TVR Typhon

Sort of SuperTuscan. One of the last models built before the demise, powered by either a 4.0 Speed 6 with 400bhp, 4.2 with 440bhp or a supercharged 4.2 with 585bhp. Sadly there are only two road legal examples in existence

Not sure if it's cool but I like it a lot. Nothing like a fibreglass deathtrap.

That's how TVR did the styling, make a normal shaped car out of clay and then slash at it with an axe and hit it with a hammer

There is also the possibly apocryphal story of Wheeler's dog taking a chunk out of a styling buck which because a fog light aperture.

Why'd you have to tell me that? I could have voted it sub zero.

As much as I like TVRs (and this one is rather a nice one), they are all unfortunately pretty much rather uncool.
Just coz I like a car, don't make it cool.
Same goes for cars I dislike....doesn't automatically make them uncool. Which is why I voted some of the French rubbish SIF has posted recently as cool.

You are wrong though, TVRs are automatically cool regardless of what you (or anyone) thinks of them
