TVR Cerbera returns for final curtain call
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.
