Getting to this new launch has been a long road after a number of changes in ownership that resulted in production ultimately stopping with the last model being the TVR Sagaris, the final one rolling out of the factory in 2012.

The new owners  promise a 0-100 time 0f 4 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. The car is designed and produced in partnership with Gordon Murray (Famous for the maclaren F1) design and will use its istream production method. The launch car will cost just under £90.000,- and will be a run of 500 cars.

Speaking of the planned public launch, 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 surefire hit on our hands, and very much look forward to seeing the public reaction in September.”

Speaking on behalf of the Revival, Lord March said: “We are delighted that TVR will feature so strongly over the Revival weekend this year. 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 our iconic British event and I very much look forward to welcoming them to the Revival in September”.
