TVR Sagaris


Intro: When performance follows passion

TVR#44; three letters that resonate race car#44; British pocket rocket#44; classic English craftsmanship. a boutique constructor with a mega reputation. today#44; TVR is stepping into the spotlight. discreetly introduced at the 2003 Birmingham show#44; it already had the tag of a Ferrari beater#44; and now it finally steps into the starting blocks#44; ready to turn heads. this the Sagaris. Recently purchased by a wealthy Russian#44; TVR continues to build passionate sports cars#44; with all the allure of a prototype that look like no other.

Esthetique: Almost scary

The Sagaris is exactly that. it is pure thoroughbred#44; intriguing and most definitely surprising. A mix of rounded angles. its front end speaks volumes of aggressiveness while the back end is more subtle#44; rounder and yet it is explicit #58; lateral muffler pipes at the back and a small glass deflector. Plenty of air intakes and aerodynamic bits everywhere#44; the Sagaris has everything of racecar. Attractive#44; almost scary the Sagaris oozes performance and enthusiasm.

Even the inside is non#45;standard. A nearly perfect finish with an emphasis on minimalism#44; the leather and aluminium make for a perfect blend. The seats over fine comfort and everything is naturally well within reach. Being a British car#44; it is obviously right hand drive but a left hand version for the continent will be available in the near future.

The steering wheel. very small#44; very race car like.

Motorization: 310KM/h#133;

The 406 brake horsepower#44; 4#45;litre straight six develops 420 Newton metres of torque for z weight of 1000kg. Thus#44; this TVR peaks out at a top speed of 310km/h#44; but its acceleration#44; measured at 3.7 seconds from naught to 100km/h#44; makes the Sagaris quicker than a Ferrari F430 and a Porsche Carrera GT.

On the road: Frighteningly effective

As soon as you put your foot down#44; you are thrown back into your seat by the power but also its breath taking sonority. The Sagaris handles very much like a racecar. It runs through corners flat and with its natural over steer tendency it is quite an amusing car to drive.

Not a single driving aid to be found#44; the front axle is incisive#44; the brakes are impressively effective. but our fun was dampened when the skies opened#44; and that#146;s when things become a little tricky#44; and we were quickly brought back down to earth. but still what a thrill to drive such a machine. all that is left is the price. you could buy a Ferrari Enzo but for the same money you could buy one for yourself and 12 for your mates.
