Stunning design, possible slight concern about the interior 'fullness', a Cosworth V8. What more can you want?
TVR is back with Cosworth power and Gordon Murray Design | Evo
I want it. But probably not as much as Gaz. I guess he was too busy booking himself 10 billion hours of overtime to buy...
at least alfa owners understand.
when I bought my GT 4 years ago nearly everybody said, oh they go rusty/breakdown etc.
The same reaction I'm getting to the TVR. But it's great
Couple of interesting reads on Pistonheads in the last day or so
Looks like Smolensky is selling/sold to a British party. I would link the stories but it brings up the mobile site
Come back TVR. Love them or hate them, there's always a space for them :cool:
So on sunday i was stuck behind an old duffer in a xsara on a good local road.....I was waiting in third and when i had space booted it past at 5000rpm or more, because i have a great sounding oem box i was thrilled to see at least 10 people at a tvr meet in the local airfield all turn there...
I kind of forgot about this car for the last few years then it happened to jump into my mind this evening. I've had a gander round the web to see what happened to this beast and it's a bit of a sad story really. They seemed so close to producing something truly special here but simply too much...
TVR, I was wondering if you ever posted a pic of a custom carb intake for a Nord anywhere on the Net ( I think it might have been carforums.co.za). I can't find the page now so I'm desperately hoping it's you and that you have one for sale?
Hey all, if anyone is looking for some 100% prime British meat, i have just put my 5l Chimaera for sale in the classifieds.
His name is Wilberforce and after 5 years and 20,000 he still scares the living crap out of me !
Rather gutted actually, but my funds have dried up and i'm getting funny...
Seen this on Pistonheads:
TVR : 4.2 Cerbera - Nebula Dusk
That's ALOT of car for the money, :eek:
360BHP if I remember right, in a car that weighs about a tonne, that comes with electric everything and remote central locking, and full TVRSH... Wow.
0-60 is about 4 seconds or so, 0-100MPH...
Just added this to run along side my GTA, very different cars but they are very similar in some aspects.
She is a 2004 Tvr Cerbera 4.5/4.2 AJP V8, Full black leather, Aps all round, black alcantara headlining etc...Bit hairy in the wet weather but fantastic fun all the same :)
Over the moon...
Right then Team,
Here's a question for you; If you had to run, own and drive either a 1999 Honda S2000 or a 1996 TVR Chimaera 4.0 which would it be?
Both have the same amount of horses; 240BHP
Top Speed wise the TVR takes the S2K by 2MPH by reaching 152MPH.
0-60MPH shows a second difference...
Just been out for a quick blast in the evening sunshine, and came upon a TVR Tuscan (at least I'm pretty sure that's what it was - I've fully lost track of TVRs these days) who'd decided to choose the same twisty bits as me (B4197 from Great Witley to Martley if anyone knows it). Anyway, I hung...
TVR Thunder Run hits London
Be quite an automotive spectacle (not to say sound :eek:) this weekend if anyone can make it.
....if you see a shiny red GT trying to muscle in on the action, that'll be me :D
Good luck to them!!!
Seeing that we have a TVR owner on the forum now made me realise that I haven't seen one on the road for ages - whereas previously at this time of year I used to see a fair few.
Obviously there was the recent news about the factory closing down, but I see from their web-site that there's talk...
Its always nice to ‘discover’ another car that you never knew existed and the Wiesmann car company has managed to keep itself unknown to me at least up to now.
Germany’s answer to TVR the GT and roadster are amazing cars its just I can’t make up my mind which of the two looks better...
