He ordered to put the Rover V8 engine for Tasmin to create a 350i version of the original Tasmin that had 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 2.8-liter V6 engines. The V8 engine gave Tasmin what a real sports car needed in that era, except for its looks.
TVR’s Grantura had simple chassis, front-engine, short wheelbase, glass fiber body, and a read-drive design. TVR initially offered customers to customize the engine for Granturas, but later they started making MG-powered cars. It was an exceptional road car with a sporty design that made it fun in all occasions. Grantura also remained a popular race car for a long time.
Sagaris is one of the most aggressive machines built by TVR, considering both its design and performance. It was powered by a 400bhp, which was really fast in that era.

The cars under the M-Series of TVR were a new direction for exploration in the company. Models like 2500M and 3000M were designed to be more practical and civilized compared to their sister race machines. Taimar Turbo was the most notable model in the M-series. It offered 230bhp generated from a 3.0-liter V6 engine. Taimar Turbo has a top speed of 140mph, an ideal speed for a sports car in the 90s.
Tuscan was one of TVR’s most successful models, which did not even get approved for the road. The original Tuscan was powered with the Rover V8 engine, which was later replaced with its own AJP engine. Tuscan was a hard car to drive on the road, let alone using it for the race.
