TVR and Sagaris Coupe Reborn for 2009

Tvr Sagaris

After a series of corporate buyouts that had more twists and turns than a daytime soap opera, British sports car manufacturer TVR appears to be reborn.; Enthusiasts and dealers were invited to the firm's headquarters in Wesham, England, this morning for a look at the new 2009 Sagaris coupe.

Based heavily upon the last Sagaris, which was launched in 2004, the new car sports a few slight changes both inside and out.; Perhaps most notable is an all-new interior, which attempts to streamline its appearance with a new 'infotainment' control system in the center stack.

Mechanically, the 'new' Sagaris uses the same 380-hp 4.0-liter I-6 found in previous cars, but is equipped with revised suspension and brake systems.

The firm, still owned by Russian billionaire Nikolai Smolensky, intends to build the Sagaris in both left- and right-hand-drive configurations, for sale throughout Europe and the Middle East.; If all goes well, TVR could resume production as early as December of 2008.

TVR WAS sold in the US - unfortunately they pulled out of the market as so many other companies have done through the years...Yeah, it would be great to have them back, however last I heard it cost over a million dollars to safety-test a vehicle for sale in the US, and if they find any issues, there could be extensive redesign with subsequent retesting on top of that! Not at all practical for a vechile that might sell only a few thousand units total...
Thank god that TVR is making a comeback! When can I buy one in the US? I am a long time TVR fan, an djust really, really, really wish they were sold here in the States... :-(
