New 2017 TVR to be Built in Factory in Wales

The new TVR – the first to be launched in a decade next year – will be built in Wales.

News that the British manufacturer, owned by businessman Les Edgar since 2013, is set to start building its next sports car in a Welsh factory follows Aston Martin’s announcement last month that it also plans to build a facility in the principality.

TVR has promised to produce a Formula One-inspired ground-effect technology which will help its new car stick to the road around corners.

It will also be a front-engined, rear-wheel-drive two seater vehicle with a traditional manual gearbox according to Edgar who is developing the car in partnership with Gordon Murray. The TVR will be powered by a V8 engine that is being built by Cosworth.

Murray is famous for his involvement on McLaren’s F1 hypercar – a 6.1 litre V12 engine that produced 627bhp and has a top speed of 240mph – owned by Blackadder and Mr Bean star, Rowan Atkinson.

The new TVR is expected to start at around £50,000 and it has already reportedly received around 350 deposits. Edgar plans to build at least four new TVR models at the Welsh factory over the next 10 years.

TVR was founded in 1947 by Trevor Wilkinson but enjoyed its most successful spell under Peter Wheeler in the Nineties with the release of such classic models as the Chimaera, Cerbera and Griffith.

Like many sports car manufacturers, the company has had a troubled history and Edgar, who made his fortune in the computer gaming industry, bought TVR from Russian millionaire Nikolai Smolenski in 2013 but insists it is ‘here to stay’.
