Will TVR's Beastly New Engine Help It Make A Proper Comeback?

TVR

We hope so.

Just a few weeks ago we learned that 250 people threw down deposits for TVR's newest sports car. Now there's some more news out of TVR, but this time its engine-related. Its new Le Mans engine was tested, running a simulated lap of the famous track. So, just how strong is the new powerplant? Apparently it's strong enough to shut down the test equipment because of its insane torque. The re-engineered Ford "Coyote" V8 eventually completed the lap in 3 minutes and 40 seconds, which is quite quick. Keep in mind this was just a virtual run.

Listen and watch the engine flex its muscles at the factory because it's pretty epic.

TVR plans to build its cars in many different trim levels including, two street cars, a track day car, a Tuscan Series Racer and a Le Mans car. Every car will have a V8 motor in it. TVR intends to make Le Mans its first order of business and will hit the 2017 race with its racer. The company claims it will be ready to race in 2018 and its road cars will reach customers sometime in the second half of 2017. Hopefully the wait (and deposit money) is worth it.
