The TVR Cerbera was manufactured between 1996 and 2003. The name
is derived from 'Cerberus'. the three-headed beast of Greek legend
that guarded the entrance of Hades. The car itself was designed
from the start as a four-seater. The rear seats are smaller than
the front. a design commonly referred to as a '2+2'. However. the
interior is designed so that the passenger seat can slide farther
forward than the driver's seat. This allows more room for the
person sitting behind the front passenger. TVR have referred to
this as a '3+1' design. TVR maintained its tradition of building
cars that were not only exceptionally powerful but also very light
for their size and power output. Like all TVRs of the Peter Wheeler
era. the Cerbera had a long-travel throttle to compensate for the
lack of electronic traction-control and very sharp steering. Prior
to the Cerbera. TVR had purchased V8 engines from Rover and then
tuned them for their own use. When Rover was purchased by BMW. the
chairman of TVR. Peter Wheeler. didn't want to risk problems should
the Germans decide to stop manufacturing the engine. In response. br/>he engaged the services of race engineer Al Melling to design a V8
engine that TVR could manufacture in-house and even potentially
offer for sale to other car-makers. In an interview for the
television programme Top Gear. Wheeler explained. "Basically. we
designed the engine as a race engine. It was my idea at the time
that if we wanted to expand. we ought to make something that we
could sell to other people. We've ended up with a 75-degree V8 with
a flat-plane crank. The bottom-half of the engine to the heads is
exactly as you would see in a current Formula One
engine. "

This vendor of this red with tan Cerbera has decided to find a
new owner to fully appreciate his pride and joy. Supplied with a V5
registration document and a current MoT test certificate and some
degree of service history. this 3996cc straight-six engined example
presents in good order. Without doubt. TVR's are classified as some
of the most stylish sports cars in the modern era. The pure thrill
of owning such a car as this cannot be over-stated; the noise from
the exhaust is music to the ears and it is certainly priced to
