    ...and the most exclusive, since there's currently only one in existence. The TVR Cerbera Speed 12. Those of you who've played some of the Gran Turismo games have probably seen this car in those games (it's in Forza 3 as well).

    Video taken from inside the car, listen to the fucking sound this thing makes! :bowdown:

    No embedding on this vid, unfortunately. Car sounds start at about 1:05

    Cliffs: TVR makes supercar, owner of the company decides it's too powerful to sell as a road car. Several years later they decide to complete one of the cars and sell it to an auto enthusiast deemed worthy of owning it.

    Viper Enhanced...I'm hating some of the body lines though.

    It's ugly and beautiful at the same time. Yeah, the first time I saw one it reminded me of a Viper too. But it's actually sticking pretty close to the traditional TVR styling cues.

    And this car would eat a Viper for breakfast. :o

    The Shelby Cobra 427 is truly a legendary car. But there's no comparison performance-wise here (not that it's fair to compare a car made in the '60s to a modern supercar anyway).


    The point of the Speed 12 had nothing to do with it's looks anyway, though I think it grows on you after awhile. I though it was strange looking the first time I saw it. But I think it's pretty damn cool now. Knowing the car's history and uniqueness might have something to do with that. :o

    How so? The 427 AC Cobra was most definitely considered a supercar in the 60s.

    Yeah, see what I mean? That style is just kind of the classic TVR "look". It wasn't actually imitating the Viper. :o

    If you haven't watched the video yet, do it. The sound of the thing is incredible.
