The Trident Clipper.
Built in 1968 as a TVR prototype, it was later on picked up by a company named Trident, which wanted to give this Clipper a go in the British market. It featured an all-american V8 under the bonnet and was astonishingly quick, with 270bhp to put on the rear wheels. Sadly, no one seemed to notice it. Even though it remained until 1977 on the market, only 140 units were built and sold.
