I'm a car nut, but always had a passion for German and Italian speed machines. However, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July 2000 (see my review for details) I found myself at the top of the course where the cars park at the end of each group run. Several supercars - Lambos, Astons, Ferraris and such like had just appeared in a cloud of dust one by one at the end of their timed session. Each of the drivers looked cool (in their shades), tanned and like they were enjoying themselves. Then a sound more incredible than the Phantom Jets that had earlier been racing not that far overhead burst through the trees in front of me. The TVR which appeared to be much lower and flatter than all the publicity shots I had seen appeared. The (unknown to me) driver appeared after contorting himself out of the rollover cage and removed his crash helmet to a cheer from the assembled crowd. It wasn’t Jim Carey, but if you know what I mean, it was. No drugs can do that! I await an enormous legacy or some other illegal means to acquire the bunce to buy one of these cars. If they’re not too reliable, I’ll have to console myself with a CLK-GTR and a Porsche GTR for everyday use!
Wow. This is one hell of a mean machine if ever i saw one! Its big bulky shape gives it a feel of brutalness and monsterous force. It was unquestionably the star of the London Motor show in 1997, devastating everybody who came into contact with it. It is very hard to imagine this beauty out on the road but miraculously it did happen! Very few people believed that the speed 12 would make it into production. Happily, TVR boss Peter Wheeler was among the believers, and one of these £150,000 monsters is currently being built each month ( for sale to Wheeler-approved clientele only). The power which the speed 12 posesses is unquestionably amazing. In fact, this geogeous car is an absolute masterpiece!
The TVR Speed 12 is the most awesome car I have ever seen today and the most beautiful one with it's lovely curves. I love the way the front grill is design which almost makes it look alive with it's roaring engine when u floor it. It is the best and cool looking. If u are wanting one they are not out to buy yet. But if u want to see one go to a motor show near u with one. Thanx C Ya
Simply Awesome are the only words to describe this car. The sheer brute power and aggresive look of the car make other supercars look like family saloons. The day I saw the speed 12 it became my favourite car and then when I sat in it it just got better but then the best of all was when I heard it started up the noise was unbelievable. The speed 12 is set to be one of the greatest "super"cars of all time!!
Being in the presence of what is the most powerfull car on the road today is something of an honor...Ok, I must admit i have not been privliged to drive this yet, however I follow (through my occupation) the UK Privlege GT/GTO series, and guess what this year there is a works TVR Speed 12...lets face it at £175k each and a 1 car a week production rate there are unlikely to be too many on the streets just yet. Anyway on to the review, the car dominated the recent race at Silverstone, the car is incredibly low slung and long, you know when it's near by the phenominal roar of the engine - this is most definately not an everyday car. In the company of Marcos, Listers, 911's and Ferrari 355's this car was in a league totally of it's own, nothing there touched it. Unfortunately reliability was a problem (par for the course with TVR's!) and towards the end the TVR slipped a couple of places and finished 3rd - but I can't emphesise more this car is up there with the F40, F1 and CLK-GTR truly worthy of the title "Supercar" If you happen to have the spare cash to buy one let me know and i'll happily join you in giving it a good run for it's money.
