British Car Set To Wow American Movie Goers

British car firm TVR are bracing themselves for a huge upsurge in orders as one of their vehicles stars alongside JOHN TRAVOLTA.

The PULP FICTION (1996) star drives the TVR TUSCAN in his latest thriller, SWORD FISH (2001).

The futuristic coupe, made in Blackpool, England, can reach 180 miles-per-hour (288 kilometres-per-hour) and is currently only available in America by personal import.

The movie's producer, JOEL SILVER, says, "Both John and I wanted something different and exotic. Not a FERRARI or a LAMBORGHINI, because everyone has already seen that. " (KAB/WNTST/MCM)
