The TVR Typhon is a sports car designed and built by the British car manufacturer TVR in their former factory in Blackpool. The Typhon is possibly the fastest production TVR ever,except the Cerbera Speed 12 which was produced only in one example.

Like all TVR's the car lacked any electronical safety devices such ABS or any kind of traction control. It's power stemmed from the same TVR Speed Six straight six engine that powers the Tuscan, Sagaris and Cerbera Speed Six, although this engine was supercharged and produced up to 585 bhp at 7000rpm and up to 633NM of torque at 5000 rpm. Furthermore the engine had twin intercoolers to provide better cooling for the supercharger which was belt driven. The whole bodywork was made of carbonfiber unlike normal TVRs which are made from fiberglass that kept the overall weight down giving it a incredible 530bhp per tonne. Moreover the whole chassis was designed from ground up using very sophisticated CAD and CAM software. In addition the rigidity of the whole structure was increased by a race type roll cage as well as the use of honeycomb and carbonfibre on the floor. The Typhon was also the first road going TVR to use adjustable dampers enabling customers to fine fettle with their car's handling.
