How’s that for a Cinderella story?
When we heardthat TVR was making a comeback with Gordon Murray and Cosworth, we were excitedand a little skeptical. TVRs were known for their radical design, lunacy and powerfulengines, but somehow that didn’t equate to sales. Well, it appears as if TVRfinally has the interest to make everything work since it just sold all 250 depositsfor its new sports car in just six weeks. Interested buyers were able to place roughly$7,700 as a deposit on the new sports car to secure their spot to get the extremelylimited vehicle.
Even TVR seems alittle surprised by the turnout. Les Edgar Chairman of TVR stated: “This is aheart-warming situation we find ourselves in. We are mindful that we have takendeposits from customers who have not seen yet official pictures of the car. Welook forward to revealing more details soon, and to all our customers who haveshown their faith I can promise that the new car will exceed expectations inevery way.” The level of demand for the new TVR sports car is so high that 2018is now being quoted as the delivery date despite the first customers getting thevehicle in 2017. Let’s hope that TVR can meet expectations with their newlineup.
