Now I know that there is the trifling matter of £96,000, but just bear with me – here’s why we should all bag ourselves a Trident.

First of all it will last your lifetime, however long that may be. The composite bodywork and infinitely repairable stainless steel chassis are going to be around pretty much forever.

Second, it is safe. Unlike so many of these low-volume sports cars, it will have all mod-cons such as ABS and airbags. That was something beyond the chaps at TVR, but Trident boss Phil Bevan believes that everything is possible with proper engineering.
