Today, we are going to focus on the TVR Typhon. Launched in 2002, the vehicle experienced quite a short production run and in the end only 3 road-legal Typhons were made.
What made the vehicle special were its performance and speed. To this day it remains the fastest car to ever be produced by the brand. Powered by a TVR Seed Six engine producing 400 bhp (4000cc), the car was capable of reaching a top speed of around 200 mph. It was extremely powerful and it made headlines back when it was first introduced. Originally, the Typhon was planned to remain in production for much longer, however it ended up costing the brand too much money so a decision was made to discontinue the model.
It would’ve been interesting to see how different the Typhon would look now has it remained in production to this day. Vehicle have a tendency to evolve over the years so it’s always sad to see a car with a lot of potential axed before it has the opportunity to grow and evolve. We for one are fans of the vehicle as it’s a fantastic example of how much the British car industry has grown since its beginning. Some of our brands are now producing vehicles that are world-renowned for their quality, which is fantastic. What are your thoughts on the Typhon? Are you a fan?
