what colour is Hell Red?

28 posts in this topic

Hi all,

i have found a cerbera i'm interested in buying - it's 'Hell Red' - is that a bright red - i'm after a very bright red like that of my morgan - like a bright ferrari red - is this the right colour? Does anyone know of any others for sale with black or grey leather?

Kind Regards,

Mike Burgess

Hi Mike,

Welcome to Tyresmoke!! The problem with TVR is that they dont have as such have specific colours for the models. Basically if you see a colour you can have it!! A hell red i would assume is a very deep metallic red, but i cant say that i have seen a cerbera in that so looks like you might have quite a rare colour there!!!

Got any pics of your morgan to get an idea of what colour exactly?

that's nice - do you have a URL for it, details etc? Magnolia would do if we can't find black or grey - just this black leather one sounds amazing - what colour is that red then lagoo?

You into golfs too? It has a wing vent too now

Morning all,

god do i feel tired.....

found out this Hell Red is EXACTLY the colour i want - so looking at in on the weekend - it's a 4.2, think it's an R-reg

Recently had £5k spent on it including a new clutch, which is good news - what else do i need to look for? I don't want to end up with a £20k paper-weight!!!! It's had a recent service, FTVRSH etc

Cheers guys!

Mike

Morning...

Get some pics up when you can would like to know what colour it is!!!

as for tips.. whats the milage on the car? Have a good look underneath at the chasis check for corrosion. Having a new clutch is a good thing. Oh and a warranty is a must!! Cant say i would really reccommend the people i am WHA as when i had a new clutch they would only pay for the part that needs replacing but apparently you can only get the clutch as a complete kit so therefore i had to fork out for the remaining mad.gif, but hey when to get to drive it it more than makes up for it!! beerchug.gifsmlove2.gif

it's done 40K - 5k spent on stuff recently along with a tune - clutch replaced completely - are there any engine things to look out for or electrical woes?

Many thanks,

Mike

i am presuming that the cerbera has the ajp8 engine which i am not that familiar with (tuscan has the speed 6, and newer cerberas do too). Electrically they arent that bad, unless the car leaks (which quite a number do) so check the footwells for damp. 40,000 is quite high for an engine so ensure that all servicing is completely up to date, ask for any reciepts of repairs.

it's an AJP engine - will take pics and post - will check for damp, other than that to look out for the car sounds MINT!

isn't there a way to contact the dealer that serviced the car or TVR and ask around?

that's what i did when i bought the porker and it helped me in a way that they told me the owner was a real freak with his ex car and always took it in at half the length of miles where it normally should have gone in for service

never spent a euro less on service, always demanded the best no questions asked....

That red is cool. I think my favorate is probably that 2 tone purple that you see mostly on the tuscans. beerchug.gif
