In-game descriptionEdit

"The final model of the 1st generation TVR, packed with the sportscar philosophy of their founder."


TVR saw rapid growth when businessman, Peter Wheeler, took the reins of the company in 1990 following the release of the Griffith. However, there were still fans of TVR that felt that the company's real image had been lost and fretted that sports cars envisioned by Trevor Wilkinson would no longer be produced. But those doubts were largely erased when the TVR V8S was introduced.

The TVR V8S was a true sports car, with a backbone frame and thick, welded steel pipes providing structural stability. The suspension consisted of double wishbone suspension systems at front and rear, giving it amazing cornering prowess. Mounted behind the cabin was a 4.0-liter V8 that pumped out 240 HP, making the lightweight car a virtual road rocket. Thanks to its flamboyant-yet-classical body style, which was reminiscent of sports cars of the 1950s, this vehicle became very popular among TVR lovers.

Later, it went to gain attention of the general public with its various body styles, and even when TVR gradually increased engine power, the structural foundation and suspension were left almost untouched because it had been so thoroughly engineered at the start. The admirable steering effort that garnered the phrase "a car for real men," was also left intact. Thanks partly to the TVR and others that demonstrated a representation of the enthusiast spirit, England came to be called the "home of the sports car."
