New TVR sports-car teased with a manual gearbox

An image has been released by TVR, teasing its upcoming all-new sports car ahead of its reveal.

The revived sports car brand, bought in 2013 by entrepreneur Les Edgar, celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, having been originally founded by Trevor Wilkinson in 1947.

The teaser shows the gear stick in the new car, confirming a manual option will be available. The full reveal takes place at Goodwood Revival next month.

A limited number of launch edition cars are still available, and customers who have already ordered theirs have taken part in private previews of the vehicle, which TVR says had responses that were "nothing less than rapturous".

Edgar said: "On the 70th birthday of our marque, we are entering a new era with a precisely engineered car that delivers exhilarating performance on road and track, as well as everything discerning customers expect of a car intended for everyday use."

The upcoming car has been co-developed with Gordon Murray Design.

Murray, who famously designed the McLaren F1 hypercar and numerous Formula One racers, said: "We developed the new TVR as a product that builds on all the magic and excitement of our hand-crafted British motor cars of yesteryear.

"We combined this with a most rigorous engineering and assembly process design to ensure outstanding consistency, build quality and reliability."
