TVR planning comeback in 2017


TVR, an independent British sports car manufacturer, who contributed in giving some most insane sports cars in the market is now returning back in the scene after a small vacation. The company, owned by a businessman Les Edgar since 2013. Edgar is a British businessman, who temporarily shut down the company to restructure in 2013, is now supposedly back with four new models.

TVR is expected to unveil its first new model in just two years, while all the 4 cars are expected by the end of the decade. The first car, which is to be soon unveiled is being developed by Edgar in collaboration with Gordon Murray, the man behind the most amazing McLaren’s 243mph F1 sports car. With Murray, the fans and the enthusiasts have great hopes with this collaboration and expect something astonishing to be seen.

Although we have to wait till the end of the year to have a glimpse of the latest TVR model, but some details are already leaked by the company. The car is said to be using Gordon’s iStream chassis technology, and is powered by a V-8 engine, tuned by Cosworth, who is having a long suit in this job. The car is reported to be rear wheel driven, with engine on the front, and featuring a traditional gearbox.


“We know that a new TVR needs to be better than just good – it needs to be outstanding,” Edgar said in a statement. He further added, “From the outset we only wanted to work with the best partners in the business, and both Gordon Murray’s and Cosworth’s track records within motorsport and high performance car design speak for themselves.”

Edgar stated that they are now well funded and better organized, with a master plan of 10 years. He wants to witness the business and development reaching new heights under his reign. The company, as their past suggests, is quite fond of motor sports, particularly Le Mans, so the new car is expected to be developed with racing mindset, setting the adrenaline rushing for the enthusiasts. We can expect both the coupe and the convertible variants of the car, similar in dimensions to the Tuscan and Sagaris, in the market. With the most advanced engineering by the pioneers of the industry, we can expect the car to retail approximately at £50,000.
