What's all this about?

Remember TVR? The Blackpool-based maker of often loopy sports cars? It's back, and ready to start taking orders again.

Orders for what exactly?

Since taking over ownership from the not-so-successive Russian millionaire, Nikolay Smolensky, the company has started work on an all-new sports car that will be jointly developed by well-respected designer, Gordon Murray, and will be powered by a Cosworth V8 engine.

Any other details on the car?

Not just yet; it seems that TVR's new management are keen not to make too many bold statements or promises ahead of time, though given the parties involved it should be much more like the TVRs of the past.

So how do I get one?

If you want to be one of the early owners of the new car TVR is opening its order book on July 7th and a deposit of £5,000 will secure your order. If you happen to be a member of the TVR Owners Club you can avail of a limited number of deposit places that require just a £2,500 down payment to secure a slot, something TVR's Operations Director, John Chasey, was keen to do in order to recognise the continued support from existing owners.

He went on to say: "We've been totally blown away by the reaction to the new car. Our phone lines and online enquiry system went into meltdown when the news was announced, and we decided that we must begin to bring a structure to the enquiries and build a delivery pipeline well in advance of production. Volumes in year one will be limited as we ramp up production, so this allows us to reward those individuals prepared to make a financial commitment at this early stage."
