    ... the one John Travolta was driving. I looked like a Viper with a rounder body and a steering wheel on the right side.

    What was it? Very cool car!

    I think it is a famous British sports car. Something like a Travian or a TVR.

    I only know it cause you can buy it in PS2 Gran Turisom 3!

    Excellent car.

    Let me get this straight. You watched Swordfish, drank it all in, and when it was done, what was rolling around in your mind?
    You were looking at [rant]the car[/rant]?!?!?!?! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Only a $100k British sports car but can pick them up on the cheap $50k if you look for good used ones [​IMG]

    The TVR Tuscan... sigh.
    0-62 in 3.9 seconds anyone? Handling, anyone?
    Price to compete with the M3, anyone? (In the UK)

    Of course, all the galleries in the web won't come close to expressing the real reason everyone loves TVRs: the sound. Mmmm, lovely. And I'm not even usually a car nut.
