TVR breathe life into new 200mph sports car
The Goodwood Revival of 2017 will have a very special guest. The sell-out event, held between 8th – 10th September this year, will finally reveal a sports car that fans have been begging to catch a glimpse of.
Two Revivals In One: TVR Launch at Goodwood Revival
Iconic British sports car maker TVR will unveil their all new model at the Goodwood Revival later this year. This makes them the first manufacturer to globally launch a brand new model from the renowned sporting event. TVR have promised a 1200kg sports car capable of a whopping 200mph, and an impressive 0-60mph time of less than 4 seconds. A Cosworth developed v8 engine with 5.0-litre capacity and 400bhp have also been confirmed. Yet further information surrounding the model remains limited. Since their hints at returning to production just over a year ago, TVR have remained notoriously “tight-lipped” about their new car. Only a few select fans have had the pleasure to see the new model first-hand.
“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.” – Les Edgar, Chairman of TVR.
The Fresh and the Familiar
TVR’s latest model will appear in the ‘Earls Court’ building at the Revival. The new car will be on display alongside older, heritage models. The new car lends a breath of fresh air for the brand, and mixing its debut with past models poses a great deal of excitement for TVR’s fans. The debut appearance will celebrate the British marque’s 70th anniversary. Deposits are being accepted for a special edition of the car, costing just shy of £90,000. With a flurry of fans catching revival fever, don’t expect these limited models to stay around for long. 500 Launch editions are being held back for the public unveiling, with order books set to re-open on the 8th September.
“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.” – Lord March.
