Apparently, there are still a few souls stirring at the TVR plant in Blackpool and word is that they'll be producing 60 limited edition Sagaris' in the next six to eight months.

The T440R based coupe will benefit from the addition of a supercharger to its 400 hp, 4-liter, straight six and will be renamed the Typhoon. More power is all well and good, but considering TVR's reputation for, shall we say, "quirky" driving characteristics, it should be interesting to see how this revised TVR will handle the additional horses.

The announcement was accompanied with news that the Russian owned, British marque will campaign a Cerebra at LeMans in 2007 and will debut the race-prepped vehicle in Geneva this March. Additionally, plans are in the works to bring several vehicles to market within the next few years that have the potential of meeting both European and American emissions standards.

As Hemmings' Blog pointed out, TVR produced a left-hand drive version of the Sagaris for the European market, so the concept is there. We'll just have to wait and see.

Since most of us on this side of the Atlantic have rarely seen a TVR in action, we embedded a clip of Clarkson in the Sagaris after the jump. Enjoy!

      Its really unfortunate that the only way one can get one of these in NA is to buy it overseas, take it apart, ship it to NA, and reassemble it. The American EPA & DOT need to provide allowances for short sales of vehicles and allow adults to be adults and not have mother government trying to protect the world from the idiots at large.

      I'm pretty sure there were plenty of comparisons between the TVR and the Competizione either on this forum or others, but not on performance or market segments, only on styling.

      they have never made a decent looking car, adn all of their cars look like they are off a prototype shop body panels.

      I can't see the connection between TVR and the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. The Competizione looks so much better than any TVR I've seen.

      This TVR shown here doesn't look like a kit. I'm afraid it reminds me of a ribbed condom. :)

      Leo, lots of people care about TVRs. They look fantastic, sound fantastic, and feel fantastic to drive. Not that you'd know though, eh.... ;-)

      Be a shame to see them go.
