Despite recent ruminations over the future of TVR, the British supercar builder is planning to produce one final Cerbera for old time's sake. Introduced in 1996, the Cerbera went out of production in 2004 to make way for the Sagaris, Tuscan and Tuscan Targa.

The final Cerbera will be built to specifications dictated by TVR’s current CEO and owner, Nikolai Smolenski, who purchased the company in 2004 from Peter Wheeler under whose tenure the Cerbera in all its iterations was enjoyed. Speculation has already arisen that the phoenix-like rise of the Cerbera is Smolenski’s homage to Wheeler’s era, a time during which the company wasn’t laying off workers and relocating.

The car will feature TVR’s lauded 4.5L AJPV8 and be put up for auction in a few weeks. Some of the proceeds will be donated to a charity, the rest will likely pay the movers.

      CEO's specifications?

      So given their current state that'd be as cheap as it possibly can be done?

      Too bad it's sad to see such a bold company in trouble.

      Actually, since the new CEO is in charge, the cars have to go through an extensive test program to ensure their reliability. TVR's may not have the quality of a Porsche, but to my knowledge, the new CEO has improved things quite a lot.

      Straight from the Pages of Wikipedia:
      "TVR made and tested a 7.7 L V12 called the Speed Twelve, reportedly making 1000+ BHP naturally aspirated, but the project was scrapped after the car it was designed for was deemed too powerful for practical use."

      *sigh*...TVRs would be so well-suited to driving in the US...
