World First:TVR Sagaris LHD!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaah, IT has arrived, the first Sagaris LEFT HOOKER has arrived in the Netherlands. OMG! 400BHP/420Nm and only 1078kgs(2360?lbs?):rocks:
I love the colour(our national shirt colour at the FIFA World Cup)



113500 euros is a lot of money though

I have a soft spot for the Sagaris too. I never liked a TVR this much before, but lightweight + no traction control/ABS + big straight-six + minimalism interior = :rocks:

I got to drive a yellow one (TVR France's showroom car) a few months back, it was freaking amazing. It's got that badass attitude that 911s and M3s could only dream of. The TVR made Speed Six engine is proper British Engineering at its best. Forget BMW's S54, the Speed Six is the masterpiece of the inline-6 configuration. Nothing beats the sound and feel of a big, natrually aspirated and highly tuned (100bhp/L, 8000rpm) straight-six with individual throttle bodies.

I will take one in Jag F1 Green. Bring TVRs back to the US!

Aren't they Russian now? Or did the company get moved around again.

Send me one of those Netherland World Cup T-shirts.

TVR is owned by a Russian the same way Lotus is owned by a Malaysian company. TVR is currently relocating within the UK.

His name is Smolenski(26 years old) and he bought the stuff from Peter Wheeler. They want to shut down the Blackpool manufactory to go somewhere else(dunno where) in the UK....The problem with TVR is: their engines arent "environmentally correct" yet for i.e the USA so sales dropped...

David, I do not yet have our National Shirt. Sorry mate
