    I like the 350 but the 350t looks weird......that targa top thing just isn't working! If they need the pillars for support then why even offer the targa? A large sunroof would have worked better. Oh well TVR's are still nice cars.

    Have you check out the Noble M12....I like that car and you can get one in the states too! I drove one and man o man is that thing fast! However handling is its strongest side.

    Very cool car......I drove one state-side(USA) and I'm still impressed with how fast the car is. Compared to a 996 tt it felt so much better.......same compliant suspension but man it just communicated everything back so well. Also it feels 10 times faster......maybe it is just the whoosh noise behind your ears.

    I try to find every video I can, but they aren't the easiest from over here haha

    Which TVR did you drive? I am jealous. Did you drive a left hand or right hand version? Was it hard to read the speedometer?

    ohh sorry I drove the Noble M12 GTO-3 www.1gracing.com

    The Noble was left hand drive as they are importing them now (minus drivetrain). Everything was very easy to see/use. Here is a picture of what the car looks like.

    TVR needs to hire a new design team.

    My personal fave of the newer TVR lineup is the Sagaris. I hope with the new owner the build quality improves and they eventually return to the US.

    The build quality of the later TVR was not that bad, not in the BMW class, but for a small team who handbuild them IMO pretty impressive, i recall reading somewhere that there were plans to bring TVR to the USA, lets see what the new owner can do.

    What is wrong with it, what would you redesign, IMO TVR's are amongst the best looking cars on the road.
