TVR. An exclusive brand that’s been synonymous with the world’s most powerful performance cars, both on the track and on the road, for some sixty years.
Few marques conjure up the same sense of theatre and passion among their fans and followers, or fear among the uninitiated.
Step inside a carefully hand-crafted TVR and drive it, however, and one knows immediately the real truth: that there is much more to these British-bred beasts than first meets the eye, that they are paradoxical and that the truth goes far deeper than the cars’ antecedent notoriety perhaps implies.
Today, TVR’s prodigious power and performance is married to a new, real-world sophistication.
But none of TVR’s character, flair or soulfulness has been compromised in making the cars more pragmatic; in fact, it is precisely because of the latest models’ profound capabilities and luxuriousness that the experience is enriched even more than ever before.
Combined with tantalizing designs and an erstwhile driving sensation is a more distinguished refinement, both to the drive set-up and to the finish.
The remarkable result is that every journey is an adventure that’s both cognitive and visceral. An adventure that awakens every sense, and even seems to evoke new ones.
TVR. Passion. Pride. Performance. Now with a dash of practicality.
For nearly 60 years, TVR has enjoyed an illustrious motorsport career, beginning in the 1940s with Trevor Wilkinson’s personal passion for motor racing, which ultimately led him to establish the TVR marque.
Since then, TVR has gone on to compete successfully in several Les 24 Heures du Mans, Le Mans Endurance Series and numerous British and international GT championships, as well as spawning the phenomenal Tuscan Challenge series, which ran for some 16 seasons.
In the 1990s, TVR revealed to the world its frighteningly powerful Cerbera Speed 12, which pioneered the use of carbon fibre and aluminium honeycomb, encasing its monstrous, home-grown 7.7 litre, 800 bhp V12.
Arguably TVR’s greatest success was had in 2004 when two awesome Tuscan T400Rs completed Les 24 Heures du Mans, the most prestigious and grueling of all endurance motor races.
TVR is proud of its motorsport history, and continues to be committed to its racing roots and to its success on the GT scene. But as part of its ethos of continual development, TVR plans to prove itself further on the international race circuit, as well as on the roads.
