That's a awful example. Interior additions are slap dash. The price is laughable.

Well if that's a £100,000+ car I look forward to selling my Tamora for at least £50k ! haha

Laughable, I'd feel ashamed to present that car for 6 figures in that condition. I'm all for people pushing the barriers of values for our TVR's but that's a joke, park that next to a Speed Six presented vehicle (pretty much any from what I've seen) and anyone with some sense will spend less money and take the better presented car. If they can't get the interior looking 'right' it would give me little confidence in other work done on the car. Supposed professionals should know better and have higher standards instead of higher levels of greed......................

I've heard a lot of good things about Amore but I also formed the opinion that they, or their clients were being a little greedy, at least in relation to a car I was interested in.

I was all set to see a green Griffith 500 they had up for sale for £18500 in October/November. It was supposedly tidy but as with a lot of Griffs the wood veneer dash was cracked. Just before going to see it I checked the website and the price had been bumped to £20000 following the dash replacement. A fortnight later the price had increased again to £22500.

I can't see it listed as having sold on their website, perhaps the owner changed his mind, but the thought of someone asking an extra £4000 for a replacement dashboard in a car that didn't sell in a month put me off.

Sub 3 seconds? Exceptionally hard to achieve in a lightweight car.

3 seconds - off a cliff, straight down!
I do not normally judge other peoples choices but this is without a doubt the worst looking Sag I have ever seen. The exhausts look like they were prepared by someone that normally 'pimps' Saxo's; the rear wing which (like it or not) is one the things that says 'Sagaris' has been removed; the additions to the interior are awful and I definitely couldn't live with the colour choices. All of this is a matter of opinion but the price is just crazy!

Someone should offer the asking price IF they can witness the car actually achieving that time hehesmile

Sadly not a rarity, I've had a similar experience with poor presentation accompanied with a high asking price @ TVR Mads on a T350 some time back. I'd heard good things about him/them but was exceptionally disappointed with both the car and attitude/service. Like I say i'm all for people pushing the values, but you should be able to demonstrate a well presented car and some vfm if that's the case

The 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds is just nitpicking but....how hard is it to achieve?

I have done quite a few drag runs. My very best achieved a 0-60 foot in 1.63 seconds and using the various calculators on dragracing sites, this apparently gives me a 0–60 mph in about 3.2 seconds.
That is achieved using drag radials nicely warmed on my 400 BHP Chimaera, raising the revs to the limiter and dumping the clutch. This achieves practically no wheelspin and the front seems to lift off the ground ,, (but unlikely).

Cars with much more powerful engines are not much faster in the 0-60 dash but where they come into their own is once they have gained traction, ( say about 30 miles an hour) they can power on to really high speeds.

If that isn’t off topic I don’t know what is!

Would much rather have the 4.3 Amore are selling for £79k.

The interior and dash are awful on that Sag, hardly any chrome in sight, and that square plastic light switch dial hurl

This Tuscan is also pretty out there for interiors: -

The light switch dial looks familiar to me. 1990s Ford Mondeo perhaps? frown

It looks like a children's playroom. Really odd why anyone would spec that.

That’s been for sale for 18 months now, I went to see it when it was up for sale privately, it was £15000 cheaper than it is now, is interior is just awful in the flesh
