Information about TVR

TVR, the quintessential British sports car brand, carries a storied legacy of innovation, design, and sheer driving thrill. Founded in 1947 by Trevor Wilkinson, TVR etched its name in automotive history with its dedication to lightweight, high-performance vehicles. The brand’s name, a stylized abbreviation of the founder’s first name, became synonymous with independent thinking and automotive excellence.

TVR’s journey began with the creation of bespoke and spirited cars built on the ethos of ‘built by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts.’ The first car, the TVR One, set the stage with its handmade craftsmanship and focus on agility and speed. Over the decades, TVR developed a cult following for its distinctive designs and roaring engines, highlighted by models like the Griffith and the Cerbera, which became icons of British motor engineering.

In recent years, TVR has experienced both revival and challenges. The announcement of the TVR Griffith in 2017 marked a promising return, blending classic TVR elements with modern technology like a Cosworth-enhanced engine and a Gordon Murray-designed chassis. However, the path to production has been fraught with delays, reflecting the brand’s ongoing struggle to balance its ambitious vision with operational realities. Despite these hurdles, TVR’s passionate community and rich heritage continue to fuel its drive towards the future.
