The “Scariest Car Ever” is up for sale – it’s one of a kind and costs a FORTUNE
A road-legal British racing car is up for auction and, being a totally unique model, is expected to fetch in excess of £300,000 when it comes under the hammer.
The TVR Cerbera Speed 12 never actually made it into production, so the lucky new owner can rest assured that they have an absolutely exclusive model on the road.
The Speed 12 looked like a race car that happens to be road legal, but was so powerful and difficult to drive as a prototype that the decision was made not to go ahead with a production run.
TVR and then-boss Peter Wheeler weren’t known for shirking a challenge, but even the company’s top man (who drove other models in his spare time) thought it was too much of a handful for buyers.
Developed with the intention of keeping up with the famous McLaren F1, the Speed 12 features a 7.7 liter V12 petrol engine.
The powerplant produced around 850 hp while the car weighed only around 1,000 kg, so acceleration was fierce.
TVR built a Speed 12 road car – consisting of street car, prototype and race parts – and sold it to a buyer who Wheeler personally screened to ensure it was going to the right home.
If you happen to have a few hundred thousand pounds to spare then you should pay a visit to Supercar Fest in Northamptonshire on May 20th where Silverstone Auctions will organize the sale.
Shy and reserved types don’t have to count.
