Depends what you're after

Really depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for long term ownership of a car to tinker with on winter nights and drive very occasionally in summer, don't mind waiting weeks for parts and spending more on maintenance than on tyres, taxes and fuel then these are the cars for you.

If you want something to drive every weekend when weather allows, put on a reasonable mileage, including some tours to Europe or around Scotland, have an easy time with servicing and freely available parts then sell easily after a couple of years when the itch returns then these are not the best cars.

I've never been a TVR fan. Several friends have had love/hate relationships with the marque, loving them when they run but recognizing they will also try to kill you at some point during every journey. Maybe that's their charm?
