Well it kind of is, Abraham. They're not producing new cars at present but offering owners full upgrades using the latest suspension, brakes etc as well as bodykits and interior mods. Don't know when we'll see an all new TVR.

@ Abraham they now update the last cars as explained above by uprating engines, suspension, body and interiors to owners spec and budget. I've seen an article on a 'reborn' Sagaris and I have to say, it looked pretty impressive.

Clint Edwards Mar 24, 2012

Read through Turbos comments out of boredom, and I have discovered that he is a Honda fan. Let the insults fly.

I'd love to see a Griffith 500, its one of only British cars I'd actually want. (Note that this right there is sarcasm, which is designed to fool those into thinking I said one thing when I actually mean something else, do not burn down my, house thank you!)
Clint Edwards Mar 24, 2012
I've seen one in Charlotte, believe it was a Sagaris. I imagine there aren't many
Abraham Mendoza Mar 24, 2012

How does air get to the radiator with that tyre in the way ?
William Delaney Mar 24, 2012
I bet it corners great
Carlton Salmon Mar 24, 2012
Engine is pushed far back in the chassis to make it almost mid-engined. Left plenty of room in the front for the spare. Wouldn't fit in the back because the petrol tank is there.
Abraham Mendoza Mar 24, 2012
Woah, that was unexpected.
