While recently speaking with Autocar, TVR’s brand new owner and investor Les Edgar hinted that the British sports car manufacturer could return to Le Mans racing in the coming years if all goes well in terms of relaunching the brand with two new models in 2015.
While also speaking about the prospects of relaunching the TVR brand for the road, Edgar insisted that two new sports cars will be produced by the British company in the next few years and that these two new front-engined, rear-wheel drive British supercars will remain true to the TVRs of the past we’ve come to love. To begin with, TVR is set to focus on launching a new car with its own design followed soon thereafter by a second model set to cost between 50,000 and 80,000 pounds.
Remaining true to his statement that the new supercars created by the kickstarted TVR brand will maintain the character of TVRs from the past, Edgar revealed that the plan is to create two sports cars as simple, stripped-down and as free of electronic gizmos as possible. Consequently, TVR will instead focus solely on performance, driving factors and the overall character of the car. What this means is that future TVRs will be capable of supercar performance but with a far lower price.
Les Edgar is a Surrey-based Aston Martin racer and computer games millionaire who as we all know, recently led an investor group to buy TVR and all of its assets.
