Win this all-British beauty

a TVR Cerbera worth £37,000 with THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

It's a beautiful beast. The all British TVR Cerbera, a 160mph 2+2, is a blend of elegance and power. And it could be yours.

Equally at home around town or burning up the kilometres on a continental motorway the £37,000 Cerbera brings style and raw excitement back to motoring.

As motoring writer Roger Bell explains on this page, the Cerbera is exceptionally powerful. So, to ensure that you can handle your prize car with confidence, TVR will arrange a full day's instruction at a race track as well as a visit to its Blackpool factory.

To be in with a chance of owning this superb car, simply collect 12 differently numbered Tokens from The Independent and The Independent On Sunday. Today we print Token Seven and Token Eight will appear in tomorrow's paper.

Stick with The Independent and the car in your drive could soon be the torque of the town.

Genesis of a supercar

TVR comes of age with the launch of the Cerbera, writes Roger Bell. Out goes the old Land Rover engine, strong on muscle but low in credibility. In comes TVR's new pedigree powerhouse, the Blackpool specialist's ticket to the image-conscious supercar set. Watch out Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche and Lotus: there's a classy new kid on the block.

Off-the-shelf proprietary engines, most of Ford and Rover manufacture, have served TVR well since it was formed in the early Fifties by Trevor (hence TVR) Wilkinson. The Rover-propelled Griffiths will outsprint a Ferrari Testarossa costing more than four times as much. Raw power wasn't enough, though, for the company's present inspired owner, car freak Peter Wheeler. He wanted TVR to join the aristocratic elite with its own unique, race-bred engine.

After years of painstaking development, that dream has been fulfilled with the radical new engine that powers the Cerbera (pronounced sir-burr- uh). Wheeler race tested it himself in last year's Tuscan championship.

Designer Al Melling drew on Formula One technology to create a real blockbuster - 4.2 litres, eight cylinders, 350 horsepower... and that's just the `cooking' version. There's a more powerful 4.5 to come. Tuned for racing - TVR plans to enter a Cerbera in the Le Mans 24-hour classic - the big V8 is good for over 500hp.

TVRs are not for the timid or faint hearted. They are rumbustious cars, bred to excite and intrigue, not merely to get you there. Even the 'family' Cerbera, which has a stretched wheelbase, toddler rear seats and the civility of fixedhead bodywork, is formidably fast - and looks it. Styling that's elegantly muscular is typcial of Wheeler's TVRs. So is the cockpit, as lush as it's wacky. Anyone intimidated by power and performanance should look elsewhere for kicks.
