Driving to work this morning, I was passed by a TVR that was not being towed in any noticeable way.

It was on the M3 southbound, between junctions 5 and 6, around 7.45.

I'm just looking for verification that I haven't gone mad and started hallucinating.

Regards
Mike

in case you aren't aware, TVR may be on the way back.....http://tvr.co.uk/

someone I know works for a company that has been asked by Gordon Murray's company to price up a wiring loom for a new TVR

maybe that one that overtook Foul was a test bed for a new one?? new company is based near Dorking I believe
