Waiting patiently to get your hands on one of Mr Smolenski's planned V8 TVRs is not the only way to get hold of a Corvette-powered Trevor, it seems. Buckinghamshire-based Topcats Racing is currently in the process of slotting a 7.0-litre LS7 GM V8 beneath the bonnet of a TVR Sagaris.
Topcats - which runs an LS7-engined Mosler MT900 in the Britcar endurance series - have already dropped Corvette mills into several race cars, and one road car - a Cerbera - which is now running around powered by an LS3 V8.
Nice...the Sagaris is one of my fav styled cars of all time, I want

Who will be the first to impress? N.S. or the British boys at Topcats? As a TVR owner since 1981 I can't understand why TVR can't be British based. Blackpool may be no more, but with U.K. and /or E.U. financial support surely a manufacturing base should be established in U.K. What a way for a 'new government' to announce a new manufacturing enterprise and the creation of new jobs +R&D etc. If Ant & Deck are publisising Sags on there new HD advert who knows what could happen!!

Is there anyone who doesn't love the look of the Sag?

Hope they do a LS9 as well though I feel sorry for rear tyres already....
