TVR says that their new car has to meet the following specifications.
- British in every way – True to TVR’s DNA and heritage
- V8 – Front-engined with manual transmission & rear wheel drive
- A two seat coupe/convertible – Breathtaking in appearance and performance.
It will feature a 5.0 litre V8 powerplant with a custom clutch, flywheel and ECU. In addition, a dry-sump and other enhancements by Cosworth together with a 6-Speed manual gearbox from Tremec are designed to deliver a class leading 400 bhp per tonne power-to-weight ratio.
The car is slated to be launched in September at Goodwood. I definitely can’t wait for it.
