 The 1999 London Motor Show - by CAINT.COM
It has TVR's own straight six engine which pumps out 360 bhp and has a novel roof design whereby, despite looking like a fixed head coupé, it is able to stow its roof and rear window in the boot, while still leaving room for luggage.
However, with today's engine management systems and the far wider rev ranges of modern powerplants, it is no longer necessary to monitor the engine speed all the time.
Like the Speed Twelve and racing variants of the Speed Eight engine, it has a dry sump which means it can sit very low in the chassis and that it doesn't suffer from oil surge which can be a problem with the long sump required for this configuration of engine.

 TVR Tuscan Racer
TVR are rather fond of the name 'Tuscan'.

 TVR Cars
In 1998 the 750 craftsmen and engineers at TVR produced 2,000 hand-built motor cars, every one of which was built to a customer’s specification, and every one of which cost less than half as much as the “mass produced” equivalent from Germany or Italy.
TVR proves that the correlation between these two variables is not necessarily as the Porsches and the Ferrari’s of this world would have us believe.
But the TVR spirit seems to belong to a different age, a world when roads were quiet and leafy, when a cardiovascular workout could be had by merely “dropping” the clutch, and when drivers of high-powered motor cars were held in the kind of esteem normally reserved for venturesome aviators.

TVR was established in the late 1940s by a brilliant engineer called Trevor Wilkinson (TreVoR), who firmly established the TVR formula within a decade, with the introduction of the fast and remarkably light TVR Grantura.
Every TVR since 1949 has been designed and manufactured on the same premises in Blackpool, and the Lancashire-based company is evidently proud of the fact that they have far more employees per car than any of their competitors.
TVR's latest success is the Cerbera Speed Twelve, which is capable of an astonishing 240 mph and incorporates the powerful 7.7 litre V12 engine that gives the car its name.

 21st Century Cars - TVR Cerbera Speed Twelve   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
With its hybrid aluminium honeycomb and tubular steel chassis, carbon fibre bodywork, six speed sequential gearbox and unique fabricated steel blocked V12 800 bhp powerplant, this sensational lightweight variation of the Cerbera theme is in the tradition of week-end race cars that can be driven to and from the track.
This allows the exhausts to exit cleanly away from the engine and then turn ahead of the footwell to run down the sills, and the driver to sit as far rearward as possible.
The removal of the previous structural reliance upon the tunnel allows this to be as narrow as the gearbox dictates and in turn allows the driver to be positioned further inboard towards the centreline of the car.

 TVR Cerbera Speed 12 - Page 2 - SportsCarForums.com
The Cerbera Speed Twelve's 7.7-litre V12 engine was actually two sixes joined at the hip with a special engine block, all of it fabricated by TVR itself.
When the roadgoing Speed Twelve was developed, the restrictors went in the bin allowing the mighty engine to gorge on enough air to reach its full,extraordinary potential.
The Speed Twelve is the same weight as our other cars, so all that extra power could go to make the car quicker, if only you can get the traction to transmit it to the road and that's the limiting factor at the moment.
