to be better in fifth.... (much like hyundai Getz)...

yup 150 is.. a bit.. too much... though if you have good tyres.. you can do that.

but.. wagon R can do 160+ on the Speedo.. thats for sure.

LOL.. I do 100 in 4th.. regularly.... no issues at all.
and... have easily managed 137km/h on the Speedo with 4 people and full luggage. WITHOUT wobble. (that was 5th gear)

And... if my 800 can manage 150 on the speedo .. wagonR can also!!... LOL

I take this topic... as a compliment to WagonR rather than one to Corsa!

That was the point of the whole topic. It was shocking to see the wagon r go so fast. But even though I had 5 ppl in the car with luggage i managed to do 180. So I aint putting down either cars..

In a straight line (until 100-130kmph) probably.

On a circuit, no chance.

If the Wagon R ever comes out with a 1.6. The only catch line they can use is.

"Wagon R - POWER............without CONTROL". LOL

We seem to have too many fantasies these days, such as what if .....? For that matter, one can even fit Formula One engine on WagonR and that should give S-Class a run for its money Question remains whether a car can sustain that engine.

I would personally avoid modifying tall and narrow cars like that..........
And anyway, they don't look sporty even after modification.

Freaky? but they have put in some work to made it look better.. I mean common it looks better than the stock wagon r? The yellow one is the clarion car. it has a loaded boot with wooofers, amps and theworks...

Why should not a WagonR do a 180? I hv consistently done 140 in the 800cc Matiz. In fact, it even touches 160 at a spot just after the tunnel towards the Pune end on the expressway, where I guess there is a slight descent.

On a flat surface, a stock Wagon R cannot cross 155 kmph true speed. That 160 you did was on the speedo, now god only knows what speedo error the Matiz has.

Don't believe anything until your car is fitted with a GPS testing device.

True.....
& ya.. Matiz is a famous car for its speedo error..... its 12 (error)..... when the speedo shows 120.
so its safe to assume when speedo is 145+ ... its 15+ or maybe 20!!!

The Matiz has a top speed of 138-142 kmph (true). Speedo Error is quite high. At 100 kmph, it apparently clocks a true 91 kmph while at 120 it is a 108.1 . The 160 you talked about Minardi is the car touching a speed of 140-142 in reality.
