RACING GREEN TVR | TVR Cerbera V8

TVR Cerbera V8 The TVR Cerbera was manufactured by TVR between 1996 and 2006 and the 4.5 litre V8 Cerbera was in effect the flagship sports car for the TVR range during this period. Named after the mythical Greek monster with 3 heads that guarded Hades, the Cerberus, this car was the most powerful TVR produced under Peter Wheeler’s reign at Blackpool. First shown to the public in 1994 at the Birmingham Motor Show the TVR Cerbera was an instant success with the crowds and represented a change of direction for TVR. It was the first 2+2 fixed from the TVR stable and was also the first TVR to be powered by an in house TVR designed and created engine. Prior to the TVR Cerbera all TVRs ...

Talk:TVR Sagaris – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Talk:TVR Sagaris I think that the first paragraph could be improved somewhat to reflect the high standards of Wikipedia. Contents EU guidelines [ edit ] I deleted part of the para on EU guidelines. Whoever wrote the sentence clearly doesn’t understand that the guidelines are for road/passenger safety and not track performance (duh). If you can provide evidence that the absence of driver aids renders the car safer in simulated accidents and crash tests then fine, otherwise let’s not comment on how a TVR can outperform other cars at Brands Hatch without the need for airbags. — 195.92.40.49 17:18, 27 February 2007 (UTC) EVO Magazine [ edit ] For reference to the designers ...

Ride Drive > Classic Cars > History of TVR Cars

The TVR Cerbera In November 1994, with sales of the TVR Griffith and the TVR Chimaera doing well, the sports car manufacturer added a third car to the range, the TVR Cerbera. This car represented a landmark in TVR production as it was the first in the history of TVR sports cars to be powered by an engine not bought in from another car manufacturer. About the Engine This was the AJP8, a light weight V8 unit designed by Al Melling’s company, Melling Consultancy Design (MCD), and specifically for TVR. This engine was unique in that its kgs⁄bhp rating was of a class only seen is topend motorsport contests. The crank case was also so strong it was capable of being used as a stressed ...

TVR typhon

Thema: TVR typhon TVR typhon typhon gets more power than expected. TVR has finally revealed the price and specification of its sophisticated new flagship, the Typhon. Originally slated to produce 500bhp, TVR has found that the supercharged version of its superb straight-six engine is actually well within tolerances producing a massive 580bhp at 7000rpm. The torque figure of 467lb ft at 5000rpm is equally impressive. The Typhon will cost Ј84,995 when deliveries beginning this summer, and TVR claims there’s already a two-year waiting list for the car. TVR is also offering two normally-aspirated versions of the car; the T400R fitted with the 400bhp 4-litre straight-six, and the T440R ...

Drivers Anonymous – 1995 TVR Chimaera 400HC review

1995 TVR Chimaera 400HC Sep 2010 – First Report (51,700 miles) Click Photos To Enlarge Turn the key to activate the ignition, pause a second until the whine of the fuel pump stops, signifying that it’s primed and ready for action. Turn the key a little further and the starter churns – faster and higher pitched then my usual car. Almost immediately the already-warmed engine springs to life, high octane unleaded feeding the 8 hungry cylinders. The revs rise initially then settle to an even burble just under 1,000rpm. Blip the throttle pedal, impossible to resist, and I’m rewarded with a snarling bellow, so characteristic of a TVR V8. Blip it a couple more times just ...

TVR Cerbera 4.5 | Sports Cars

The Cerbera is a brutish, leery British muscle car, and TVR at its best. It’s not a refined and dainty sports car suitable for those new to RWD vehicles. There are no electronic aids to stop you getting into trouble, and the sensitive steering takes some getting used to. Not that the steering is bad, it’s just different to what you might initially expect. Like many low volume UK manufactured sports cars, the TVR Cerbera isn’t going to win any awards for reliability, and the temperamental electronics are just one of the weak spots. The clutches also have a disturbing habit of grenading themselves prematurely. The engines (both the V8’s and the V6), if properly maintained ...

What gearhead could want anything more–a potent Ford 289 Hi-Po in a luscious 1,800-pound fiberglass body, with a just small enough wheelbase to cause even the least faithful to pray aloud in tight turns. It’s the TVR Griffith, and it’s not for the faint of heart when pushed to its limits. Mike Mooney knows that only too well. #8220;Of the 262 built, I drove about 255 of them.

A Brief History Of TVR The history of TVR is a long one, founded in 1946 the firm was initially named Trevcar Motors, upon joint ownership in 1947 the name was changed to TVR. Trevor Wilkinson founded the car firm and 3 years after buying the workshop and founding the company, TVR built it’s first original chassis. The TVR Number 1 didn’t get off to a great start,  a designer called Les Dale was hired to create the bodywork for the car and decided to take it for a spin, he crashed the car and the chassis then had to be repaired before being fitted with aluminium body panels. The car was tuned to 35 BHP, painted British Racing Green and sold to Wilkinson’s cousin for £325. Not long ...
