“History Repeating”?? “Back in the day”, the Yanks used to take a Sedan and “Chop” it (i.e slim the roof down). The result - a mean-looking, low-riding Sports vee-hickle!! Well, probably the closest we Europeans got to that was TVR’s fabulous, timeless, mean-looking Cerbera 2 + 2 Sports car…!!
Here at Str8six we have a selection. First , there is a very handsome 4.5 Red Rose Lightweight – but this is listing at £45,000. Then we also have a “Speed 6-engined Cerbera at a little bit more - £48,000. But this one is a 9,000 miles (Not 90K !!), ground up totally restored” example.
But these may be more than you want to outlay ? Sso let’s come back at least £10,000 and see if THIS £35,000 Beauty fits your aspirations !!
It’s a 1998 Cerbera 4.5 V8 with a Moonraker Black exterior and an interior in contrasting Cream - with a new headlining in Black alcantara.
The car was originally bought from Mole Valley TVR, and first registered on 1 Aug 1998. It has been in the hands of its second (only) owner from 30 Apr 2001.
He has had the car regularly serviced. The current mileage is less than 34K, on the clock. But this is largely irrelevant though - because of the extensive rebuild work. THIS Cerbera is essentially a new car with 4000 miles on the clock.
There is an extensive list of significant refurbishment work:
a) In 2008 - Major upgrades:
These included Whirlwind induction system and dyno remap by Julian at Joospeed/Track Car Solutions with custom exhaust system to improve power delivery. Dynoed by Joolz in August at 430bhp and 385 ft lbs torque. The car achieved this with a special exhaust. But this looked “OTT“, so the owner replaced it. The car was subsequently operated at 403 bhp and 360 ft lbs of torque with a standard TVR exhaust.
b) In 2010 (with approx 25K miles on the clock), the car was Totally resprayed.This was a "proper job" in so far as that nine layers of paint were applied - like Rolls Royce used to do.
The Major overhaul continued including fitting a HID kit to the front lights, replacement wood burr on dash, replacement gearbox, silicone coolant hose kit, Raceproved slave cylinder, etc., etc. All this work was carried out by Raceproved at a cost of £8,500.
c) In 2018 (with approx 29K miles on the clock): the car was subjected to a Full body off rebuild with no expense spared. The Chassis was completely refurbished, zinc primed and powder coated. A new AP racing clutch, with lightweight flywheel, was installed . The differential was rebuilt, the steering rack was refurbished, a replacement starter motor and brake master cylinder were installed. Every fuel and brake line was replaced and new brake discs and pads were installed. There’s a lot more but you get the picture. This work was all carried out by Str8six.
It was at this stage that the Vehicle was sent back to the trimmers in Blackpool for the roof headlining to be retrimmed with black alcantara.
The cost of this phase was £22,000 -with an additional £1K for the alcantara.
d) In 2019 (with approx 30K miles on the clock), the car was given a 1000 mile service. And the car’s engine was remapped by Julian at Kits & Classics (originally Joospeed).
As you can derive from the photos of the car and its rebuild, the car is in very good condition.
To add to that, our primary Cerbera engineer has observed that everything about this car is right – overall condition, colourways, wheel size, tyre selection, ride/ handling compromise, headlight appearance, engine tractability, performance and response . And he should know, his name is Wright ! He says if you want to sell it in a couple of years give him a call !
So why is the current owner selling this outstanding Cerbera ? He has just bought an AMG GTR. (Hope the warranty is as good !)
Str8six will supply S149CGH fully prepared, with a 12K service completed, 12 months MOT, 12 months Tax and a Full, “No Quibble” 12 months / 12,000 miles Wear and Tear Warranty, which covers Parts and Labour on the whole car. The car will be equipped with a 12 volt battery charger.
