TVR confirms carbon fibre spec for new model

Published 22 January 2016

British sports car maker TVR says a lightweight carbon fibre option will be available when its unnamed new model goes on sale later this year.

Lightweight versions of the new car, which has been designed by Gordon Murray, will feature a standalone carbon fibre tub and shell.

Les Edgar, TVR chairman said, that carbon fibre was traditionally reserved for motorsport and high-end super cars, but added TVR would be able to offer drivers the technology at a fraction of the price.

Edgar said, ‘The carbon manufacturing process really is a game changer, and one I’m delighted to offer to all of our early adopter Launch Edition customers within the package cost.

‘I am sure those models will be much coveted, but carbon will continue to be available as a cost option.’

Customers who have already placed a deposit will get the Launch Edition models, which will all have the carbon fibre option.

Subsequent cars produced can be specified with the carbon fibre option package, with pricing to be confirmed.

Customers shouldn’t have to wait too long to see what they’re getting for their money. Edgar said, ‘Our intent is to unveil the styling of the new car in the coming months at a public event, although we will be conducting car clinics before then.’

TVR recently teased a picture of the new car, using a design put together by Autocar magazine (pictured above).
