TVR’s central holding company in Austria has launched a brand-new website, complete with an horrific new marque logo, which breaks links with the Lilley-Wheeler era – and far more iconic – badge. On the website, the new car options are for a ‘reborn TVR’ with full factory warranty, which means a complete overhaul of a Griffith to Sagaris. This includes a new 6.2-litre 426bhp 420lb ft V8 engine, and a reinforced five-speed gearbox.
The company can also build new a Sagaris, Tuscan convertible, Tuscan MkII, Cerbera, Chimaera and Griffith to individual specifications. That V8 is a GM LS3, and for those familiar with the AC MkVI, it’s a great little package, perfect for shifting lightweight sports cars along at a fair old clip.
The rumours of a new TVR convertible won’t go away, either – and a spokesman for the company told AROnline last year that a car had been designed and it was looking for a partner with whom to build it.
