Top 10: Classic TVRs

There’s an all-new TVR due on sale in 2017, bringing this iconic marque back to life a decade after the last car was produced. Details are still sketchy but we know it will be V8-powered, built in the UK and – being a TVR – more than a bit exciting. Frankly, we can’t wait.

Meanwhile, we have an amazing array of classic TVRs to choose from on today’s scene, some of which can now be snapped up for surprisingly sensible money. Heck, who wouldn’t be tempted by a Chimaera at £8000 or so? Here’s the pick of our favourites from the last few decades.

TVR 3000S (1978-79)

It might have been a late arrival for the M-series family but the 3000S is significant for being the first ever TVR convertible. Using the same Ford V6 as the Taimar, the 142bhp Convertible offered a top speed of 125mph-plus, with 0-60 in a claimed 7.5 seconds. Meanwhile, those who craved even more performance could opt for the Turbo Convertible with a mighty 230bhp on tap – although just thirteen Turbos were sold, compared with almost 260 examples of the 3000S Convertible.
