The 7.7-litre V12 supercar that was too scary for anyone to drive

When it comes to collecting automobiles, but I don’t think there’s any secret that the rarer vehicle is, the more likely it’s going to be incredibly sought after. We’re not only talking about the monetary value but also the urge for enthusiasts to get the opportunity to hop behind the wheel and see what a car has got. There’s just something about that forbidden fruit that speaks to the soul in a way that is very unique to human nature as these exclusive rides are incredibly alluring.

In the world of wheels, generally, this sort of rarity is created on purpose. Manufacturers will go out of their way to put together a high end supercar that’s available to few and therefore retains great value and great appeal. In this case, however, we check in with a situation that was kind of an accident.

The TVR Cerbera Speed 12 is the result of this incredibly happy accident.

When TVR was in the midst of creating a racing machine, at one point, the company decided that they could take this race car and spin it into a street worthy version. However, the idea was eventually abandoned when the man in charge decided that the car was just too potent and rowdy for public consumption. Therefore, all examples of the machine were taken apart and used for parts in TVR’s racing division- except for one.

If you want to create a formula for a car that enthusiasts would kill to drive, make something that you think they can’t handle and take it away from them.

Below, with the help of DRIVETRIBE, we check in with the purely brutal and organic Cerbera V12, a car well-known from video game lore that is very much alive and one-of-a-kind. With 7.7L an 840 hp of ground pounding V12 racing engine power, this machine is one of the most unconventional ways to go for the ride of a lifetime.
