Other TVRs had looked good and performed strongly but the Cerbera was different. For the first time here was a TVR with its own bespoke engine. This was in the form of a 4.2 liter V8 packing a 350bhp punch, the promise of 185mph and scorching acceleration. Best of all, this came for the price of an ordinary executive saloon. Engine apart, the Cerbera was mostly traditional TVR, the GRP body covering tubular space frame. It was a fixed head only though, with an imaginative 2+2 interior that showed amazingly little evidence of the parts- bin plundering so typical of this type of low volume car. The engine had flat plane crank that gave it much busier, less brutal engine note than the Rover engined cars. Low down it wasn’t as torquey either, but a light flywheel allowed pin sharp pick up for devastating through the gears acceleration. The Cerbera was renowned for the way it could demonstrate its power.
It has an engine of V8, with 4185 cc with the total amount of power 350 bhp. It could accelerate up to 100mph (162km/h) in 9 seconds beating speed. In 2004 long term owner Peter Wheeler sold TVR to a young Russian businessman Nikolay Smolensky. However, by 2006 TVR production had slowed to a crawl and stopped all together by the end of the year.
