    BTW, evo's "test" was done on the preproduction Cerbera Speed 12. They didn't even instrument test it either (they rarely do instrumented testing, other than the occasional comparo).

    i posted this on another forum, but is seems to go perfectly in responce.

    the viper 800tt could beat the TVR at the drag strip
    venom 800 0-60<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>bout 3 seconds on REGULAR street tires
    TVR 0-60:3.5

    and at the track, i think the venoms' 75mph slalom, 60-0 braking in 110ft, and 1.05g's on the skidpad by far beats whatever the TVR does or will ever do on a track.

    The TVR's did not kick the ass of the Vipers at LeMans either. They lost, lost big time and then withdrew. The Vipers won LeMans 4 years straight, sometimes taking all the top positions.

    The TVR's are a dream, the Vipers are the reality. The TVR's can go to LeMans any time they want but they haven't because they have had their ass kicked time and again. Keep dreaming.

    i know u all heard this before but...
    i see alot more Vipers on the road then most other supercars...
    i've seen Ferrariss, Lambo's, Auston Marton's, Alfa Romao's, ect...
    Vipers, Supra's, Honda & Nissan supercars are all over the place...
    but come to think of it...
    i don't think i've ever seen a TVR on he road...
    seen 'em in the shops...but not on the road...

    i assume you're an american living in america, but i live in england and i see quite a few tvrs around. if anyone reading this has ever seen a tuscan in the flesh with the colour-changing paint, then you know what i'm talking about.

    and, mr viper 1426, i've read lots of different sources on the speed 12, and some say 3.5 secs 0-60, and some say 3 seconds. does anyone else have any proper stats (the evo test sounds a bit suspect)

    All I have to say about this thread is ROFLMAO! Not again!

    Uh, aren't you from the UK? I thought you'd have this by now. I've only asked for it 2-3 times already.
    Hint: there are no documented instrumented road tests of the production Cerbera Speed 12. Kinda curious, since Ben Samuelson once said they'd had 12 firm orders for the car.
     
  12. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    oh yes, that's right. so, because i'm english, living in england, i automatically know the director of tvr and all of the people who have tested the speed 12. hmm, good logic there. and please, din't call me british or say that im from the uk. that implies i am "in league" with wales. if you dislike canada you know what i mean.

    also, were there no speed 12s actually sold? cause that would suck.
     
  13. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    No, living in England means you'd have VASTLY more resources to go with than someone on the other side of the globe. I'm calling upon you and your resources to find this information, if indeed it exists.

    I'm sorry, is England NOT in the UK? My bad. I've not been to Wales, but I'm pretty sure they generally have a better understanding (and access to information) of TVR's than us folk here in America, no?

    The consensus from various places is that TVR built only 2 or 3 of the Cerbera Speed 12's. One went to Japan, for racing purposes. The other (or 3rd one, here's where it gets tricky) is currently in the employ of TVR, used primarily for the motor shows. It may be road registered, but probably not by a private customer. And it's been repainted at least once.
    The Cerbera Speed 12 is listed in the company's literature, as an available car built to order. Why no one has ordered such a car and taken delivery is beyond me. They'd have bragging rights throughout the continent (if indeed it lives up to its power claims).
     
  14. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    OK, so now the TVR can supposedly do 0-60:3seconds.
    but like i wrote before, the viper800 on REGULAR street tires could do 0-60:3seconds.
    so, on one hand, you have a TVR w/a V-12 and costs about $240,000
    or you have the viper800 w/a V-10TT and costs about $165,000.
    also, keep in mind that the viper's turbos only run 6psi, and that the viper weighs about 1000lbs. more than a TVR, and is still able to beat it!
     
  15. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    thanks for the info. your logic does make sense, but strangely enough i can find no info on it. even top gear (quite a major magazine and tv programme in england) seems to have nothing.

    and its my bad for confusing you. england is in the uk, but scotland and wales just leech of england. scotland even has its own parliament, but england doesn't. bloody jocks....
     
  16. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    touché.

    i still prefer the tvr. it just has morew appeal to me, and i prefer the overall package. besides, if i ever am rich, i'll probably end up with a sooped skyline or summat. just my own opinion, and i respect yours.
     
  17. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

  20. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    soz for the insult. i cant really rember but i think i was tallkin to viper. cant remember now though...
     
  21. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    IŽll choose the speed 12, because it is the standart model (yes, they made only 3 or 4, but still is the standart) and the viper was tuned to get that power, and the 2.6? 0-60mph was made using slick tires. But really really, i couldnŽt pay for any on those cars... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  22. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    mate u got a betta chance at gettin' a Merc CLK GTR.
     
  23. Re: VENOM 800 TT OR TVR CEREBRA SPEED 12

    Pardon me but the Viper did 0-60 in 2.4 sec.. Not 2.6. With skick it had. But what do you think the speed 12 would do with slicks. They clame its top speed is 240. Ive even heard 240+. I would personally pick the Viper. Its my favorite car. But, if I had the money$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, I would have a butt full of cars. I would die a happy man if I had ether car.
