Will rock a V8 5.0-liter engine with 480 horsepower developed by Cosworth.
Reborn British sports car marque TVR will finally debut its all-new model at the Goodwood Revival on September 8. The announcement made today comes along with a teaser image of the yet unnamed model showing one of the two round exhaust tips located behind the front wheels finished in black. The first 500 cars will be part of a Launch Edition priced at under £90,000 (about $115,800 / €102,800), but only of a few are still available as TVR says it will soon close the order book and re-open it this fall when the car will receive its highly anticipated premiere.
Developed in collaboration with Gordon Murray Design, the new high-performance machine might be called “Griffith “considering the moniker was registered earlier this year by TVR. Fans of the marque will remember the label was phased out back in 2002 and now it looks like it might make a comeback.
Most of the juicy technical details are already available as we know the Cosworth-developed 5.0-liter V8 will develop 400 horsepower (298 kW) per ton. Taking into account TVR says the car will weigh 1,200 kilograms (2,645 pounds), it means the engine is going to produce somewhere in the region of 480 hp (358 kW).
It’s going to be enough British punch to grant the sports car with a run to 60 mph (96 kph) in less than four seconds and a top speed of 200 mph (322 kph).
The model will share the spotlight at the Goodwood Revival with several classic TVRs to mark the company’s 70th anniversary. It should be mentioned the sports car has already been shown behind closed doors to a number of prospect buyers invited at private events. Now, TVR is gearing up to show it publicly for everyone to see.
To end with a fun fact: It’s going to be the first-ever brand new vehicle to receive its premiere at the Goodwood Revival hosted in Sussex.

05 June, 2017: The iconic British sports car maker, TVR, is delighted to announce that it will be unveiling its eagerly awaited new sports car to the public at the Goodwood Revival on 8-10 September, 2017.
Created in conjunction with Gordon Murray Design, the 1200 kg car promises incredible 200mph performance and 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds. With the special launch edition car being offered at under £90,000, anticipation and demand for the 400bhp per tonne, five-litre, Cosworth developed V8-powered car is already at fever-pitch.
The unveiling of the car at the Goodwood Revival is a first for the world-renowned Sussex-based event. The new car will go on display in the ‘Earls Court’ building at the Revival, and will be showcased at the centre of a display which features a number of older, heritage TVRs, in celebration of the British marque’s 70th anniversary.
Speaking of the planned public launch, Les Edgar, Chairman of TVR said: “We are incredibly excited to be unveiling the new car at the Goodwood Revival. It’s the first time a global launch of a new car has occurred at the event, and it seems an entirely appropriate place for us to do it, with the marque’s motorsport heritage and an enthusiastic audience of dedicated car fans – and in our 70th anniversary year. After a series of secret private viewings organised for the benefit of existing customers for the new car, we know that we have a surefire hit on our hands, and very much look forward to seeing the public reaction in September.”
Speaking on behalf of the Revival, Lord March said, “We are delighted that TVR will feature so strongly over the Revival weekend this year. It is entirely fitting that TVR, as such an iconic British marque, should unveil what will be a very exciting entrant to the global sports car market at our iconic British event and I very much look forward to welcoming them to the Revival in September”.
TVR has held back a small allocation of the 500 Launch Edition cars for the public unveiling, so will soon close the order book, before re-opening it on the 8th September.
