So, I finally bought my... TVR

Discussion in 'European Cars' started by G1zm0, Mar 25, 2011.

  1. I like the T350 more than the Sagaris... o_O
  2. well, i have to agree with u, it is the closest TVR to the world "refined".
  3. I can't compete with the GTR, my tuscan S if from 2002, the paint and interior isn't brand new and not very mint anymore... I've been pretty busy these days so I'll post and take pictures when I can, maybe not this weekend <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    Promise though, as soon as I get it all washed and waxed I'll take my little camera out for all ya !
  4. best car on nowadays :-D
  5. that was exactly the other car i was thinking
  6. This X 10

    extremely jealous here, wish we could import them to Canada..
  7. Congratulations on the purchase !

    Now, may God help you with your car (I also own a british car)
  8. you can as soon as their 15 years old. I have a customer that collects TVRs.
  9. Its a shame its so difficult to import them to the US and Canada, so much money could be made if you imported them <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  10. I've been looking into it. only problem is if you import the newer ones you can only have them as racecars and they can only be transfered on bill of sale. which makes them kind of useless once the 15 year rule kicks in.
  11. Congtars, and love the color!
  12. Awesome stuff. I nearly bought one and imported it a few years ago.

    Glad you had taste and went a Tuscan too.
  13. Why can you only have them as racecars ?
    How can you make a Tuscan street legal ? In france, it has to meet european standards on a few points, such as noise level and things like seat belt need to have the EU stamp on it etc...

    It requires a few modifications but it shouldn't cost me more then 5000€.

    I'm guessing you guys have the same criteria, more or less, for registration
  14. for it to be registered without modification you have to wait the 15 years.

    you don't have to modify it to say its a race car so thats how most people get them in the country (that customer that collects TVRs has a Tuscan and a Sagaris). to make them road legal without waiting you'd have to buy 2 and crash test 1. if it doesn't pass you'd have to buy another, modify it, and crash it again then make all the neccesary changes to the car you actually want to drive.
  15. Damn that really sux <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A> I thought it was because of emission problems or some easy thing to modify but I guess I was wrong <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
    TVR never crash-tested their car its a shame... In 4 years it will be possible to import the earlier Tuscan models !! Yeay !! By then TVR will have made its come back hopefully ...
  16. over here its more the crash testing. the emission issue can be delt with but redesigning the front and rear of the car is a bit more of a pain in the ass.
  17. cant wait for like 2020, when I can move to canada for my sagaris.
  18. You'll get health care. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
  19. Awesome car, perfect color
  20. Congratulations!! <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  21. #$%#ing bumper laws eh
  22. they're ****s like that.
  23. Wow congratulations man!

    I can only dream of ever owning a car like that, or anything interesting. Cars here are incredibly expensive. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
