With an extraordinary 917bhp/ton, the highest power to weight ratio in the history of the road car, the mighty Cerbera Speed 12 promised McLaren slaying performance. The flagship TVR, developed from the successful racer, was powered by what was essentially two conjoined Speed 6 engines, resulting in a 7.7 litre V12 pushing out over 880bhp in road trim! Performance figures have never been taken but expect 0-60mph in around 3 seconds on to a potential 240mph maximum - the only limiting factor being traction.

Series production turned out to be unworkable due to the limited demand for such an extreme car but one example has somehow found it's way onto the road.
