*edit* for that amount of money as i stated and always state i will just send my car off to WCC (West Cost Customs) and have them do up my car with a more proper Deception theme
16k does include the full stripping, and my erhm, well... prety demanding standards.

I specifically asked to spray some parts black (I don't like the strut towers in the body colour, prefer them a bit more discrete), the wheels needed to be custom painted, things like that... well, they do add up. In total the car has cost me a (to put it gently) quite substantial amount

Now THAT is a special edition Camaro. Much more worthwhile to the paying customer, IMO

Yeah, they are nice to drive, one of the best handling TVRs out there.

Problem I have with it though: it's slower than the Tuscan, which has a far more aerodynamical shape.

Don't know if you've seen the online Pirelli movie "The Call"? Nice black Sagaris in there (which I planned on buying before the Russian owner of TVR simply gave it to the wrong people... who disappeared with that car...)

i love it for its looks it is one of the best looking cars in the world today. and yeah slower cause of the smaller motor. I know the tuscan and the sagaris. Is like compareing the camaro to the corvette (in retrospect) but just like i would choise the camaro over the corvette i would choise the sagaris over the tuscan any day of the week

Sagaris is always a 4 liter, Tuscans were available in 3.6 and 4.0. It's the bodywork that slows the Sagaris down in a straight line, but it helps with the cornering

Another problem I found with the Sagaris: the roof line is so low that it is almost impossible to drive it with a helmet on, without touching the built in rollcage, unless you drive with your head tilted left all the time (only RHD).

Tuscan has much more room, and an open roof.. but all in all, not much difference between the two in terms of handling (given you have a proper geo setup on the Tuscan...), with the Sagaris being that little bit faster through turns due to the more track oriented setup.

Anyway, back on track: the Camaro's a great addition to my little collection
