TVR Cerbera 4.5 V8. So why is this specific Cerbera so beautiful? Well, the first three owners kept the car in such good condition it fully matched the requirements of the fourth owner. He is a TVRaholic who was looking for a Cerbera to return - as close as is possible - to As New Condition. The car had covered just over 44,000 miles when the MD of a specialist General Motors Dealership (so, a well qualified and experienced judge of automotive machinery) purchased the car in August 2012.

The following month the engine was removed from the car and transported over 300 miles to Str8six - a company he already knew well. Here it was fully stripped and confirmed to be a factory built 4.5 litre with 4.2 throttle bodies - as with many late model Cerbera engines.

A full rebuild was then instigated. The cylinder liners were checked for ovality and machine honed. The crankshaft was polished. The block and all covers were bead blasted and the covers powder-coated. Every gasket, ring, chain, bearing and seal was replaced. The cylinder heads were fully reworked and the valve seats were cut to suit three angles before being the heads were rebuilt and valves clearances adjusted. The perfect 4.5 litre specification engine was then returned for re-installation at an appropriate stage of the car's total overhaul.

The next two years witnessed the full body off restoration of this car, including preventative attention to the chassis, comprehensive suspension renewal, and full differential, and gearbox bush and bracket renewal. And to finish the presentation to the requisite standard, the bodywork was fully repainted and the trim was addressed by masters of these specialist arts.

Naturally enough the owner - knowing the importance of original provenance - did not change the car's exterior colour nor its interior trim colour. And so it is, as the photographs confirm, that this car is resplendent in TVR OE Imperial blue with cream half hide upholstery and navy carpeting. And of course, it runs on 18 inch OE silver Spider alloys.

Str8six will supply this superb car fully prepared, with the balance of a 12,000 mile service, 12 months MOT, 12 months Tax and a Full, No Quibble 12 months/12,000 miles WEAR and TEAR WARRANTY, which covers PARTS and LABOUR on the whole car. The car will be equipped with a 12 volt battery charger and a set of jump leads. It will also be provided with its own bespoke interior car cover.

There are some other persuasive factors to consider, which relate to the performance of the Cerbera model - TVR's first 2+2 Sportscar, manufactured from 1996 to 2003 - and equipped with TVR's first in house engine. As you know, early examples were built with a 4.2 Litre 75 degree flat plane crank V8 - then offering one of the highest specific outputs of any naturally irated V8 at 83.3 hp/litre. The 4.5 litre V8 engine, as fitted to this car, lifted that to 93.3 hp/litre!

This 4.5 litre engine delivers 360bhp at 6,500 RPM and develops 320lb-ft at 4,500 rpm. This gives the car a 0-60 sprint time of 4.2 secs and a top speed of 185 mph. Fuel consumption figures lie between 16 - 24 mpg. If you are brave enough to exploit the engine's full throttle power above 4,000 RPM you will discover why some say that a Cerbera V8 engine is savage.
