Ooh 'eck. Things aren't looking so rosy in Blackpool right now. Blackpool Automotive, the arm of TVR which owns the factory where the sports cars are built has gone into receivership and no employees of the company are being allowed on the premises. According to a statement on TVR's site, "Our plans include appointing expert partners and outsourcing to more advanced facilities, which will ultimately mean a better product for everyone, both here in the domestic market and internationally." Does this mean we'll finally see Clarkson's long-dreamed-of TVR Spetsnaz?
