We have donated £400 in March.
1972 Nova Widebody (one off) - "an uncompromised Hot Wheels car for the road" (Complete Kit Car Magazine, About this Very Vehicle) - Likely the Most Insane Vehicle on Ebay
This is an example of one of the rarest and most iconic late 1970's British vehicles, the Nova.  Being characterised by a Batmobile-esque electric lifting roof (no doors), the unprecedented and unique space age design and the rocket ship like driving position, the Nova was one of the most iconic, extraordinary and unique driving vehicles of the 1970’s. Today it is also one of the rarest with but a handful left on the road.
This is a one off and unique example with a wide body built to replicate the rear arches of a Bugatti Veyron (6.66 feet wide, 3.33 feet high), huge Lamborghini Countach wheels which measure 15 inches alone, genuine Ferrari 355 Rear Lights, Lotus Esprit Wing Mirrors & RS2000 Mk2 Headlights. Furthermore, it runs a 1800cc Golf GTI engine with custom made rear exhausts. Complete Kit Car Magazine in a feature about this very car described it as "an uncompromised Hot Wheels car for the road. It's Mad!". Basically, its insane, possibly the most insane car online, quite literally.
The previous keeper has owned her for 16 years, he has used her for his commute often and has a collection of similar vehicles. This example was likely initially built in the nineties and there is a HUGE photo folder with build drawings, photographs over the years and invoices dating right back to 1972 with the purchase invoice for the donor vehicle. She was also Magazine Featured in Complete Kit Car Magazine in October 2018 (see pictures) and a copy is included.
Whats She Like to Drive?
Terrifying, truly terrifying, but the previous owner owned her for 16 years and often commuted in her! Imagine being an astronaut in a makeshift space-craft, that roof electronically closes in on you in your tiny cockpit. You're trapped. You're sat back at an angle, basically on the floor and as you blip that peddle the exhausts growl, you fill the entire lane, as you set off you honestly don't know if this journey might be your last. You need to be insane to enjoy it, you need to be mental, I'm just warning you. Amazing fun.
This Vehicle's History
Coming with folders full of documents, this car has a fully documented history from new in 1972. There are tens of thousands of pounds worth of receipts dating back to 1972. The donor vehicle has been restored and restored again, the history folder is insane. You have pictures of the build and all of the concept drawings. You basically have everything.
Her Condition
She starts first time and drives beautifully, this Nova has been in regular use. Being a 1972 she is mot and tax exempt, although theoretically you would need to prove she was built 40 years ago. You could improve upon it. Obvious improvements would include a front windscreen wiper (£100), there is a exhaust blow on idle (£50-100) and her paint isn't designed to be shiny but has been home painted by a roller! She has recently been completely rewired and everything works perfectly, although you have to get used to using the roof as there is a safety feature to avoid being locked out.
Extra Videos
If you would like to see a walkaround video and a video of her engine revving then do please search her registration FNZ 840 on Youtube.


1972 VW Nova (Insanely Rare)

  • We guarantee that your Mini will be mechanically perfect at the time of the sale. Mechanically perfect means that your Mini will be roadworthy with a recent MOT, that everything on your Mini will work correctly and that your Mini will be ready to enjoy.


    However, it is important to note that Mini's are classic cars opposed to brand new cars, classic cars will have wear and tear on all parts opposed to being built to a new standard and accordingly they  will require ongoing maintenance and we cannot be held liable for any ongoing maintenance after the time of the sale. That being said, we have a dedicated phone line to assist you in maintaining your Mini and sourcing replacement parts.
