    Theres an article in an Evo issue, one of their guys takes it around silverstone and wets himself.

    Very good reading.

    Cedric - I sound like a chipmunk on there. Some friends of mine were like, "were you going through puberty?" I was like, no I was already 20, I just sound like a girl.

    There may be a similar type of car, i.e. more upmarket, high performance, but I fear that it will have a different package and styling.
    Thanks for all the fish

    A common complaint with older TVRs mainly because they leaked in the slightest downpour though

    the gearbox was also a huge problem i knew a guy that worked there (till he went off to work with the LNT race team) and they had the same box in and out 6 times in a day!! it couldnt handly the power

    there's nothing wrong with the car, only the gearbox

    i think this is quite possibly the only thread i've ever seen where nobody has said they wouldn't take the car if they had the chance to own it.

    TVR fans, I've got a question I can't answer myself:

    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/90012.htm

    This Tuscan "S", notice anything strange about it (look at the photo of the rear)?

    It looks like a regular (if you can describe a Tuscan using such a word) Tuscan's been back to TVR for an upgrade and has ended-up having the 'S' package installed.

    The rear lights are in the wrong position for a factory Tuscan S, and the L.E.D. indicators inside the top of the rear window remain. Compare this one with the Black S pictured earlier in this thread to see what I mean.

    The question is: Is this an upgrade or was there an initial period when Tuscan S models shared everything bar the rear spoiler and front splitter with the standard car?
