Legendary British manufacturer TVR is launching its first new car for over a decade at the Goodwood Revival festival this September.
The new lightweight sports car will be the first to be launched at the historical motorsport event, which takes place from September 8 to 10.
Designed and built in partnership with Gordon Murray Design, the new model – which is yet to be named – will be fitted with a 5.0-litre Cosworth V8 engine and will weigh 1200kg. This helps to provide a 0-60mph time of less than four seconds and a top speed of about 200mph thanks to a reported power-to-weight ratio of 400bhp per tonne.
It will be the centrepiece of a special TVR display in the Earls Court building at the Sussex-based event, and the owner of the Goodwood estate and president of the British Automobile Racing Club Lord March said: "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 the Revival this year and I very much look forward to welcoming them to Goodwood in September."
Les Edgar, chairman of TVR, said: "We are incredibly excited to be unveiling the new car at the Goodwood Revival.
It is reported the vehicle costs close to £90,000 and 500 Launch Edition models will be made.
