Despite major cuts in TVR’s budget and the downsizing of 300 staff earlier this year due to falling demand, the company is planning to expand its operations by building a run of 60 limited edition Typhoons. Further, owner Nikolai Smolenski commented in a Swiss publication that the company is determined to re-enter the Le Mans series with a possible new Cerbera that could debut at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.

The Typhoon which was developed during the reign of previous owner, Peter Wheeler, features a supercharged six-cylinder 4.0L engine developing 550hp and 550Nm of torque. With a curb weight of just 1,160kg, the Typhoon can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 320km/h. Final pricing has yet to be set.

This means that the company may be in better shape than previous reports have suggested. Current production numbers are estimated to be less than ten vehicles a week and the company has announced that any new vehicle will conform to the Euro IV emissions standards.
