Unfortunately the Speed 12 never made it into full production and has been superceded by the Cerbera Speed 12, but there were a couple made. It just sat around the factory in Blackpool doing nothing!

I think Keith Flint from the Prodigy has one!!!

The Speed 12 Actually Broke the Dyno (roling road thingy) and just before it did it Read Just over 1000BHP

To be fair it must have been a pritty crap rolling road becasue they have recorded power of weel over 1000bhp, using cars with turbo charged engines, and with the extra instant rush they give off, that must have far more strain on the dyno.

If you get my drift. But yes one very sexy motor. You can actually buy them still, but wheeler advises customers not to buy them becasue he actually considers them dangerous. He dosent mind puttin ghtme in a showroom, but not as a road car.

Still there are cars which produce more than 649lbs which must have been recorded on the rolling road??? beerchug.gif

Yeah, but the 600 or so ft/lbs was the figure associated with the 800 hp, so I'd assume if they got over 200 extra hp, then they'd have a few more ft/lbs of torque as well jump.gif

17mm of throttle travel = near whiplash jump.gif 18mm of throttle travel = disipearing into the tyre smoke in the direction you just came from FIREdevil.gif

Was a gig put on by a UK magazine @ Thruxton (circuit).

Did the slalom first, then practiced emergency braking in Chryler Neons (Neon's bend when exiting the Karussel at the Nurburgring). Then some lapping, again in the Neons followed by a number of laps in either the VV or GTS (miserly 430bhp +/-) notworthy.gif

Lagoo, I think you may have set a record, this thread says it has had 14000 views!! I googled 'TVR Cerbera Speed 12' and we are on the first page, perhaps an explanation.

Oh, almost forgot, what a beast! Completely useless on the road, and for any track smaller than Silverstone for that matter too! Excellent PR for TVR no doubt.
