TVR 1:18 models are available . Aditya has a TVR Speed 12 which is made by Hotwheels. Plus I have seen models of the Tuscan available online too at www.diecastlegends.com.

Trust me, TVR's are really tough to source. It took a joint effort by a fellow in New York and myself to find this "needle in the haystack".
But, it's worth it because the model is so rare and I only collect rare models. I've not bought some of my favourite models like the Jag XKR and Aston Martin DB7 Vantage just because they are common.
My list consists of just four models:
2000 TVR Speed 12 (Hot Wheels)
1957 Ford Thunderbird (Road Signature)
1969 Pontiac GTO (American Muscle)
1957 Jaguar XK-SS (Auto Art)
Pics will be posted on this forum real soon.
Next addition to my list (hope its soon, will be a Ferrari 365GTB)
P.S. I'm trying to locate models like the Lister Storm, Jaguar XJS, XJ Saloon, Merc S-Class (W126), 1980s Aston Martin Vantage and the air-cooled Porsche 911 since ages without any success. I would also like to see some Indian "Classics" made at some point of time - Amby Mk II / III, Premier Padmini, Mahindra CJ.

I acquired this Jaguar XK-SS just a few months ago. It's a masterpiece. The detailing is utterly fabulous.
