We’ve been talking about a rebirth of British sportscar legends TVR for, what, four years now? Two years ago we learned it would have a design by McLaren F1 (and nifty city car) designer Gordon Murray, and last year we learned it would be made of carbon fiber using Murray’s iStream novel carbon fiber construction…
TVR is coming back! True gearheads feel this news deep in their guts, in that gland that secretes whatever that hormone that inhibits rational decisions is called. We’ve known it’s coming for a while, but this is the first hint from TVR as to what the reborn Griffin will look like. And it’s made of tape.
TVR is coming back! It’s actually happening, and now they’ve begun to settle on an exciting new home with track access and a state-of-the-art manufacturing process. V8s. Carbon fiber. Batshit insanity. It’s back.
Not long after Gordon Murray revealed his new iStream Carbon chassis structure with Yamaha’s tasty concept car, TVR announced that the full carbon package will be a no cost option on its Launch Edition cars expected later this year. And there’s more.
Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.
The TVR Trident concept was a huge hit at the 1965 Geneva Motor Show with its coachbuilt Italian body and American V8, but since TVR went bankrupt soon after, its rights landed in the hands of another failed British carmaker.
There are lots of performance package names out there. RS, Type R, GT3 R, and even the excellent Spec c Type RA-R. But none compare to the name TVR gave its top performance package: Red Rose.
Here’s a TVR Cerbera doing a dyno run. Also, there’s a cute dog there.
The TVR Griffith is turning 25 years old next year. That means you can bring them over. But should one, buy one?
The new TVR company led by British entrepreneur Les Edgar took more than 250 deposits for its Gordon Murray-designed and Cosworth-powered sports car that will debut at next year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. That means if you want one, you’ll have to wait until 2018 now.
Famed British sports car maker TVR is back, and their first new car is using a Gordon Murray Design chassis powered by a Cosworth V8. That sounds great, and there’s more great news. Like that they want to go back to America, make truly scary sports cars again, and even race at Le Mans. Too good to be true?
Today's awesome Noble M600 Speedster prototype reminded me that we need more fast British cars in our lives. Specifically, very fast ones.
At least according to Jeremy Clarkson's hair product fanatic cousin who fell in love with a purple car from Blackpool.

I don't remember anybody ever asking me about how I feel about a TVR Griffith 400, which is a shame because I would invent a new world for awesome just for this fiberglass masterpiece. What overhangs?
Great news, fans of zany British sports cars! TVR is opening an R&D center in the UK and its owners claim that it will launch an all new model in the next two or three years. If this proves to be true then I think a cheer is necessary. Huzzah!
TVR, the once-dead manufacturer of delectably insane British sports cars, is on the verge of a revival after being sold to a consortium of new owners. The bad news is that they're all newbies to the car business; the good news is that they seem to know what TVR is all about.
We Jalops have been cautiously optimistic about the revival of famed British insanemobile TVR so far. Now, an interview with the company's new owner has given us even more reason to be optimistic. Can he really get it right and bring TVR back from the brink?
We had heard rumblings coming out of the decomposing corpse that is TVR, but we just thought it was maybe the gasses of decay or something. First the TVR website returned, and then we heard that TVR was back in British hands. Now though, the new owner is saying the storied marque is going to be back making cars.
