Back from the brink of annihilation, British sports car maker TVR has been teasing us for the past few months with an upcoming product that is supposed to put the brand back on the map. The problem is, the teasing campaign is moving along at a snail’s pace.
So first we got the announcement, then some sketches that didn’t really reveal anything, and now, finally, an official rendering that gives us a clue as to the final design of the new TVR. Not only that, the firm also announced they will be producing the car at a new production facility located in the Ebbw Vale Enterprise Zone in South Wales with investment from the Welsh government.
So if you are one of the 350 people who have already put down money for the new TVR, rest assured they are on track with production plans. As for the details of the car itself, details are scarce, but we know it boasts a Gordon Murray-designed chassis and F1-derived technology, as well as a Cosworth tuned V8 engine. This bad boy is shaping up to be an exciting super car.
Chairman Les Edgar said: “This is a fantastic opportunity both for TVR and the Welsh Government. South Wales is becoming a major hub for automotive and motorsport technology and development and the area is a serious opportunity for business development and job creation. We have a sports car project that has garnered global approval and excitement, and we are delighted that the Welsh government wish to become a part of an exciting new era for TVR.”
