Speed Six- A Review

The TVR Tuscan Speed Six went into production in the year 2000. The car has a novel hard top which stows into the boot along the removable rear screen, enough room for two decent suitcases (or a couple of golf Although the kerb weight of the car is a 1000 kg, creature comforts as air conditioning and power steering are included.

TVR#8217;s own engine, the Speed Six, is fitted the mechanically fastened bonnet Over time, TVR included the six in all Tuscan derivatives in varying of tune:

3.6 Litre Mk1 #8211; 350 BHP and 290

4.0 Litre Mk1 #8211; 360 BHP and 310 ft.lbf

4.0 Mk1 Red Rose #8211; 380 BHP and 310ft.lbf

4.0 Mk1 S (Pre 2003) #8211; 390 BHP and 310

4.0 Litre Mk1 S (Post 2003) 400 BHP and 315 ft.lbf

4.0 Litre Mk2 (Post #8211; 380 BHP and 310 ft.lbf

4.0 Litre Mk2 S 2005) #8211; 400 BHP and 315 ft.lbf

4.0 Mk2 Convertible (Post 2005) 380 BHP and

In contrast to modern design techniques, TVR did not use any computer instead the vehicle shape was by a team of TVR#8217;s own stylists, led by McTaggert with the close of Chairman Peter Wheeler. In it took two years to finalise the stunning form.

Designing a car in way is inordinately time consuming, it does offer certain it is rarely possible to control a on a computer as subtly as one can when by hand. it is commonly recognised the tooling for mass produced takes longer to develop the styling of the car itself; this is not the case with a car designed by

Many of the features found on the features that make the car so are included for sound engineering but serve to enhance the overall of the vehicle. As a case in point, the bonnet arrangement (the bonnet cover is bolted to the forms a lightly stressed allowing engineers to duct the very precisely. In addition the of hinges and gas struts mean the bonnet cover can be manufactured to be light weight.

In simple one may deduce that the exterior of the is extravagant contrasted and complemented by the which is relatively minimal in Function has once again form and the interior components are to the quality. an example of the interior can be seen in the curved aluminium top which acts as one of the transverse beams of the car.

An example of the original thinking of TVR has manifested itself in the instrument which is manufactured in house. The design allows a link the binnacle and the engine management which with its vast of sensors monitoring various parameters, allows for a comprehensive of data to be displayed to the driver.

The are easily selectable via a rotary knob, which allows the to easily access the various readouts the vehicle has to offer. the datasets available are, level, oil level, oil temperature, speed, battery voltage, pressure, ambient air temperature and speed. An additional feature is at the top of the instrument binnacle in the form of shift lights; the lights can be to communicate to the driver his preferred speed, allowing the driver to gear at an optimum point in the rev range.

TVR#8217;s design engineers a painstaking amount of time the seats for the car.

Many TVR opt to sample the full potential of cars on the race track. To end, and because built in adjustment in not practical in such a the seats have removable This allows the driver passenger) to sit lower in the seat, ample room for the occupants to crash helmets.

The styling of the car has influenced by the engine layout and TVR#8217;s approach, engine up and driving the rear wheels, the use of the most classic of sports car #8211; the straight six. As a note, TVR doubled up the speed six to the incredible Speed Twelve.

One of the primary characteristics of a straight six is it can be perfectly balanced. TVR has opted to use an all construction with significant new which make a departure the traditional mould used by the engineers. It is the first TVR engine to four valves per cylinder higher volumetric efficiency at revs, affording the motor a sports orientated nature.

followers allow higher acceleration, improving the engines A quiet and reliable drive is by chain driven twin camshafts. The engine sits low in the cars chassis to promote a centre of gravity, enhanced by a 15 engine cant which the bonnet to sit even lower.

The designers have achieved a low CoG by using a dry sump system, to that in the Speed Eight and Twelve racing variants. The features steel conrods to slipper style lightweight and a nodular iron crankshaft.

The vehicles chassis is based a shorten version to that on the Cerbera, affording more than one would find in a or Griffith. The overall dimensions of the have been derived the Tuscan Challenge racing The benefit of using a race chassis are immediately obvious, for rarely has a vehicle chassis so comprehensively crash tested.

The cage, door beams and aluminium strenghtening beams are all of TVR#8217;s commitment to safety, which has been upper in the design process from the start. For additional information and TVR visit:
