Better make some recordings of the TVR[*] just in case ;)


You mean in case of the, not unlikely, event of every TVR falling apart :evil:


Presuming he can run the engine long enough to actually get a decent recording from it...

It can stand 40 minutes being driven pretty enthusiastically around a race track so it should not be a problem. :D

Fairly unlikely to spontaneously fall apart given it has managed to get to 18 years and 70,000 miles. I would not trust it as everyday transport, then it was never designed to be such.

Oddly I have never had a pedestrian step out in front of it, it is a bit sonically obvious of course.

I have considered an electric vehicle as a commuting tool, one day when they mature into a practical proposition I may well have one, until then my Smart will have to do the job.
