1972-1977 TVR 1600M


Overview

Cleverly restyled from the waist down, the M-series TVRs (the M is for TVR boss Martin Lilley) were wider and nine inches longer, mostly in the nose, and built on a dynamically improved, stronger and better protected chassis. Still using the Capri GT ‘Kent’ engine, the 1600M was a poor seller compared to its more powerful brethren and was dropped in 1973 after less than a year on sale, but reintroduced with a mild restyle and bigger alloys in 1975 in the wake of an energy crisis. The return of such concerns once again makes the 1600M an interesting alternative.
