Australian Monaro Now British TVR

OK, I guess from the forum that all of us are in love with our Aussie imports, but I understand from the press that the UK sports car manufacturer of whipass sportscars called TVR have recently got new owners and are looking to start to import to North America. Taking a look at their latest offering, the TVR Sagaris, I will be trading in my Goat for this MONSTER if it ever lands here!!!
It is 0-60 in 3.6 and does the quarter in a little over 9. it is 400BHP from a V6 and tops 215mph.

I have a link for the video here (Quicktime)

Tvr

You might note the car is around $100,000 U.S. and is unlikely to meet US Spec or be crash tested in it's current form.

Yes $100,000 but I know the crash test got a 4 star rating and if the new owners are saying they intend to import into North America, then I guess they are working on this.

A Russian kid bought the company. Although they're talking big right now, there is some doubt about whether any of this will actually come to fruition. Neat car. Would hate to drop 100 large on something -- only to have the company fold.
