    chalk and cheese really. If you want a lightwieght sharp handling car with a porsche equalling performance, from a raspy 6 cylinder, choose the tuscan. If you want a big V8 to take on the likes of a DB9, then the cerbera is the weapon of choice.

    Personally, i'd choose the cerbera as i have more chance of getting the pram in the boot

    And just in case you wanted one, heres a TVR approved used one for less than vectra VXR money

    every car has it faults

    At least with a cerbera you get a free 12" Pen!s (why is P E N I S blocked out? lol) extension and a young bird who only loves you for your car

    The web page that was from hasn't been updated for a few years. The owner probably pushed it off a cliff and bought a Skoda Estelle with the insurance money!
