This example is likely the most highly-developed racing Sagaris in existence and has a phenomenal amount of wins under its belt, having been meticulously built from the ground up by an ex-Tuscan Challenge team to deliver unparalleled performance on track. This is the final example built by GTF, chassis #4 of four, and is a truly remarkable machine with plenty of stories to tell. Designed as an endurance-spec 24-hour car for Tim Hood, it comes equipped with all the necessary features for long-distance racing as, not only did it have to be fast, but it had to last. Having conquered the Silverstone 24-hour race twice, and clinching victory in every TVR Challenge race it attended, this car boasts an impressive racing pedigree. Under its sleek bonnet rests a front-mid-mounted GM LS7 V8 engine on just four hours, punching out nearly 600bhp and generating a formidable 550lb/ft of torque. With the whole car weighing in at just 1,100kg, the power to weight ratio is a staggering 527bhp/ton, meaning 0-60 is dispatched in just 3.0 seconds, 0-100mph takes just 6.5 seconds and the top speed is over 200mph when geared to do so. The car is further enhanced with a full JE dry sump system, all controlled and customisable by a Motec multimap ECU with traction control, launch control, auto-blip downshift, and paddle-shift, this car is undeniably well-engineered. The drivetrain features a Quaife 69G 6-speed sequential gearbox with a pneumatic paddle-shift system and a BTR limited-slip differential with adjustable gear ratios. Built upon the sturdy TVR racing chassis, the car now features custom-designed billet aluminium uprights at the front, independent double-wishbone suspension with three-way adjustable Ohlins both front and rear. Braking is courtesy of AP Racing 6-piston front brakes and 4-piston rears ensuring full confidence in slowing the car down when needed. Efficiency meets elegance with the lightweight fibreglass bodyshell, fitted with gull- wing doors and 18” slick-shod aluminium alloy centre-locking wheels. Endurance racing is made possible by the inclusion of a 120-litre ATL Bag Tank, a pit radio and air jacks. Completing this masterpiece is a full aerodynamic package, featuring a profiled front splitter, flat floor, rear diffuser, and adjustable rear wing providing optimal downforce. Spares included in the sale are: eight wheels, a spare bonnet and a N/S door. This is a rare chance to acquire a highly competitive and unique GT3 race car, primed for GT Cup, Britcar, AMOC, and CSCC Slicks.
