The Cerbera was manufactured by TVR between 1996 and 2003 and was the first model to have been powered by engines made by TVR themselves, previous models had used engines made by other manufaturers e.g. Rover, Ford and Triumph.

Great capture and super image. Where was this shot?
Thanks Mattie. Taken just down the road at Castle Combe!
Great shot Paul! Is the wheelbase as long as it appears in this shot, or is it the lens you used? It must have a tremendously smooth ride! I’m familiar with Castle Combe because I read about a local London MINI club that sponsored a drive that took them through Castle Combe. I would give anything to bring mine over there, albeit a L.H.D. MINI. L.O.L.
Hi Steve. The Cerbera has actually got quite a long wheelbase – it’s a 2+2, so there’s a couple of kiddie-sized seats in the back! The first model was fitted with a 4.2 L V8 engine producing 360 horsepower, but the later 4.5 L V8 produced an astonishing 420 horsepower!
The noise,Paul, you haven’t mentioned the noise! Great car, nicely captured.
Ah yes – the noise! I’ve heard the sound of a flat-plane crank V8 being described as sounding like a dustbin full of scrap metal being rolled down the road! Not true – any TVR sounds great IMO!
Thanks for the kind comment Willie.
Thanks Paul! You certainly do know your TVR’S. I was under the impression it had an in-line six. I’ll bet that does sound wicked! Thanks for all the great info!
You’re welcome Steve!
