    The saying is : 'You can't polish a turd."

    Well, someone has put the lie to that, with an extreme amount of effort and cash.

    Still a turd though.

    Nicely modified, but a bit steep and I'm not sure who the target buyer would be. Kids love Novas, but they're not gonna spend £25k on one.

    Your right that is a lot of cash for essentially a Vauxhall Nova and i certainly wouldnt pay that for it.

    But having tinkered with Vauxhalls in the past and doing a few Turbo conversions on Novas and Astras that is one very impressive spec and not to be sniffed at.

    400 and something BHP? to the front wheels? Cant se it being that fast and im sorry to say it as i am a speed freak but i will always need a bit of class hence the audi. A nova is a vehicle designed for grannys to go shopping in. Still the guy who did it must be quite proud, suprised he is selling as wont get much for it.

    I think it's just a cheap way to advertise their company, Racetech, I doubt they expect to sell what can only be a specially prepared demo car.

    I had a 300 bhp astra gsi turbo and that was fast,so that nova will be fast.

    I should of known better....

    When I read the title "Expensive Nova", I instantly thought it was going to be a mid 1960's Chevy Nova II.
