I remember seeing the Tuscan in the movie “Swordfish” and it had that sick chameleon type paint. Look it up

I thought about buying a TVR back in the 80's. The dealer pulled it out of the garage & it burst into flames. I'm guessing they used Lucas electrics. LOL

I can't belive this isn't a comedy show. Laughed way to hard at this video. Especialy to the naked model part.
