    Much to my surprise TVR, low-volume purveyor of kick-ass cars are back from the dead! :eek:

    Not sure. I assume the man who likes like someone just shoved something up his bum in pic 3 is in charge now?

    Anyway I hope they do well. We need some mental cars to remind us how bland and normal most are :)

    There's a TVR specialist across the road from me here at work.

    They are always very, very busy. Most days there will be at least 5 TVRs either being towed in or arriving on the back of a lorry. :D

    They look great and sound even better (when they are working). Great to see them back in production.

    Other than the hideous interior, is the exterior any different from the one it replaces?

    Nasty looking wheels and "normal" exhausts. It doesn't really replace the previous Sagaris though: TVR have been busts and not making cars at all. This is their <zombie> resurrection.

    I don't know too much about cars or even if TVR are any good, but I spotted one outside a private hospital and fell in love.

    TVR stands for Trevor...

    That's right, you have a car called Trevor.

    Still want one?:D





    Mine's a Griffith if your handing them out, but it's a car that'll kill you for being stupid.

    Judging by all the grey hair and bald heads in those pictures... seems their demographic may be changing. :p

    I don't really care what the tousled headed bean pole says, but I'd be surprised if he doesn't have a stupid grin on his face - until the back end whips out of one of his powerslides and slaps him between the chops. Welcome back TVR (for however long it is this time!)
