Looks like my triumph tr6 brake fluid reservoir. You may want to look at that. Mine only failed once. Car survived my underwear not so much.

Any classic car can make you want to wear Depends. The brakes don't even have to fail for that

Hard to see on the pictures, but the bumpers of the TVR are not connected to the frame, but just to the fiberglass body. Furthermore, there is no structure around the gas tank at all. This is really scary

It's a good thing that this car is so nimble. Keep an eye in the rear view mirror
