TVR brings news of its upcoming 2017 model image

In an official letter, TVR chairman Les Edgar has released new info regarding the development of the brand’s new model, alongside with a teaser image.

It has been a while since we heard any news about TVR’s future model, but now we have some updates thanks to an official letter released to the public by company chairman Les Edgar. “We are at the point where we have a number of final concepts differing now only in relatively small detail, with only a few decisions left to be made,” he said. And one of these concepts has been shown to us through a teaser image attached to the letter, revealing the shape of the upcoming model.

Edgar reveals the chassis will benefit from Gordon Murray’s iStream technology. This comes on the back of the unveiling, at the Tokyo Motor show last month, of iStream Carbon, a system derived from the iStream manufacturing process, but replacing the glassfibre content with carbonfibre. As well as its weight, strength and safety benefits, it is notable for being fast and cheap to produce. This option will be available at no extra cost.

Edgar also confirmed the new TVR will be powered by a V8 Cosworth engine, but no further details were given about the unit’s figures. The next update will come in the first half of 2016 and will bring new information about the factory location together with some other car specifics such as price, minimum performance details and some further details on the styling.
