I wonder if the original 7/12 body would fit over the current cars chassis, I definitely much prefer that one over the Cerbera model.I'd worry about damaging the engine anyway. And I agree about price. The Helical TR cost around 1 mill new I think? Yes. Not the same but maybe a kind of benchmark?
I know of 3 bodies. And rollcage present in all of them .

The motorshow version which was like the smooth road car but had vents in the bonnet. I don't know if this car became the road car or one of the race cars. The bonnet at least has disappeared somewhere.

Then there's the smooth road car at Goodwood FoS 2000. I've always preferred this one. Although it does look better with the wing. This was the body that was for sale a few years ago maybe 2018? Below is what it looked like in 2018 although the roof is off the racer so needs surgery.

Of course the 3rd body is what it has now so I won't post pics of that. But TVR left quite alot of stuff outside the factory after use. The 7/12 body sat outside for years.

Still it's a pretty cool car but at most I can see it maybe getting around $900k, as mentioned it doesn't really have any real pedigree outside of being in a few racing games and moderate success during racing but nothing special. I can definitely understand the appeal of it though.
