Only problem is, you can only buy them if living in Europe, Russia and Japan.
I am actually surprised that they are not for sale in USA to be honest
It runs around the same price as a RS4.

And I think I am in
You surely a fan! TVR does not comply with Euro 4 standard. Import to HK was banned some years ago. Even before that, only few immigrants with special privilege can bring them in HK from the UK e.g. British pilots. And that is why, only 8 or 10 backdated TVR models in HK. As being an amateur passenger, at high speed sharp bend, though the G-force was as strong as like on a roller-coaster but it was still like the car is on rails! TVR interior is more luxury than the Lotus, it has high quality strong leather all around, beautiful body paint. 300+hp for 1060kg body...it will beat 430 and 997TT and only the LP640 and 599 have a chance. Now, here we only find Lotus Exige as the most pure we can get but exhaust sound is nothing as grand as the TVR.
