Yeah me too but do quite fancy another sometime. Maybe a T350 or Tamora but pretty rare things and prices seem on the up.

Am a wanna be TVR owner. Was never able to drive Mikey's Cerbera as I couldn't reach the pedals!!

Would love a Sagaris, but would happily settle for a T350. Just need to move the Italian metal off the drive to make room ....

Naaaaah. I just look at what matters.

Girlfriend was tempted by a tamora... Bought a house instead. Story of my life ffs!

I swapped my Tasmin for a Tamora couple of months ago for a few days. It wasn't a rolls royce, but it had 16 inch wheels and 50 section tyres. Ride was quite good, you could use it every day.

All the sp6 issues should be sorted by now. Servicing and running costs are high which put me off. What about a 4.5 Chimaera? They'll be happy with an oil change every 6k miles.

Driven several and never had any problems. Most people describe me as shorty!... Pedal boxes are adjustable.

Ummmm, I am 5 foot 1, Mike is 6 foot 5 - would need a very adjustable pedal box. I thought we'd looked at it once and wasn't practical for swapping drivers when out and about (we always argue over who gets the keys to drive!).

I am 5ft 9 and most of that is in my back, not my legs, so I had a bit of trouble with my TVRs. I had two Griffiths and a Tuscan. Had to have the pedals adjusted and the seat fully forward.

Still loved every (working) moment

My Dad’s a TVR driver. Took his S with him when he moved to the south of France. It took a LOT of effort to get it registered over there. To the point of having to weld plates to the chassis bearing the VIN number etc, to bring it in line with French legislation.

Apparently the S series were never sold in France, and when my Dad was trying to navigate the legal hurdles there was no TVR company in existence to help from the UK end!

I can imagine that was fun!
