Thread: Fully built Nova weight?

    Fully built Nova weight?

    Has anyone weighed their Nova? Ideally a 1600cc VW build with automatic hood lift. Nothing fancy, just a typical fully built Nova, oil, a bit of petrol, battery, etc. I am wondering how heavy they are for towing purposes.

    Some discussion about weights here:-

    OK. So from that thread, 790KG for a 1200 Nova with a full tank. (Dango's car in Austria when he got it.) Probably another 10 KG for a 1600cc?, so I will assume a round 800kg.

    That's the figure that my MOT guy always dials into his brake testing rig - I think that it would be difficult to get over 850kg without going overboard on heavy extras....
    It's a 52 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!
