The new TVR Sagaris will be seen for the first time ever at Earls Court on the 11 December as part of the 2003 British Motor Show. The boutique UK engineering firm have a long-standing tradition of launching a new car at every Show and this year's offering is a 400 bhp motorsport design based on the T350.
The styling of the Sagaris is a direct result of the rigorous demands of the endurance motorsport arena. It has a wider track than the T350 for greater grip and stability and is propelled by the mighty 400 bhp TVR Straight Six engine from the Tuscan S.
With an emphasis on lightweight carbonfibre inside, the Sagaris represents the latest in TVR's thinking on the road racer theme.
