The TVR name is derived from 'Cerberus', the three-headed beast of Greek legend that guarded the entrance of Hades. The car itself was designed from the start as a four-seater, 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. 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. Prior to the Cerbera, TVR had purchased V8 engines from Rover and then tuned them for their own use. When Rover was purchased by BMW, the chairman of TVR, Peter Wheeler, didn't want to risk problems should the Germans decide to stop manufacturing the engine. In response, he engaged the services of race engineer, Al Melling, to design a V8 engine that TVR could manufacture in-house and even potentially offer for sale to other car-makers. In an interview for the television programme Top Gear, Wheeler explained, 'Basically, we designed the engine as a race engine. It was my idea at the time that if we wanted to expand, we ought

We are thrilled to offer this rare and fast appreciating 1997 TVR Cerbera 4.5 V8 Coupe.

It has never been anything less than a cherished collectors TVR and has never got into 'the wrong hands' or been driven in the wet. The last owner a retired gentleman who owned the vehicle from approx 2003 had it kept in a heated, carpeted garage at his house and signed a note to say the car had never been taken out in the wet. Since then the car has undergone an entire overhaul so whereas many Cerberas for sale may be a time bomb waiting to happen, this one is still running in, is fully restored in as new condition and ready to enjoy. I can honestly say you will not find a better example on the market, it really does need to been seen to appreciate how good this Cerbera is and it is definitely one for the investors.
Currently undergoing a 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 face lift 2002 TVR Speed Six Cerbera is finished in the amazing Swordfish paint scheme 'Chameleon Blue' with black leather interior. The condition is outstanding and a true one off. We don't feel you will find another. ;;;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
