Legendary British sports car maker TVR is said to be preparing a return with an outrageously styled roadster packing Corvette power. TVR hasn’t made a car since 2006, when its Sagaris road car was one of the most fierce machines available for purchase, and the company is looking to resurrect their legacy under new ownership.
While details of the new car are unclear, sources say that a deal was nearly struck to build it at a facility in Germany owned by Gullwing, a company that produces modern variations of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Differences between TVR and Gullwing led to a dissolution of the project.
However, the TVR team is still proceeding with business as usual. “It would be desirable to build it in the UK, and we’re keeping our options open,” TVR secretary James Oxley told AutoExpress.
