    car may be going for somthing more intresting

    i have sorted a deal over the net for a px with my car for a cerebra, i have seen many pictures and the car has fsh and seems like a nice example. im am travling to see it on sunday and will know more then.
    the tvr is a 4.2 with 360bhp with 0 to 60 in 4.2 and a top end of around 175mph
    it also has 4 seats so its a proper family car. well, if your kids are really small it is.

    Wow very nice. I have been in one there very very fast rear wheel drive monsters, just one thing they are not the most reliable cars my friend has had a lot of problems with his, the garage where he takes it said some of them have reliability problems, unless you find a real good one. Post some pics when you can, look forward to seeing it.

    Speed six or V8? Lovely car, amazing noise. Good luck getting spare parts. I looked at the possibility of one but apparently is near on impossible to get engine parts.

    All this talk of people swapping cars is making me jealous, the Cerbera is another car on my wish list, but with rising fuel cost I just cant justify it. It is a good way of sticking two fingers up at the government, get a pre 2001 model and you get the cheaper road tax despite having a dirty great V8 kicking out loads of carbon dioxide emisions.

    Love the interiors on those things. How you they fair these days? I've worked on a few TVRs and the trim would fall apart often on the older models.

    evo did a write up on one of the TVR`s and made it sound a good investment but then a owner wrote in stating they are a mare to keep running and a proper enthusiasts car.

    its the 4.2 v8 apj engine, as for the interiors they seem to wear well for a tvr. i have looked at the griffith 5.0 and they dont seem to wear so well.
    ill know more on sunday when i see it, i think its a case of going with your head and not your hart when veiwing.

    LOL...I read that article as well and came away thinking the opposite. Interiors that fall apart and smell of glue fumes, engines that are unreliable on early cars but better on later ones (note Better!) Serviciing costs that were astranomical...

    But yer I agree the following month the chap the wrote in did say it was a mare!

    A cerbera a "proper family car...!>!>">""

    Is that how you are selling it on the missus!! LOL

    Where can I get a ticket to your planet fella, it sounds like a really cool place!!! hahahaa


    They are a total riot, but an absolute money pit too. Forget any idea of using it as a daily, even as a weekend car, you spend more time faffing about wiht them than driving them!
    But they are huge fun and very British too, so good luck to ya! Get a cheap polo with a good towing eye also!! !

    i did neglect to mention how fast they go

    Good luck but take heed of shy as a Griffin came off the road I use and the driver couldn't get his daughter out of the burning mess...not the safest car
