British Supercar, little heard of outside of the isles, aside from the appearance of a TVR Tuscan in the movie Swordfish. The cars are all great performance bargains, riding on steel tube-frame beckbones with fibreglass bodywork which results in the cars having a very light curb weight (~2200 pounds or so). This, combined with the fact that a 350 HP v8 is weakest powerplant available, results in blistering performance, all for about 30,000 pounds base price. Their top-of-the-line car is the Tuscan T440R, essentially a roadgoing lemans car, which is so named because it has 440HP, is a carbonfibre rocket that tops out at 215 mph and can run with the best of the supercars, all for a 50k pounds price tag.
Those of you who see the corvette as the ultimate performance bargain have obviously never heard of a TVR
American 1: Damn that car is crazy looking!!!
American 2: It's supple curves look almost organic
TVR Driver: That's the name of the game with a TVR, now hold still while I smoke your candy asses
