i have driven in both countries (usa & uk) & there are alot of laws that are different to one another. but that is besides the point.

The thing is, i am a limey, & a yank ! yes it is true, but average americans think that the best car in the world has to get " miles to the gallon! (ie - the viper). It is a proven fact, that americans don't sit back and look at the whole picture and see what an amzing car that the tuscan is. (ie - guy that said the comment about the headlights!) the tuscan is a beautiful car, and anyone that says other wise can kiss my white ASS !!!!! :smoker2: :argue: :apoke:

Yes, I know the cars are small. And light. I was commenting on the big gap at the back of the front fender. Looks kinda viper like. Vipers are heavy, cumbersome and have an engine that just refuses to rev high.

I don't like vipers. I like TVRs, because they are everything the viper is not.
I actualy like the multi-light arrangements better. The single lights are too common. Common is something TVR is not. Thats part of the reason I love them so much. They are so different from anything else on the roads anywhere.:smoker:

Well, to each their own . I will soon be in the market for a rare exotic, and I think a TVR may get my nod if I can get one snuck into Canada. I think I might just get it registered as a 1966 model

My other choices are a DeTomaso Pantera GT5, a 308 QV widebody, or a homolgamation Lancia Stratos...

actually the reason why TVR's arent in the US is because the boss says he wants to makes the cars that he wants to, and he doesnt want to have to compromise them by making them to meet US regulations. They sell plenty of cars anyway, so they have no need right now to move over to the US market.

There is the first ever road test of the Tuscan R in Evo Magazine (a British magazine). They say it is by far the best TVR yet, and has 440bhp/350lb ft/1060kg weight. The engine is mounted quite a way behind the front axle, and the body is carbon fibre with aluminium chassis, and a 100mm wider front end. Personally i dont like the looks of it, with a weird rear half, that is supposedly only there to aid aerodynamics. It will be on sale in September in the UK at 75,000 (about $100,000 i think), hopefully i will see one on the road pretty soon

as to 200sx's question, yeh TVR did export one to the US to film Swordfish, cos there was a program about it here in the UK. I gotta say i feel sorry for you Americans not having TVR's, to see them in the flesh makes them seem so much more exotic than just looking at pictures of them.

And for those of you, you want one bad enough there are ways of importing it and making it street legal. Of course all it takes is money.

Re: Tuscan R

some some said earlier that this car was a 7 litre v12 but it is still the same engine as the standard tuscan apart from being substatially modified. i saw this car at the british motor show in 2002! was gorg! really like it! spec is 0-60 in 3.5ish and 0-100 in around 6-7secs. top speed is said to be around 215mph. The nex typhon is this car with a supercharger generatin 500-550bhp. this car and the new typhon both have sequential gear boxes as apposed to standard manuals.! They are not the biggest sellers yet though! shame! cant wait to see one on the road!

Re: Tuscan R

Best place for TVR spotting is the mechanics workshop.
Nice cars, but unreliable peices of #$&%.
Plenty of people get rid of them and opt for kit cars.
Not surprising the Smolenski sold them.
