Hey there, thanks for writing in about your 2001 Corsa. Check the body to subframe mounting bolts for mounting rubber cracks, missing bolts, or bolts that are loose. You should also check the motor and transmission mounts to see if they are broken letting the engine move when you accelerate. Before moving forward with further repairs, I recommend having a local expert inspect the clunking symptom in person to pinpoint the problem firsthand.
