Lillibeth Alo 5000 0 2 100 I recently bought my 'Nova' (Eureka) from a friend who had shipped it from Australia. The Car was compleat when I bought it and to my knowledge is the only Eureka in the U.K.. It is fully badged as a Eureka and is in as new condition having been stored in a Museum since it was built. The engine is a Porsche 911 air cooled unit which is fully custom dressed, chrome components and polished alloy. It has a stainless custom eight tailpipe exhaust which is very loud. The interior has a photo sensitive dash which means the dash is black until the ignition is switched on and then it lights up like a Christmas tree. Seats are electric Recaros and the trim is cream leather with deep pile brown carpet. I have had fitted a DVD player with reverse camera since buying the car. The body is unique having been highly modified. It has a lift out roof panel which can also be electricaly opperated to make it tilt open, a glass window replacing the rear louvre, a front and rear spoiler, and Ferrari Testarossa style side air intakes. It also has air intakes for oil coolers built into the roof area above the original rear window. The canopy roof section is electric and opens and closes very quickly. The museum had had the car sprayed bright metal flake yellow at some time because it was originally white. The car is a crowd puller where ever it goes and is a dream to drive. Acceleration is very good and I have surprised the odd boy racer at the traffic lights. I don't know what the top speed is because I have never been over 70 in it.
William Dickinson 14000 0 9 150 I was unhappy with the finish of the body (a Mark 3) when I took delivery from the Nova factory, poor panel fit and rough edges, but these problems were sorted with a little work. The cars chassis and engine were supplied by Balena Car and Custom and was a fully finished item done to a very high standard. All that I had to do for the build was to fit the body and components such as the fuel tank, dashboard and instruments, seats, heater, wiring, lights, carpets, pantograph wiper system, etc. The engine was a highly tuned Rover 3.5 V8 fitted to the VW gearbox via a UVA adaptor plate. The suspension had been lowered by Balena and the gear lever had been moved back by 6 1nches. The car was built to a very high standard and featured genuine Ferrari Testarossa door mirrors and round Ferrari rear lights. The engine could be started via remote control and the canopy roof was voice activated via remote control or via on board sensors. Front wheels were 14 inch with Goodyear Eagle NCT 205x14 tyres while the rear wheels were 15 inch with Goodyear Eagle NCT 235x15 tyres. The engine was fitted with a Holley carb, Offenhauser manifold, oil coolers and remote electric water pump. The cars top speed was in excess of 170mph. I was very pleased with the car and its very exotic looks and after the car had been sold to a japanese guy who exported it to Japan I bought a second Nova (a fully built Mark 1) which I fully rebuilt and modified to make it look like a Lamborghini Countach. Sadly this car was stolen and was never recovered.
