TVR Cerbera 2002 4.5 “Graphite Night Mist!”

So why the name “Graphite Night Mist?” Cos that’s the official name of the paint colour of this “Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick” Cerbera.

Specially selected? You bet! Str8six has been maintaining and servicing this beautifully kept TVR for 10 years now, and the owner’s other car as well (a Chimaera 500). We have been waiting patiently for him to decide to try a new vice and eventually the call came… “I am think of getting an Aston Martin”.

Elegant fencing ensued - the sharp-pointed variety - (we’ve had enough of shielding this year!) and now Str8six is in a position to offer another superb Cerbera to another lucky TVR 4.5 litre V8 pilot.

And this one really is a special example. First, we’ve never seen another Cerbera finished in "Graphite Night Mist" - and the paintwork on this car has been kept up to showroom condition all the time we have looked after the car. The interior trim is in dark grey smooth or perforated hide on the dashboard, centre console, and gear tunnel cover - with gear lever, handbrake and instrument stalk gaiters to contrast. The door panels are in a contrasting lighter grey. The headlining is in light grey Lamonta and the carpets are grey bound in grey. The whole effect is calm and tasteful, and it entirely suits the restrained exterior of the car.

VU52 SDX is fitted with unmarked 18 “ Spider alloys wearing Pirelli P Zero 225/40 front and 255/35 rear tyres. Inside, the car has a sophisticated Alpine UTE 930 AB Audio system playing through high quality JL Audio door-mounted and rear quarter panel-fitted speakers.

The car does of course have efficient air conditioning to keep you cool as this 2+2 coupe lays down true supercar performance. Its going to have to be a very hot Aston Martin to justify the switch methinks! The Cerbera 4.5 V8 produces 420 bhp and 380 lbs ft of torque, which powers the car from zero to 60 in 4.1 secs and on to 185 mph. Aston’s non - supercharged 4,7 V8 is good for the same 420 bhp and 347 lbs ft of torque. But the Aston weighs a chunk more, so it runs zero to 60 in 4.8 secs and tops out at 175. You pays your money and you takes your choice. Oh, should also mention Cerberas are a lot rarer.

There are some other persuasive factors to consider, regarding the power of the Cerbera. As you may know, early examples were built with a 4.2 Litre 75 degree flat plane crank V8 - then offering one of the highest specific outputs of any naturally aspirated V8 - at 83.3 hp/litre! The 4.5 litre V8 engine, as fitted to this car, lifted that to 93.3 hp/litre.

Fuel consumption figures for the Cerbera lie between 16 - 24 mpg. And If you are brave enough to exploit the engine’s full throttle power above 4,000 RPM you will discover why some say that a Cerbera V8 engine is savage.

This stunning TVR is priced competitively with other examples on the market at the moment. It may be that you would like this car in your garage but feel the acquisition may be a bridge too far financially? If this is the case, then you might like to know that this Classic TVR is eligible for a Finance Arrangement that extends way beyond normal terms - indeed as far as a period of 10 years if you so wish.

If you do elect to place this car on your drive, Str8six will supply this particular Cerbera fully prepared,
with a 12,000 mile service, 12 months MOT, 12 months TAX and a Full, “No Quibble” 12 months /12,000 miles WEAR and TEAR WARRANTY, which covers PARTS and LABOUR on the whole car. The car will also come equipped with a 12 volt battery charger and a set of jump leads.

And, just so you can be sure that this car is worth its attractive price point, please review the comprehensive service history recorded.
