Weren't they making a car that was supposed to have around 1300hp? lol.

posted by  chris_knows

it was 800bhp and it was too powerful to take on a public road because it would spin all the way through the gears until 6th (apparently) thats if you and me are thinking of the same car, either that, or youre getting confused with TKR!

That's the one lol. It was TKR :oops:

posted by  chris_knows

well, TKR are staying where they are! is it me or is Britains motor industry diminishing??? we still have Caterham, NOBLE, TKR and small, back shed car companies because TVR were the pride of Blackpool!!!

Holy shit, thats sex on wheels, screw the TKR, looks like another radical supercar, that TVR on the other hand looks like a Viper meets Enzo, with those power and looks, damn what I would give just to drive one once.... god knows I'd prolly kill myslef in it.

Anyway, whats your favourite TVR??? anyone?
mine would be the Cerbera 4.5 Speed Eight i have in my sig below! great car, great sound to. Big British V8

Land rover belongs to ford too...lol


And the good thing about tvrs is they are relatively affordable...generally range from like 100,000-120,000 dollars (converted from english currency), unlike most other super cars.

I'd kill to get one of these, though

i know Land Rover is Ford too, what i meant is the design is british, the engineering is british too and it was designed for the british (mostly)!
and that is the only sort of Pagani id have, the soft top/removable roof (what would you call it? the one with no roof???) but it would be useless here, speed bumps that dont run the length of the road but raise from the middle! country roads that arnt as wide as that is!
