The Earl of March, originator and host of the Festival of Speed and Revival, said: “We are delighted that TVR will feature so strongly over the Revival weekend this year.
“It is entirely fitting that TVR, as such an iconic British marque, should unveil what will be a very exciting entrant to the global sports car market at our iconic British event and I very much look forward to welcoming them to the Revival in September.”
TVR has held back a small allocation of the 500 Launch Edition cars for the public unveiling, so will soon close the order book, before re-opening it on the 8 September.

ICONIC British sports car maker TVR will launch its eagerly awaited 200mph new TVR supercar to the public at the Goodwood Revival on 8-10 September.
Created in conjunction with Gordon Murray Design, the 1200 kg car promises incredible 200mph performance and 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds.
Gordon Murray has a track record of decades of innovative design in Formula 1, starting with Brabham and notably with over 20 years as technical director at McLaren, introducing a carbon fibre chassis to the sport and later producing the McLaren F1 road and race supercar.
With the special launch edition TVR being offered at under £90,000, anticipation and demand for the 400bhp per tonne, five-litre Cosworth developed V8-powered car is already at fever-pitch.
The unveiling of the car at the Goodwood Revival is a first for the world-renowned Sussex-based event.
The new car will go on display in the ‘Earls Court’ building at the Revival which is devoted to racing and lifestyle pre-1965 when the circuit closed to contemporary racing.
However the Earls Court Motor Show widens the timeframe with the latest models depicted as future concepts among older classics, and the new TVR will be showcased at the centre of a display which features a number of older, heritage TVRs, in celebration of the British marque’s 70th anniversary.
Speaking of the planned public launch, Les Edgar, Chairman of TVR said: “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.
“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.”
