TVR's theory of putting a lot of power into a relatively lightweight body has won many fans and produced some stunning machines. The 450 SEAC, one of their most brutal-looking cars with performance to match, was produced from 1988 to 1991. In TVR tradition the chassis is tubular steel with a central backbone and outriggers along the sills to provide side impact protection. Independent suspension all around using double wishbones at the front and lower wishbones at the rear provided a nimble, if firm, ride. The body was made from glass-fiber composite and the engine is all-aluminium; as such the car is only just over a ton so has an excellent power-to-weight ratio. The powerplant is a heavily modified version of the Rover V8, the TVR's being bored and stroked to give an extra liter displacement and fitted with Lucas L-Type electronic fuel injection.
