TVR's latest limited production, over-200mph, carbon-Kevlar GT car starred on their stand at the 2000 Motorshow in Birmingham. Meet the new boy - the Tuscan R. The family resemblance to the Tuscan is clear but it's got a character all of its own. Nose goes in where the Tuscan's goes out and vice versa. No pepper pot grille either. Fastback rear styling with bodywork in a carbon fibre and Kevlar composite. Pre-production car isn't completely finished, but since the purchaser can change just about anything in the spec - brakes, wheels, engine, gearbox, shocks - how could any one example be representative?
Also new is the Tamora - cheeky retro styling. Still has 330bhp though. Newly-built Speed 12 GT race car looks very mean in black. A looming figure in any rear-view mirror. No doubt about the star of the show for TVR fans though. Tuscan R - due next season in the British GTs. Look out, Porsche.
