TVR production continues, we hope

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!
