TVR Headed for US with All-New 500hp Supercar

TVR, the bespoke automaker best known for making a cameo in the movie Swordfish, will be relaunched soon.

Citing unnamed sources, Pistonheads is reporting TVR will unveil a new sportscar this summer - possibly at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. While details are limited, the car is expected to be built in Germany.

Despite remaining faithful to "traditional TVR values", power will likely be provided by a crate engine from GM or Ford. This would allow the Russian-owned company to save millions of dollars on engine development and homologation. If TVR were to choose a GM engine, it would likely be the 505 hp LS7, the 566 hp LSA, or the 638 hp LS9 from the Corvette ZR1.
