The Coys auction house is scheduled to pass this badass Brit roadster across the auction block next week during their Legende Et Passion auction in Monaco, and it might just be the best bang-for-the-buck in their whole lineup. Sure, this auction includes a BMW M1, a Porsche 959, and a variety of other sports and…
There was a deeply strange part of this country’s automotive history when the world was separated into a monolithic “IMPORTS” and a monolithic “DOMESTICS.” At one point, everyone’s all-time favorite car television program, Motorweek, decided to compare all the “IMPORT” convertibles. The TVR’s roof leaked.
British automaker TVR has a long history at Le Mans, but hasn’t actually been in motorsport for more than 10 years. That streak of inaction will end this season, since TVR announced that it’s back to race Le Mans once again—and not just Le Mans. Its car will race the entire World Endurance Championship season.
In a since-deleted tweet, TVR on Wednesday unveiled a pixelized version of what is a Rebellion R13 LMP1, according to Racer, that it plans to race at Le Mans this year. It’s unclear why TVR deleted its tweet, which promised a proper announcement on Thursday.
Ever since the Playstation Generation was allowed to legally import R32 Nissan Skylines under the 25-year-rule, we have seen scores of them wash up on our shores. That’s great. That’s fine and wonderful. Soon, we estimate 30 percent of all cars on American roads will be Skylines. But also, like, you know you can…
An eBay user in Powder Springs, Georgia managed to get their hands on a 1985 TVR 280i. Also known as the TVR Tasmin, this British sports car was made in really small batches and according to the seller, only seven 280s were ever sold in the United States. If that’s true, this is one ridiculously rare car.
The new TVR Griffith has all the ingredients that make it a perfect driver’s car: a 500-horsepower V8, a lightweight body, a manual gearbox. But what about the sound?
Whenever something awesome and weird gets unveiled in Europe, our first burning question is always: will it come to the U.S.? Lots of reasons, from the costs of federalizing to our standards and sales viability, keep cool cars out of our market. It’s really quite miserable to watch the lights from across the water.…
Listen: 2017 has been a bad year. When was the last time you woke up to any good news? Well, today is your day: after an eternity of delays, TVR, the British sports car company famed for its hardcore and uncompromising performance, is back with an all-new car. And they haven’t watered anything down.
TVR is coming back, you guys. This is the latest teaser image for it. And you know what? It kind of looks like a McLaren 720S. This is not a bad thing.
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 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.
