TVR

The British car company TVR was founded by Trevor Wilkins in 1946. Specializes in the production of passenger sports car, even the first name was Trevcar Motors. Export of cars TVR in the United States has already begun in 1956, and in 1960 started work on the racing car Grantura. By the middle of 60-s TVR Grantura there were about 100 copies. In parallel with it was also the TVR Griffit, constructed in 1963. By 1965, fully replacing the management of the company is the main shareholder of TVR was Artur Lilly.





These changes have allowed TVR significantly expand production and increase sales. Then the same for the model Grantura was developed by the successor Vixen with the 1.6-litre engine in the cross - the rest of the significant changes in the base vehicle has not been done. Headline TVR 70-x can be called the cars of the series "M", produced in the types of body hatchback, coupe and convertible. In the same period produced and TVR Tasminwho took part in the races. But despite the success of the latter, the company TVR was waiting for an unexpected decline in sales.





In 1982, the firm was acquired by Peter Wheeler, which led to the emergence of a new car TVR 350i with a powerful motor in 190 horsepower. There was also a model TVR 280ithat was a full copy of the first, but equipped with a 2.8-liter engine. It is in Wheeler the company ceased to order the engines of small volume from other firms, but tightly to take up production of its own. At the same time was revived TVR Griffith, fully assembled company - that is it is commonly considered a true triumph of TVR 80-ies.


In 2004 bought Nikolai Smolensky, the son of the famous oligarch Alexander Smolensky. In April 2006, in response to the fall in demand, production, according to rumors, has decreased from 12 cars a week for 3 or 4, the TVR laid off some of its 300 employees. In the spring of 2007 Smolensk sold the plant TVR entrepreneurs from the United States - Adam Burdettu and Jean-Michel Santakre, which intend to export TVR in the United States. However, within a month, Nikolai Smolensky again bought a controlling package of shares in the company and later confirmed the intention of eventually move the car Assembly plant in Italy, but the production of engines remain in the United Kingdom (on request TVR collects a well-known company Ricardo).



Currently, the English auction sold a sufficient number of sports TVR 90s and early 2000s years. The prices are quite adequate: model Chimaera is about 6-10 thousand pounds, and a more modern Griffith will cost 14 to 17 thousand.
