World debut for new TVR at British International Motor Show

01 October 2002 #SMMT News

A stunning, TVR coupe will be launched at this year’s British International Motor Show, sponsored by The Daily Telegraph. Based on the underpinnings of the Tamora, the T350C has been styled to suit its use as a GT and one-make racing car.

The design of the car is pure motor-sport – a low drag shape, with a splitter at the front and a diffuser at the back creating down-force over both axles. Because it shares its mechanicals and interior with the Tamora, lucky buyers won’t have to wait long as it goes into production just a few weeks after the show ends.

A targa version, the T350T will also be available. Performance looks set to be electrifying with the 350 bhp 3.6 litre TVR Speed Six engine and a weight of just over 1000 kg. More details will be available at the Show on press day, 22 October.

The new T350C will be another show ‘star’, joining recently announced UK debuts like the Audi S4 quattro Avant, Bentley Continental GT, Seat’s Cordoba and Salsa concept car and the Mazda 2, Mazda RX-8, and Mazda 6 MPS concept car.

The range of new models on Show is helping push advance ticket sales to record numbers. More than 32,000 people already have their place booked at this year’s event, up 50 per cent on the same time in 2000.

And virtual Show visitors logging on at have topped the quarter of a million mark. Discount ticket sales end at midnight on 13 October which means eager motoring fans still have two weeks to book on-line, saving money on normal ticket prices.
