Just came back from London and saw the TVR Tuscan (lister) in person for the first time. Many similarities cosmetically with the Viper RT, but more rounded- even had the same throaty exhaust rumble. What a sweet car...

SupraQ:

Is this the car? I believe the S type has just shy of 400 bhp with a couple of hundred pounds less weight.

Yeah, that's the one. Very impressive in person. The couple hundred pounds less is apparent when you see it- quite a bit smaller vehicle.

Cool car. I heard they break down a lot though.
i have a buddy with a cerbie. It appears to me that they wear quickly.

yupp. I was behind him in a tunnel (remember that ride last summer over at stockton on hwy 4) when he started backfiring. And these aren't small flames we are talking about foot long flames of fire shooting out of the rear of the car with the sound of a shotgun. And not just one, many, many each time he gets off the gas.

I'm not that impressed with the build quality of those cars.

I remember going on the bay area exotic car cruises with this car. The build quality on those cars is horrible. Leather and door panels peeling away, etc.

He is running it under his own auto manufacturing license. It's currently registered as an experimental prototype. I've seen plenty of exotics being registered that way (also means it can't be sold very easily).

The S version is 400hp V6 and weighs 1100kg....0-60 in 3.6 and 0-100 in 8 sec flat and have race inspired chassis and suspension....Incredible looking imho but would choose a Viper over it for its proven durability/reliability....Heard bad things about it from my cousin that lives in England......heres a link to the official site if interested in more info:
