This thing is a monster. Hits 240 mph! 0 to 60 is well under 4 seconds.

Yeah, TVR is a wonderful manufacturer. They've been quite productive as of late, as well. All recently they've released the Tuscan and Tuscan R, the Tamora, the Speed 12 has finally made it to production, and they are working on, if haven't already completed, a high performance Cerbera (V12, I believe.)

Looks like they made some changes to the exhaust system since it was a concept. still looks killer. 800+ hp, too.

anyone know anything about that Higher performance Cerbera?

enzo,
i think what you're talking about- the high performance Cerbera with V12 is the Speed 12.
Just go to http://www.tvr.co.uk , click on Models and click on Cerbera Speed 12.

Does any one know if any of these beasts (except the Cerbera - which I hear you can import), is available or will be available in the US? And how much if possible.

No, the Cerbera I speak of is not the Speed 12. What I heard of used a less potent engine and retained Cerbera everything else (except pertinent changes to accomodate the new engine, i.e. suspension). It was rumored above 600HP, but nowhere near the speed 12.

As far as I know, the Cerbera is the only current model that has come to the states, but I've heard both ways about the Griffith.

The Cerbera Speed 12 race car uses the V12 engine from the original Speed 12 (now discontinued). In race form with air restrictors it put out around 600bhp. Unrestricted it's good for almost 900bhp. No top speed testing has been performed yet, so top end is actually unknown. It's only been in a wind tunnel recently.

No TVRs have been sold in the USA since the late eighties. There have been a few personal imports including one Cerbera, but that was recently smashed in a crash.

All the latest news regarding the cars can be found at http://www.pistonheads.com/tvr

These cars are beasts. Jeeze, 2.9 seconds?!?! What do you think about the dancing platform on the back though?? I don't like it that much...wouldn't it be more streamlined without it? And what is the cost?

It might aid in downforce.
