REVIVED TVR’S FIRST CAR DUE in 2018

The development of TVR’s new sports car is on course despite the problems being experienced by the Circuit of Wales project close to the revived car maker’s planned new factory.

TVR chairman Les Edgar told Autocar that his company’s plan to open a factory near the site at the start of 2018 hadn’t been affected by the Welsh government’s decision not to underwrite funding for the circuit project. The proximity of the proposed Welsh motorsport hub was one of the key reasons behind TVR’s decision to establish a production base in Ebbw Vale back in 2015.

The car – which has been teased in a new image, above – is still slated for a 2018 launch after an official reveal at the Goodwood Revival on 8 September.
