When TVR presented the Sagaris in the early 2000s, it had an exciting, innovative design. And better yet, it came from a company famous for brutally fast, sleek sports cars. Propelled by TVR’s own 4.0-liter high revving six-cylinder engine producing 406 HP, the Sagaris was lightning quick.
It could achieve a 3.7 second 0 to 60 mph acceleration time and a185 mph top speed. But the coolest thing about this crazy sports car was its design. They named it after a battle ax from Greek mythology, but the Sagaris was hard to describe. There are few cars that have such an aggressive design but still manage to look elegant and fast, even when standing still.
However, TVR’s management was under scrutiny for not equipping the car with standard safety features like ABS, stability control or even airbags. And that caused problems with buyers in several European markets.
