Friend of ours had one, just for a while as he wanted something nippy while he was waiting for his Aston Martin to be built !!! Loads of money, City Banker. Surprisingly big boot, sounded fantastic.An acquaintance a few years ago had a TVR Chimaera with L300 BHP.
Reminds me of the time we were sat behind a Ferrari. It was there ticking over with a nice rubble. Lad was in the car so I put the windows down he was only around eight at the time. The driver clocked us and was giving it gentle revs and building them up. Lights change and he sets off gentle, takes the turning and blasts the hell out of it. Lad was thrilled to bits.He took me out for a blat in it once, it sounded amazing and the acceleration was like nothing else I’ve been in. We did get a boy racer in a Nova alongside us at the lights revving his engine, Carl gave a couple of obliging revs in return and when the lights changed pulled away nice and gently. I think Nova-boy thought he’d beaten a TVR.
I still really want a Cerbera or Griffith but it’s the ones from the 90s that I love and they weren’t paragons of reliability when they were new. I imagine a 30 year old one would be a serious money pit.
