Gotta love this car. With a 90 hp advantage over the regular Tuscan, this thing will eat a Viper for lunch!

You can find some of the older TVR's in the US, but I don't think there are any of the newer models around. TVR stopped exporting them to the US somewhere in the seventies due to product liability and environmental issues.

I believe there are a handful of Cerberas, but for the most part...no.

Yeah, some dumbass dealers were doing un-necessary stuff. One lady had here engine replaced under warranty, and all it neeeded was a new fan!!
So, they stopped getting ripped off by crummy dealers (who were generally idiots) and started sellin only in Europe.
Too bad.

Faisal Khan has a Cerbera in the US. It is believed to be the only modern TVR in the United States. Read the story about him importing the TVR. It's unbelievable!

800+hp and 650 ft lbs in a car that weighs just over 2200 lbs. It has a 7.7 liter V12, and 0-60 is about 3.5, I think.

THere is a speed 12 forum here.
What movie does Travolta have a TVR in??
Yeah, those stats are 'bout right, but it is close to 3.2 second 0-60 time, and 240 mph top speed.

The movie is called "Operation Swordfish". It features a TVR Tuscan. I think the car can be seen in the downloadable trailer.
