TVR Tuscan Mk1 4.0 RR Targa “Caffeine Machine”

The TVR Tuscan Re-imagined!

Your favourite Tuscan is a Mk1 with a 4.0S engine. But you are having difficulty finding one in drop dead gorgeous condition - and not finished in a "lairy" colour that will be impossible to match should the need ever arise.

At Str8six we share your views. As you may have seen, we created our “Signature” Mk1 Tuscan for the pre Pandemic Historic Motor Show - held in what became the Docklands Nightingale Hospital. That Tuscan was built as an example of what Str8six can achieve. It was born from a total strip down - to the very last nut and bolt - followed by a rebuild to concours standard. But that car came at a price - £85,000 - which is not every one’s cup of tea! A fairly exclusive price for a very exclusive car. The Signature Tuscan is now sold and in final preparation for its new owner.

In 2019, we decided the next Tuscan we would create to bespoke standards would also be derived from a suitable, undamaged Mk1 - in this instance a "Red Rose" (the precursor to the “S”). We believe this model will become one of the “Heirloom Keeper” TVRs of the future. This time we determined we would produce an epic Tuscan, but targeting a more affordable end price. However, this car also had to provide the 3 “B”s! It had to Look Beautiful, Sound Beautiful and Go Beautifully! And this time our "Semi-Signature" Tuscan is on a coffee theme - Full roast not Lattee!

The photos tell the story, (and the car is also featured on the Petrolicious Site -
