At long last, the new TVR has been announced (again). ABS & TC means this is a totally different beast to previous - but a Mustang V8 in a Gordon Murray istream chassis should be fun :D

To me it has the Scorpio mouth - not quite as bad but that's what I thought of.

I like it, well who wouldn't, but I mean I think it looks good.
Not in red, but one can choose ...

I've had four TVRs in the past (the first one 40 years in the past :shock: ) ...

But at £100k I'll pass on this one :)

I thought it looked ok... untill I saw that interior, at £90.000 customers should expect better than that. Still if it brings manufacturing jobs to south wales and resurects the brand I might overlook its design shortcomings.

Test of the V8 at Cosworth - apparently it's currently on road tests in a lightened Cerbera
