Land Rover had continued to update the original 1948 model from inception, and the Series III was the culmination of nearly thirty years of development and improvements. For the first time, they sought a new buyer demographic, amongst leisure users. The Series III had the same body and engine options as the preceding IIA and was little changed cosmetically from the IIA to the Series III, however, the III is the most common with 440,000 of the type built from 1971 to 1985.;The headlights were moved to the wings on late production IIA models from 1968/9 onward (ostensibly to comply with Australian, American and Dutch lighting regulations) and remained in this position for the Series III. The traditional metal grille, featured on the Series I, II and IIA, was replaced with a plastic one for the Series III model. The 2.25-litre engine had its compression raised from 7:1 to 8:1 increasing the power slightly although the high compression engine had been an optional fit on the IIa model for several years, During the Series III production run between 1971 and 1985, the 1,000,000th Land Rover rolled off the line in 1976.;First registered on 19th March 1973, this Series III Land Rover has had, incredibly, just one owner from new. Having been supplied initially by Land Rover dealer, MJ Fews, this Series III has been enjoyed by the same gentleman for all 43 years of its life and is in very original condition, even down to the original radio. It has a beautiful patina both inside and out, and we are told the engine and gearbox all run smoothly. It has retained the original 'wing mounted' mirrors, however, more modern mirrors and an extra brake light have been added to assist with modern driving conditions. All the panels seem true, but there is evidence of occasional brushes with the scenery, which is, as I understand it, is exactly what Land Rovers are for! The removable hard-top is easily switchable with a canvas rag-top. Past MOTs and an invoice going back to 1997, show that this Series III has done less than 3,000 miles in the last 20 years, making this a remarkable vehicle. Cosmetically, there is a bit to go at, but that shouldn't matter. She is a bit like your favourite Granny; no longer wearing her 'Sunday Best' but totally reliable and always pleased to see you. One to keep.
Just had a GBP 6000 full engine rebuild at TVR POWER, and comes with a 3 year unlimited miles and transferable warranty. ;;A true collectors car with only 10,000 miles from new.;;This stunning facelift 2002 TVR Speed Six Cerbera is finished in the amazing Swordfish paint scheme 'Chameleon Blue' with black interior. The condition is outstanding and pretty much a one off. We don't feel you will find another. ;;Sourced directly from Japan and imported into the UK in 2015, This TVR is a GRADE 4.5 B vehicle. This is one of the highest possible grades available for a vehicle of this age. Totally original throughout. A truly exceptional vehicle. Mileage is also very low and displayed on government condition sheets. 15,491 KM or 9,625 Miles. ;;The Cerbera: ;;The car itself was designed from the start as a four-seater. The rear seats are smaller than the front, a design commonly referred to as a "2+2". However, the interior is designed so that the passenger seat can slide farther forward than the driver's seat. This allows more room for the person sitting behind the front passenger. TVR have referred to this as a "3+1" design.;;TVR maintained its tradition of building cars that were not only exceptionally powerful but also very light for their size and power output. The Cerbera's weight was quoted by TVR at 1100 kilograms, although customers claimed the weight varied between 1,060 kg (2,337 lb) and 1,200 kg (2,646 lb).;;The dashboard was designed especially for the Cerbera and uses a two-spar steering wheel as opposed to the typical three-spar previously found in most TVRs. The reason for this is that minor instruments are located on a small panel below the steering wheel and a third spar in the wheel would have made them difficult to read.;;Like all TVRs of the Peter Wheeler era, the Cerbera had a long-travel throttle to compensate for the lack of electronic traction-control and very sharp steering. The V8 powered cars were two turns from lock to lock and the Speed Six car was 2.4 turns. This made it easier for experienced drivers to maintain or regain control of the car in the event of a loss of traction but some less experienced drivers complained that it made the cars feel "twitchy" and more responsive than they would otherwise have preferred.;;In 2000, TVR changed the styling of the car slightly by modifying the headlights to more closely resemble those seen in the TVR Tuscan. The "facelift" features were available with all three engine configurations. In addition, the cars equipped with the 4.5 liter engine were offered with the "lightweight" option, reducing the overall weight through the use of lighter body panels and a slightly reworked interior. ;;The Cerbera, even a decade after it first appeared is still an arresting sight. Curvy and low slung, one of the Cerbera’s great surprises is discovering the interior space with its occasional rear bucket seats. The Cerbera differs from a normal 2+2 in that its seating arrangement may be better described as a 3+1. The front passenger seat is able to slide further forward, freeing a substantial amount of extra legroom for a rear passenger. The long doors make rear access far easier than you might expect. The most remarkable part of the interior is the dashboard – it is like no other car. All the instruments are right in front of the driver. A secondary binnacle, mounted with the steering wheel on an adjustable column, houses the clock, the fuel gauge, a fresh air vent and the engine start/stop buttons. Steering wheel-mounted buttons operate main beam, windscreen washers/wipers, and the horn. The Cerbera range comprises three models. The 4.0LITRE Cerbera Speed Six has softer suspension and higher profile tyres to give a more comfortable ride and less road noise. Its focus is grand touring and its personality is like a modern rendition of the Great British G T cars of the 1960s. The Cerbera 4.2 is ‘the original’, the barn-storming gatecrasher that rocked the supercar establishment ten years ago. Much developed over the years it exists for those who demand a V8 just a little milder than the visceral Cerbera 4.5. If the Speed Six is reminiscent of charismatic 1960s GTs, then the 4.5 is most reminiscent of Cold War jet fighters. There is nothing else ground-bound quite like it. Its 420BHP punch is backed up by 380LB.FT of tarmac-rippling torque and it dismisses 60MPH in 3.9SECS, 100 in 8.1 and 150 in 17.9. The 4.5 embarrasses those with more cash than car knowledge – it is a serious motor car, one of the fastest in existence. Modified suspension and larger wheels and tyres to cover bigger brakes complete its armoury – the descent from 100MPH in just 3.8SECS." Source: TVR Press Information. TVR Website November 2005
