It?s still here, and it?s more enjoyable than ever...

It was with a sense of resigned sadness that we absorbed the news of TVR?s closure. The writing had been on the wall for months, we said. Job losses, management changes, falling sales and a mysterious owner with uncertain motives all pointed to a sad but inevitable end to Britain?s most exciting and nonconformist car maker.

Then we had more news. Apparently TVR?s death had been greatly exaggerated, and though production at the factory in Blackpool had ceased, the company would live on, with production shifted to Italy and engines developed by a highly regarded British specialist to comply with Euro V legislation. While still extremely sad for those facing redundancy in Blackpool, solace could be taken from the bigger picture: TVR would live on.

By sheer coincidence, in the midst of this tumult we had a Sagaris booked in for assessment. At first we thought it would be cancelled, but no, the car would be delivered so that we could see the direction in which TVR was heading. And no, it wasn?t sideways for the nearest apex.
The rest of this road test can be read here...

Oh god I want one. Reminds why TVR needs an understanding buyer - we need raw cars like this.

The Sagaris is actually the first TVR that has huge appeal to me... Its sexy!
 
The only thing that bothered me, the sidway exhausts, disapeared!! This is now one of my absolutely favourite cars!!
 
I actually like this Sagaris than the old one, the sideways exhaust just didn't look right, it looked liked it was going to fall off any minute.

Plus I have no problem with the wheels. If only they sell it in US and I had the money.

The exhaust gave the rear character.
 
I miss the wacky sideways exhaust, it said to drivers 'this car is not for the conventional or weak'.
