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

There's this Tuscan in a Garage a couples of miles from my house...want to take it for a test drive...but too scared... http://www.ggsteel.co.uk/
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!
I really really want a TVR.........
For me would have to be the Tuscan.
TVR Chimera's are down to sensible money now!!
Cerbera speed 6
looks the DB,s sounds awesome
lets face TVR havent, got the best relibilty record
and how many people use these cars for everyday use? maybe only a small %
they a top fun car
this is the only non GM car i would own
I LOVE TVR's .. Always have and always will ..... my mates had two .. the later being the cerbera 4.2 360 bhp 6 cylinder monster 0-6- in 4.4 secs .... bloooooody ell it was quick !!!!
but you do have to have a bottomless pocket to run one .... clutch replacement £4000 ish
but they do hold thier value .... which does make a difference !!! especially compared to a veccy c
