TVR returns! Promises to build new versions of old cars

 TVR returns!  Promises to build new versions of old cars
TVR Tuscan 4 prototype? - 14.11.2011

Reserving program also announced for current owners

We haven't heard much from TVR lately, but the company is starting to show signs of life after years of dormancy.

According to their updated website, TVR will begin building the Sagaris, Tuscan, Tuscan MK II, Cerbera, Chimaera and Griffith. These are all old models, but they will be equipped with a five-speed manual and a GM-sourced 6.2-liter V8 that develops 426 hp (318 kW / 432 PS) and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque. Additionally, current owners of the aforementioned vehicles can bring them in and have them "reborn" with the new V8.

In related news, TVR has introduced an updated logo and moved their headquarters to Vienna, Austria. More notably, the company released a couple of images that appear to be a Tuscan 4 prototype.

Goodbye, TVR Speed 6 Since they're shoehorning the LS3 in it, why not provide the LS9 as well?

They are probably buying GM engines because thy are cheaper, and low tech, therfore easier to start with. I hope it want be some frankcar. I really don't like when some copany loses their soul. Anyway, I wish them luck.

Not low tech, it's simply to mention to meet emissions standards and have them easily servicable.
