I think 500 T3 were made, not 100% sure.
I know that 204 were TE50(90A, 114M), I think only a couple TL50 and rest would be TS50

Out of this lot 50 went to NZ.

Eureka,

Someone posted this a few months back

Model Auto Man Total
TE50 90 114 204
TS50 152 72 224
TL50 3 0 3
245 186 431

Certainly a fairly exclusive club to be in; comparable with the number of XC Cobras made in 1977/78.

My wifes' TS is a blueprint manual with Brembo's; I'm biased but I reckon thats the pick of the mix, certainly was the one on the revolving stand at the motor show. As a guestimate there were probably only 30 produced with that combination.

Cheers.

Re: How many T3 TS50s were made?

Thanks KAOS...that's interesting...so, there were 224 TS50's made (in total)...and I've got number...224 !!! (I had a feeling it was one of the last because of it's build date). That's made my day! It's got to be worth a bit, don't you think?

I agree that the blueprint with the brembos looks very nice...mine is venom with the brembos (and an auto). Originally I wanted to buy a manual, until I drove one! I have NEVER known drive line shunt like it (if that's the correct term)! Still would have bought it though, had I not come across an auto...

Eureka,

Never quite got to the bottom of how they numbered the cars, ours is #184 which was a May 2002 build.

I think the last car built was September 2002 - vague recollection that I might have read somewhere on the FPV site that it was John Bowes personal car.

I think over the longer term they will all hold value pretty well, in whatever configuration. The auto in the TS appeared to be better value, as the auto in a TE cost more than the manual, in the TS they were the same price.

The driveline snatch appears to be worse for some cars than others, I don't find ours too bad, except for light throttle idling in places like car parks, tend to use the clutch to feather it, which stops the problem.

Car is a country car, so no peak hour jams to worry about!

Catch you...........
