how much does a renault clio 1.2 weigh?

basically a woman tonight managed to beach her car halfway a wall with the front wheels off the floor, dont ask me how but me and my mate tried to assist, he doesnt lift, i do

bless her, the girl thought that he and my mate could lift the front of the car and walk it down the wall
i'll guess the average person can deadlift about 60kg, so we would have a combined deadlift figure of about 190-200kg so even if you could lift cars these days (without the bodywork coming away) we wouldnt have had a chance

the fire brigade sorted her out, but i was just wondering how much the car would weigh (from the bonnet) i guessed half a tonne

    we used to tip our cars and prop them up with a couple of planks to do welding underneath

    just thinking about it again (if you still interested) you need to

    1.) know the total weight of the car and the centre of gravity to determine what reactions are comin down each axle

    2. know the wheelbase of the car and distance of back axle from say rear of car

    3. take moment about the rear wheels to work out the reaction upward (ie you and your mate pulling upwards).


    my bet would be to guess !

    If its the old clio then it weighs about 800kg, Id say at least 3/5 of the weight is over the front end so approx (very rough guess) 480kg so yes just under half a ton. Back end is way way lighter, I can lift the back end of my car, then again it seems to be made of cardboard
    As bencher says though weight distribution over the pivot point, actual weight of the engine block and everything else makes a lot of variables.

    acutally thinking back, when i was at college 16/17 year old living away for from home for first time, me and select chums found an old metro by the side of a dual carriageway, the poor old lad or woman driving it must have run out of fuel, and gone to nearest filling station well we tipped it down into a dyke that was at the side of the road. I'm sure they'd get a shock when they got back to it....

    also again another metro found that had been crashed an parked for safe keeping into a gateway or opening of a footpath of a lane, with police notices on it. We spent a good amount of time, went back for tools, eventually got the engine out and lifted it with rope and a large piece of tree lol into the back of a van and took it back to college, when my mates (all mini enthusiasts) stripped it for parts.

    happy days

    it was a 1.2 i think on a 2001 reg

    so are we saying that i should have been able to lift it and walk with it franco columbo style?

    i didnt think you could grip anything anymore as the body just comes away or cracks (we cracked her front wing trying to push it, it didnt even move)

    Look at Franco deadlifting car in pumping iron, he dragged it, didn't lift it

    Compare yourself to Franco, look at franco's deadlifting records - think its possible?

    i suppose tipping a car wouldnt be too hard - we were going to tip my car the other day to see if we could (2 of us), dont ask

    lifting a car from the backs a piece of pi55, but obviously most of the weights in the front end (engine) - i suppose the fact that it was wedged by the sill didnt help

    poor lass seemed a wee bit embarassed

    we knew the girl who owned it and thought it would be really funny if when she got up for work she came out her door and her car was on its side lol
