    I have an original Nova Sport being rebuilt in the garage, this is my second Sport, just love the sound of them twin forties! There was supposed to be 500 built for homologation but the numbers only reached approx 417 and the rest were made up with kits for existing cars inc Colin Mcraes old rally car.
    Also had an Irmscher wide arch kit & injection system from an Opel Corsa A Sprint C, but I have now sold the kit.

    A friend of mine has a very rare Irmscher Nova Spider, a factory convertible which they only made 5 of for the UK market!
    This was his old one, a converted German RHD example, the Spiders were a bit prettier than the Hutchinsons as they were built on the 3 door hatch

    that wee spider is now over here in northern ireland, it has corsa alloys and the mk2 nova dash, but apart from that a lovely wee car

    think it belongs to a members dad now.

    btw did he ever get the other spider back? the one that was stolen..

    I think most of those cars listed above will be at Billing.

    (PS - Did you know that they did make a Mk1 Cavalier turbo - but that never made it into production. )
    Now drives : 2002 Astra SRi Turbo in Black
    PREVIOUS ASTRA'S : 1990 GTE 2.0 8v | 1993 1.4 GLS | 1994 1.6 Cesaro | 1995 1.8 16v Sport
