TVR to launch 600bhp supercar

TVR Typhon: will the Typhoon look like this?
TVR Typhon: will the Typhoon look like this?

TVR is to launch a supercar at the Geneva motor show next spring.

It'll be called the Typhoon, and will feature TVR's all-aluminium Speed Six engine, supercharged to produced 600bhp. The carbon-fibre body ensures that it'll be expensive, TVR spokesman Jason Oxley saying that, although a retail price has yet to be fixed, around £120,000 "is about right".

In terms of styling, Oxley said that he couldn't describe what it'll look like, except that it'll be recognisable as a TVR. The Typhoon will feature TVR's first outing with computer-aided design. "It's a new method of design for us", said Oxley.

He said that the company had already taken orders for the car and so, as the still-born Typhon project could have sold twice as many as were planned, he was confident of selling all 60 of the limited edition -- the number celebrating TVR's 60th birthday.

We'll be bringing you more information as soon as we get it -- probably within 10 days.
