TVR sells out 2017 allocation for new car, 2018 order books filling fast

Lack of images not enough to put off TVR fans, as unreleased car proves successful

We might never have even seen a picture of it, but that hasn't stopped TVR from taking all 250 deposits for the 2017 production of its first new sports car. In fact, demand for the car is so high that TVR has started to take deposits for the 2018 production run.

Currently very little is known about the new TVR other than that it will feature a Cosworth built, naturally aspirated, dry-sumped V8. Described by Cosworth technical director Bruce Wood as 'perfectly complimenting the exceptional performance characteristics of the new car', the engine will likely form a central part of the new TVR experience. Rear wheel drive and a six-speed gearbox are also set to make an appearance in the 2017 TVR.

Gordon Murray Design is also involved in the project. TVR is set to incorporate its iStream technology which has, at this stage, only made appearances in small city cars rather than performance vehicles. How it will be put to use remains to be seen. TVR has thus far only explained that the car will use a 'composite ground effect aero chassis and body package'.

Other details include a Caterham-like lack of electronic safety systems and a wet combined weight said to be as low as 1100Kg. Clearly then, the new TVR will channel the hard-edge of the originals.

TVR itself is rather predictably pleased with the number of deposits taken, especially given that those who have placed them still haven't seen an image of the car. It has promised that more details will be released soon.

In the meantime, for those tempted by a next-generation TVR, clearly the order books are filling up quickly.
