I remember being told the story of the little dust explosion some time ago. Was this the car in question?
No, that was one of my Cerberas. Every car I've ever owned I've pushed it to the max to see how fast it would go. Every car except for that one because it filled with fibreglass dust at a shade under 200mph.
The Speed-12 was rescued from oblivion at at the TVR factory where it was about to be cut up (we basically stole it) and it languished alongside K7
for several years before being loaned to the late Carl Spencer as an ornament for his reception area at work and then, following Carl's untimely death, we returned it to the estate of Peter Wheeler who died at more or less the same time. I've no idea where it is now but it was a fun thing to have around.

This is not put on as a public entertainment... it's put on to reach a certain goal.
