The 1997 Cerbera continued in TVR's tradition of producing lightweight sportscars and developed their modern range, started with the Griffith in 1991. Conventional underneath, it used TVR's strong backbone chassis with double wishbones and anti-roll bars front and rear, though softer spring rates were used to make it more comfortable than former models. At first the car had a 224ci (4-liter) straight-six producing 365bhp (272kW). This new engine was quickly followed by a new all-alloy V8, with a flat plane crank to promote rpm, one camshaft per bank and dry sump lubrication. There were two versions of the V8: 256ci (4.2 liter) with 349bhp (260kW); and this 275ci (4.5-liter) with 420bhp (313kW). Huge vented discs with racing four-piston callipers could stop the car from 60mph (95km/h) in just 2.8 seconds. The body had electronic door buttons under the door mirror.
