TVR T350C/ T350T (2002-06)

The TVR T350 is a sports car manufactured by TVR from 2002 to 2006. It is based on the TVR Tamora, and is powered by TVR's Speed Six engine in 3.6 litre form, producing 350 hp (261 kW). Top speed: 190 mph (310 km/h). 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h): 4.4 seconds. 5-speed manual. The ‘T’ in T350 refers to the car’s Tamora underpinnings and ‘350’ to its power output.

The T350 was available in coupe and targa versions, the coupe version being known as the T350C, and the targa version the T350T, which came with a pair of removable roof panels that could be stowed in the boot. It cost an extra £2000 over the standard car. The T350 later formed the base of the TVR Sagaris.

There was also the option of a ‘Red Rose’ version. Around 30 of these were made. Red Rose cars came with an uprated engine and a big-bore exhaust, enabling them to develop either 375bhp or 400bhp depending on tune. In addition to this, the suspension was more aggressive and fully adjustable, there were a number of gearbox ratio and diff options, and the 18-inch wheels came as standard – they had to be there to accommodate the massive AP brakes. There was even a lightweight vinylester body option. It is reported that 460 units of T350s were produced. (wikipedia & evo.co.uk)
