I think the pinacle of the current production line at TVR would the the Sagaris - However each of them are amazing in their own way. Personally, the interior is the best bit for me on the Typhon. Thanks for the pictures !

No, the name of the car is indeed Typhon with one O; this can clearly be seen in the third picture on the second post.

Typhon is a great name:

Typhon
by Ryan Tuccinardi
Typhon is the offspring of Gaia and Tartarus. His mate is Echidna and both were so fearful that when the gods saw them they changed into animals and fled in terror. Typhon's hundred, horrible heads touched the stars, venom dripped from his evil eyes, and lava and red-hot stones poured from his gaping mouths. Hissing like a hundred snakes and roaring like a hundred lions, he tore up whole mountains and threw them at the gods.

Zeus soon regained his courage and turned, and when the other gods saw him taking his stand, they came back to help him fight the monster. A terrible battle raged, and hardly a living creature was left on Earth. But Zeus was fated to win, and as Typhon tore up huge Mount Aetna to hurl at the gods, Zeus struck it with a hundred well-aimed thunderbolts and the mountain fell back, pinning Typhon underneath. There the monster lies to this very day, belching fire, lava and smoke through the top of the mountain.

Echidna, his hideous mate, escaped destruction. She cowered in a cave, protecting Typhon's offspring, and Zeus let them live as a challenge to future heroes. Echidna and Typhon's children are the Nemean Lion, Cerberus, Ladon, the Chimera, the Sphinx, and the Hydra.


So, in other words; It's the Daddy of the Chimeara and Cerbera

The first 4 pictures are not a Typhon but a T440R, but I suppose it looks identical anyway.

I hope TVR do build something like this, but I am glad that they postponed it because releasing a car that promised a lot and failed to deliver would be very damaging to the company.

They are getting out of the stage where they weren't taken seriously because of reliability issues, and need to keep upping the quality if they are to really take on Porsche, etc.

I know all TVR names come from Greek mythology, but I can't say I've heard of a Sagaris...help me out here.

EDIT: nvm, google helped
"Labrys is the term for a doubleheaded axe, known to the Classical Greeks as pelekus πέλεκυς or sagaris"

He was a shape-shifting deity IIRC.
