After many we’ve decided to finally a look at TVR’s latest the Tuscan S. Most people probably seen a similar car in the flick, Swordfish. and were what it is, where it’s and most importantly, what’s the bonnet.

TVR is a British automaker, in limited edition and predominatnly and rare vehicles. You don’t see of these beauties cruising the in Australia, but for the price, you couldn’t ask for bang per buck.

TVR was started in England in 1947 by Wilkinson. He set up his own garage and called the Trevcar Motors. Later year, a mechanic by the name of Picard joined with and TVR Engineering was born.

Today, TVR is the wholly British-owned car company.

The S is a high-performance sports car, to be enjoyed. It is more at home on coastal roads and race than stuck in traffic.

The Tuscan S is a two-door coupe, room for driver and passenger and with interior options as a colour coded leather wheel, stainless steel plates, leather seats lumbar supports, aluminium and a CD stereo.

Sure, the options are minimal, but these cars are not to provide a quiet ride GPS navigation and jelly suspension. For it’s all about enjoyment if the cars aren’t fun to drive, it doing its job.

Sporting a rather unorthodox configuration, the Tuscan S has been with a massive 4.0-litre, mill. You would expect six-cylinder cars to emerge the V mould (i.e. V6) but TVR opted for an

Together with four per cylinder (a total of 24) the Tuscan S can on just about any dream car you can of – except for another TVR called the Speed 12 – an 7.0-litre V12.

The Tuscan S is capable of reaching and can accelerate from standstill to in about 4.1 seconds. The stainless fibre twin exhaust looks amazing and would to take honours as one of the coolest systems we’ve ever With magnificent 18-inch the Tuscan S is an impressive performer looks to match.

Another remarkable aspect of the supercar is its weight. Since the inception, TVR has stuck to a number of when making sports they must be front – rear wheel they must have an perfect 50/50 weight and they must be light.

the Tuscan S adheres to all these and – get this – in at 1100kg. This is about the weight as the 2002 Holden – a sub-compact car. puts the Tuscan R in elite with power-to-weight ratios on par some very exotic like the Mclaren F1, Lambhorgini VT 6.0 and Ferrari F50.

So there you have it. The TVR Tuscan S TVR makes cars to order and at its annual produciton is about cars. The Tuscan S will set you £48,800 which converts to $135,000. For what you get, the the power and rarity, this is an bargain.
