Revived TVR sells out of new car ahead of unveiling
The resurrected brand has reportedly received 250 deposits in a span of just six weeks.
Revived British automaker TVR has reportedly sold out of its upcoming car, due to arrive on the market in 2017.
Interestingly, the company received deposits for the full year's allocation of 250 units despite a lack of any official pictures or much solid information for the exclusive model, according to an Autocar report.
The endeavor is led by a partnership between Gordon Murray Design and Cosworth Engineering. The new car promises to be presented as both a two seat coupe and convertible, each outfitted with a front-mounted V8 and a manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. It is also said to be "British in every way" and an "incredible value" for the money.
"This a heart-warming situation we find ourselves in," said TVR chairman Les Edgar. "We are mindful that we have taken deposits from customers who have not even yet seen official pictures of the car. We look forward to revealing more details soon, and to all our customers who have shown their faith I can promise that the new car will exceed expectations in every way."
The sold-out mystery model is the first of four new additions outlined in TVR's 10-year plan. Production numbers will eventually reach 1,000-1,500 units annually, with prices expected to start at £60,000 (~$92,235 USD).
