I've posted a few pics of this car for those who have never seen/heard of one...
The later models develop approx 170 bhp from a 3litre V6. If I remember correctly the engine is by Ford. 170bhp from 3 litres is a little disappointing to say the least, but sends the car to 60 in 7 seconds and up to a max of 130mph...
I don't like the design.. It was introduced in '86 but it looks like an older car. It's a car with plenty of character and TVR nuts seem to love it... You can also pick one up for less than £10k so it represents good value for a performance car.. Here are the pics.

cheers
jay

mmmmmmm, it seems I'm the only person here who likes it. I'll tell you what, if you ever happen to find one in your garage, just give it to me and we can all be happy.

It is the styling that looks like 70's Aston Martin. It has got that sort of tone about it, especially with that colour.
