After many attempts of reviving the brand, TVR owners are on
the right path. They promise to relaunch the TVR brand soon, with a sports car built
together with important names in UK automotive industry.
In a press release
published today, TVR announces the car was created in collaboration with Gordon
Murray Design and Cosworth, each providing much of the core design and
engineering capability for the all-new TVR. The project is already well
advanced with over a year of development completed, but more specification
details and early images will be available later in 2015.
The car will continue
the tradition of a classic British two-seat sports car with a composite ground
effect aero chassis and body package using Gordon Murray Design’s "iStream" technology. It will also feature the traditional TVR DNA of a front engine with
rear wheel drive and a manual transmission, powered by a normally aspirated,
dry-sumped, V8 engine, developed and engineered by Cosworth.
Production of the car will begin in 2017, and will be
offered to the market at a competitive price point within its segment and
consistent with TVR’s positioning in the past. TVR is an all-British
institution, so the cars will be completely produced in new UK factory
Les Edgar, Chairman of TVR said: "We know that a new
TVR has to be better than just good – it has to be outstanding. 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 motor sport and high performance
car design and engineering speaks for themselves. Gordon Murray Design and
Cosworth are the perfect partners for TVR and together, we will deliver a truly
exceptional new car."
