the quintessential car brand has announced that it will return to the market with an all-new british designed and built sports vehicle. the company has developed it in collaboration with gordon murray design and cosworth, each providing much of the core design and engineering capability for the all-new TVR. this incredible project is already well advanced with over a year of development completed so far.

the car aims to continue the tradition of a classic two-seat sports car with a composite ground effect aero chassis and body package using gordon murray design’s innovative ‘iStream’ technology. enthusiasts will also be delighted to know that the car will feature the traditional TVR DNA of a front engine with rear wheel drive and a manual transmission, powered by a V8 engine, developed and engineered by cosworth.

the TVR sagaris has clearly influenced the latest design 




gordon murray, chairman of GMD comments, ‘TVR is an iconic brand which has been an important part of british sports car manufacturing for many decades. its return to manufacturing is an exciting development and the car deserves the best chassis and powertrain that can possibly be delivered. to that end, I am delighted that our company is involved with the project, and that TVR are using our iStream technology.’

the automobile will feature engineering components from cosworth  




bruce wood, cosworth technical director, said, ‘we are proud to see cosworth’s industry-leading engineering at the heart of the revived TVR brand. our team has been working closely with TVR and gordon murray design to develop a powertrain solution that perfectly complements the exceptional performance characteristics of the new car. it’s an exciting project and one which well suits cosworth’s engineering expertise’

les edgar, chairman of TVR and gordon murray agree on production




les edgar, chairman of TVR said, ‘we know that a new TVR has to be better than just good – it has to be outstanding. from the outset we only wanted to work with the best partners in the business, and both gordon murray’s and cosworth’s track records within motor sport and high performance car design and engineering speak for themselves. GMD and cosworth are the perfect partners for TVR and together, we will deliver a truly exceptional new car’. production of the car will begin in 2017 and the cars will be completely produced in new UK factory premises, prioritizing the company’s position as an all-british institution.

  • Has nobody copied the Bill Thomas Cheetah? Car design seems to be either stuck in history books or by corporate spying. Management seems to be afraid of new talent and ideas that arise from places like Art Center or CCS.

  • A car should appeal to the senses by a attractive and pleasurable of design project combination of form and mechanics.
    This car got gorgeous, and I too congratulate the proficuous association of Les Edgar & Gordon Murray maturity.
    I want mine in dark blue…
