Wikipedia records the Cerbera 4.5 V8 Red Rose Lightweight as weighing 1,060 kgs, developing 440 bhp at 7,250 RPM, 402 lb ft at 5.500 RPM, and capable of 0-60 mph in 3.9 secs with a top speed of 193 mph. And don’t forget it’s a 2 + 2 …… So...A Practicable Supercar !!
And having looked at the pictures you think, “Havent I seen this car somewhere before ?”
Yes you have ! In March 2014 , the highly respected motoring journalist Steve Sutcliffe asked Str8six if we maybe had a Cerbera he could compare with a Viper GTS for an article in Classic & Sports Car. We thought long and hard as mint cars lent to the Press usually return with “evidence” in the paintwork !! But Steve is a careful man – and the car came back pristine (to be sold to its next owner 2 days later !!). The article duly appeared in July 2014.
The following are some of Steve’s impressions:
“The Cerbera is a 4.5 and unquestionably one of the tidiest examples in the UK right now. Of all the Cerberas that I’ve driven over the years , it’s probably the sweetest I’ve ever encountered”.
“This one feels just as explosive as I remember in a straight line, and has just as delicious a gearchange , with the same instant throttle response and hyper-fast steering rack that so defined its driving experience all those years ago”.
“The further you go in this car, the friendlier it becomes. That somewhat restricted vista is a direct result of there being a full rollcage installed, and it serves as a constant reminder that you are driving something that may not have traction control and may not have ABS, but which is fundamentally going to look after you”.
“You are connected to the road in a Cerbera in a way that few other cars at any price can replicate. You steer it towards the apex of a corner, and it goes there with almost zero unwanted inertia to overcome. The same thing applies to the way it stops, and the way it accelerates, the further you squeeze its unusually long travel accelerator, the harder it goes. It sounds rather lovely too.”
“The straight-line performance is little short of epic, with 0-100 mph taking 8.9 seconds”.
“I always did have a soft spot for the TVR Cerbera. Back in the mid-1990s, it was one of the most exciting cars I’d ever driven . I’m delighted to report that not a great deal has changed in the 20 years since “.
(And don’t forget this is an August 2002 model – produced in the penultimate year of Cerbera production !).
And it’s available on FILM…..! Ask us and we will give you the link
