TVR Cerbera: “The 4.5 embarrasses those with more cash than car knowledge”

tvr-cerbera_tvr_unofficial-blog_1
The official press release of the TVR Cerbera, probably the best press document I ever read and that gives a powerful idea of the essence of the TVR Cerbera: The Cerbera began as a styling exercise, an experiment. A running prototype was unveiled at the 1993 London Motor Show where it met tremendous acclaim and following year it was decreed that the Cerbera would use a version of the raceproven TVR Speed Eight engine. TVR has at its disposal the most gruelling of engineering tests: the ultra-competitive Read more [...]

TVR Unofficial Blog | TVR Cerbera 4.5 MK2 vs Chrysler / Dodge Viper GTS
Steve Sutcliffe of Classic & Sports cars magazine makes a very nice comparison between a TVR Cerbera MK2 (the featured car in the video is a great 4.5 MK2) and the Coupé Version, the GTS, of the mighty American Viper. JUST ASTONISHING! That's the conclusion Steve Sutcliffe gives pointing out the facts of the Cerbera: "something" between 400 and 440 hp, 1 ton weight, flat plane crank engine, and after cocluding his speech with a "really, really fast" he says "have a listen to this!".

EVERYBODY FREEZE – TVR Cerbera MK2: ALL 4.5 are Lightweights?

TVR Cerbera 4500 Red Rose Lightweight
I already wrote several times about the TVR Cerbera Lightweight. I think this particoular version deserves a great attentio by any TVR fellows. That's  why I created the Register of TVR Cerbera Lightweight. It grown up throught the months with many units despite a serious TVR enthusiast (and former technician at Blackpool facility) is sure that ONLY 6 genuine Lightweights are said to be ever produced. But recently, around the great example pictured in this post, a new theory emerges. The Read more [...]

Le Mans Classic 2012 – TVR Car Club of France’s meeting: the Cerberas

lemans_classic_2012_tvr-cerbera_tvr_blog_4
"At least" 4 TVR Cerberas (both MK1 and MK2) were at Le Mans. And the most exciting thing was to listen to them during the free laps along the circuit. Two of them gave really a thrilling sound coming from their V8 AJP engine. Something that could not be explained but surely it was something fantastic. It's easy to think that modern Ferraris' exhaust sound is the best ever. But this is the result of a complicated technical procedure and, most of all, this is a product of marketing laws. Look Read more [...]
