RE: is 67 hp good enough

The 230E? Something around 110 - 115 mph. The car will start to really press at those speeds, and that's what keeps it from going any faster.

I'd imagine it would take quite some time getting up there past 90 mph.

67 horsepower is more like something you would get out of a SJ410 Suzuki Jeep.
hehe I wish!
the SJ410 only makes 45hp[8)][:(]

the top speed of the 230E is idd 115mph.

RE: is 67 hp good enough

67 is... relaxed. I guess you might have a 240 which someone has put a 230E boot-lid on; if you are allowed to start it up, tell us whether it has a glow-plug light in the dash or not. Glow-plug = deisel = 67hp. No glow-plug = petrol = 136hp.

If you are putting this car together so you can learn to drive, then PLEASE fix things in this order:

- tyres

- brakes

- engine

Even a 67bhp car, going downhill, can go quite fast enough to wreck nasty old perished tyres, and cheap cars often have "difficult" maintenance by people with not much money. I have a half share in a Citroen H Van (see, though there's not many pix there now), and while it doesn't even have 67hp, it does weigh a ton and a half (and carries a lot more) so we pay far more attention to the brakes than the engine!

London, right in the middle
03 CL500 (Black/Grey, 48k, Comand, 7GTronic, Keyless Go) 302 Bhp
01 E430 (Silver/Black, 112k, Comand, Lingua, 7 seats, tow...) 275 Bhp
97 SLK (40k, Yellowstone, partner's car!) 200 Bhp
03 A210 AMG (Black/Black, 63k, project rescue car) 140 Bhp

...I make that 917 Bhp...!
