The TVR Tuscan is a British made very popular supercar, originally available in five different inline six englines and a variety of trims.
The Tuscan, one of TVRs first very successful cars after the companys rebirth in the sixties included the first model, the Tuscan V8, produced in the UK and mainly selling in the US. Only 28 were built. Other early models included a modified wheel base 90-inch Tuscan V-8 SE version which was built in 67-68. Only 24 of these were built. A V-6 136 bhp version was made during 69-71 and only 101 were sold. While various limited edition Tuscan models are available as collectors items it was with the major revival of TVRs fortunes in the nineties that the Tuscan brand became firmly established. The Speed Six engine, like the Speed Eight, which first appeared in the groundbreaking high performance Cerbera was also used to great effect in the Tuscan Speed Six. Recent Tuscan models are capable of 0 to 60mph in 3.7sec and Current Tuscan models, as of 2007, include the 380 bhp four-litre engine aimed at the most sporting drivers. These include a motor sport derived aerodynamic package. The Tuscan S version rockets to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. The TVR Tuscan falls into insurance group 20, the most expensive.
With the newest development of the same straight six engine that propelled TVR to strong finishes in the 24 hour Le Mans race, the Tuscan out-performs most competition, while suspension, geometry, chassis and steering developments make it easier to drive. [B] [B]
Every curve of the body of the Tuscan serves a practical purpose, claim the manufacturers. The outlets in the bonnet serve as low pressure exits for the hot air from the radiator. The gurney above the boot lid and the splitter under the front grille jointly create down force over both axles. The low lip cuts through the air to help the Tuscan sports cars reach its full potential. The range topper, the Tuscan S features a 380 bhp four-litre engine.
The 2007 Tuscan is available in convertible form, a luxury car with breathtaking performance and top-down sports car exhilaration. TVR completely redesigned it as an original convertible rather than simply a coupe with roof taken off. Includes remodelled new interior, an elegant and super classic form, and all conquering engine.
