Facts about the model

The V6 produced a great deal of torque, giving extremely good mid-range performance; 30-50 mph in top took 6.6 seconds. The standard Taimar's 3 litre engine output was significantly boosted by the turbo, up by nearly 100bhp - which bought supercar acceleration to the TVR with a standing start to 60mph covered in under 6 seconds. Just 63 examples of this landmark car were ever produced. Throughout the life of TVR the cars were improved, and the Taimar could be said to handle quite well on dry roads, although it did become skittish in the wet, and the ride was not as excessively firm as in bygone TVRs.
