Good Times Roll For Blackpool's TVR

The TVR T350

 

Business is vrooming for Blackpool-based sportscar king TVR. The company sold out six weeks' production of its new T350 stunner on the first day of the show!

Deliveries of these 30 cars will start in December, and interest in the rest of TVR's range was equally hectic with the crowds thronging around the stand.

TVR's Ben Samuelson claimed the reason for the T350's appeal was simple: “It looks fantastic. Everyone knows that TVRs go like a ferret down a drainpipe and sound awesome, but the feedback from everyone is that they love the looks.”

Coupled to that, the £37,500 two-seater is pretty quick off the mark - it hits 60 mph from rest in 4.4 seconds and is powered by a 3.6 litre engine.

TVR has gone from strength to strength in recent years and it expects to take orders for a tenth of its overall annual production, about 120 cars, at the NEC Show.
