TVR may be suffering in the financial stakes, but it hasn’t stopped plans for the launch of an all new model from the British sports carmarker at next year’s Geneva Motor Show. Picking up the Typhon label, the new TVR will run a supercharged version of the company’s Speed Six engine and should develop around 600bhp. According to an article from PistonHeads, TVR will enhance performance even further, the new car will feature full aluminum construction for its tubular frame and carbon-fibre for the body panels.
TVR spokesman Jason Oxley has admitted that the use of such expensive materials will push prices upwards and although a retail price has yet to be set, a figure of £120,000 "is about right". The car will be the first TVR to utilize computer-aided design for its development, and although Oxley wasn’t willing to give details about the look of the new car, he did mention that it would be immediately recognizable as a TVR.
