TVR’s epic new supercar slayer will debut this Friday, 8 September 2017, at the Goodwood Revival Earls Court Motor Show. Marking the brand’s 70th anniversary, the new TVR will make its global debut at 08:30 BST.
Created in conjunction with Gordon Murray Design, the new TVR has been designed and engineered with driver focused performance and safety as its main priority.
The use of side exhausts allows a flat floor configuration generating downforce by channeling the airflow along the underside of the vehicle to suck it towards the road. By employing ground effect in the new car’s design, TVR has ensured it remains unflinchingly stable at high speeds while delivering exceptional handling and cornering capabilities.
The all new TVR features a 5.0 litre V8 powerplant with 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.
Gordon Murray Design’s unique iStream process, in addition to being extremely lightweight, delivers exceptional torsional rigidity and passive safety capabilities. The vehicle’s carbon fibre composite construction boasts a rigidity of almost 20,000 Nm per degree and is also designed to direct impact force to the tyres for increased safety. The new car also features airbags, ABS and ESP.
With a limited run of just 500 Launch Edition cars available for less than £90,000, anticipation and demand for the 400BHP per tonne, five-litre, Cosworth developed V8-powered car is already at fever-pitch.
The unveiling of the car at the Goodwood Revival is a first for the world-renowned Sussex-based event. 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.
