Just two years after it was first announced that TVR would make a return by collaborating with Cosworth and Gordon Murray, we now have an official debut date for the British company’s new car – September 8, 2017.

This will be during the Goodwood Revival event, and to celebrate the carmaker’s 70th anniversary, it will be joined be several historic TVR models. For now, all that is provided to us is this shot of one of the car’s side exhaust outlet and wheel.

However, the company did reveal a little more details about its new car, which promises to deliver a zero to 96 km/h time of less than four seconds and a top speed of 322 km/h.

Power will come from a 5.0 litre V8 engine developed by Cosworth, which should make about 486 hp, based on the these two figures quoted – vehicle weight of 1,200 kg and power-to-weight ratio of 405 hp per tonne.

The new TVR will also employ Gordon Murray Design’s iStream Carbon manufacturing process, which includes carbon-fibre (or glass-reinforced plastic) panels fused to a tubular steel frame. The iStream process is said to quicken the process manufacturing a monocoque, and keep costs down.

“We are incredibly excited to be unveiling the new car at the Goodwood Revival. It’s the first time a global launch of a new car has occurred at the event, and it seems an entirely appropriate place for us to do it, with the marque’s motorsport heritage and an enthusiastic audience of dedicated car fans – and in our 70th anniversary year,” said TVR chairman, Les Edgar.

“After a series of secret private viewings organised for the benefit of existing customers for the new car, we know that we have a surefire hit on our hands, and very much look forward to seeing the public reaction in September,” he added.

For its big launch, TVR will build 500 Launch Edition cars, which will be priced at under 90,000 pounds (RM496,116).
