We’ve to wait still for a couple of months. And then TVR will be officially brought to new life. At next Goodwood Revival (September 8th and 9th 2017) the company will unveil the new model for the joy of visitors and, most of all, for the TVR people.
The new TVR has great potential among competitors: under the bonnet there’s a new-developed (in conjunction with Gordon Murray Design) 5-litres V8 Cosworth engine, in front-mid position as the last models (Tuscan, T350, Sagaris and Cerbera). The order book is near to complete the first 500 units that will be sold as Launch Edition. It will be reopened on sept. 8th.
This engine performs 400 BHP/ton. As TVR states the car weighs only 1.200 kilos this means the engine gives, globally, 480 hp.
The new car will go on display in the ‘Earls Court’ building at the Revival, and will be showcased at the centre of a display which features a number of older, heritage TVRs, in celebration of the British marque’s 70th anniversary.
Les Edgar, Chairman of TVR said: “We are incredibly excited to be unveiling the new car at the Goodwood Revival. It’s the first time a global launch of a new car has occurred at the event, and it seems an entirely appropriate place for us to do it, with the marque’s motorsport heritage and an enthusiastic audience of dedicated car fans – and in our 70th anniversary year. After a series of secret private viewings organised for the benefit of existing customers for the new car, we know that we have a sure-fire hit on our hands, and very much look forward to seeing the public reaction in September.”
Lord March said: “It is entirely fitting that TVR, as such an iconic British marque, should unveil what will be a very exciting entrant to the global sports car market at the Revival this year and I very much look forward to welcoming them to Goodwood in September.”
