    Just had a quick look/listen to the engine /exhaust note of these on YouTube. What a gloriously addictive sound with the odd pop on lifting off. Definitely worthy of a tunnel run! Well wear 😎

    Funnily enough there is a carbon monoxide alarm in the garage as the gas boiler for the central heating lives in there too. I could start my GT6 and let her idle a bit and then take her out (with the door open of course). I never thought anything of it. But with the TVR, the alarm goes off after about 15 seconds!
    When it first happened I was thinking "WTF is that noise?? Don't tell be the car alarm is acting up?!?!?"
    I hope Eamon Ryan isn't living nearby....😉

    the temptation to go out there and fire it up very often will be over powering

    Maybe you could bless against break downs too?!


    Just messing about with the phone, but I think that the phone mic doesn't capture the full sound.

    Cold Start


    This has been a long time coming!

    Ah, fair dues, we all say the magic words, TVR, but you actually did it! Well done sir. The GT 6 was a gem, but sometimes you just have to move on, and what a brilliant choice!
    Thanks Cappo! Still alot of unknowns and learning, so time will tell if I made the right choice. But for the last few decades I always said, I would love a TVR. And so....

    Thanks Kaiser. My SX is my baby, she won't be going anywhere. You are welcome to call in.
