TVR Tuscans were manufactured in Blackpool in the UK from 1999 - 2006

This 2001 model will have been available with either 360 or 380 hp variation of a 3996 cc / 243 cui straight six engine.

The sinuous fibreglass body fits over a tubular steel chassis.

TVR's then Chairman Peter Wheeler was quite adamant that TVR's were safer without airbags, particularly in convertibles arguing that if somebody were to die in one of his cars as a result of an airbag he 'would not be able to live with himself'.

My thanks to the Pistonhead who brought this Tuscan along to the Sunday Service at the BMW plant back in January.

Hope you have enjoyed today's dark & sinuous edition of 'Gettin' a lil' psycho on tyres', and that you will join me again tomorrow. Don't forget to come back now !
