Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. Sports car company TVR is to cease production in the UK, with the loss of 250 jobs at its factory in Blackpool.

    1998, Smolensky's financial empire collapsed and many ordinary Russians lost their money. And if somebody loses then somebody finds. So these thie... businessmen - father and son decided to wash their money and Smolinsky jr. baught the plant without any serious intentions. So the final is logical.
     
  3. Bloody meddling russians about to f up this great builder of truly unique cars. Watch as they sanitise them and make them bland european versions. Another great british sports car ruined! :x
     
  4. Hardly TVR was going bust years ago, unique they may well be but the whole brillrcreamed blokes in a drafty shed handcrafting eccentric and tempremental engineering, thing is I am afraid, not a world beater.
