Due to financial insolvency, Russian TVR owner, Nikolai Smolenski, split TVR into multiple entities in December, 2006. But now, the British sportscar company returns beginning with the launch of an all new website with a redesigned logo inspired by the original emblem from 1954.

According to the website, TVR will provide clients with pre-owned TVR Griffith and Sagaris models and completely rebuild them to a more modern specification, including a new 6.2 liter V8 engine producing 426-hp and 420 lb.-ft of torque. Sound familiar? That’s because TVR is actually using the General Motors supplied LS3 crate engine. If a client already owns a TVR, they can bring their personal vehicles in to receive that overhaul as well.

Also, TVR now offers brand new Sagaris, Tuscan convertible, Tuscan MK II, Cerbera, Chimaera and Griffith to be brought to individual specifications. No word yet on how much the line of TVRs will cost, but judging by it’s obscurity and low production volume, we’re sure it won’t be cheap.
