British sports car manufacturer TVR has reached its order limit in p lanned vehicle deliveries for 2017. TVR  has announced that after only six weeks they have taken 250 deposits for the brand’s new sports car.  The next generation of TVR is being engineered by Gordon Murray, the man behind the McLaren F1, with the help of Cosworth Engineering, the 2nd-winningest engine maker in Formula 1 racing history. According to TVR this has given customers the confidence to place deposits long before the finished car has been unveiled.

TVR announced they were going back into car production revealing an all-new sports car in June of this year.

Operations Director John Chasey says, “we seem to be on something of a roller coaster ride at the moment. We began to take deposits in June purely because we had so much clear demand and potential customers wanted to know when they could commit and when they might expect delivery. The new factory will be ramping up production during 2017 and therefore initial volumes are limited, but here we are only a few weeks later announcing this remarkable order take, so it’s only fair to make potential customers aware that any new orders will now be delivered in early 2018.”

TVR was established in 1947 by Trevor Wilkinson. The independent brand built an international reputation for its high-performance vehicles and innovative design, and at one time was the third-largest specialty sports car manufacturer in the world. The current management team acquired the brand in 2013.
