1991-1993 TVR V8S specifications


It was inevitable that the Rover V8 would find its way into an ‘S’, and it proved an effective way to bridge the gap between the outgoing ‘wedges’ and the new generation of TVRs that kicked off properly in 1992. That’s not to dismiss the V8S, which is a fantastic car in its own right, benefiting from a stiffer chassis, rear disc brakes, larger front ones and a limited-slip diff. A large bonnet bulge sets it apart from the V6-engined S-series cars, but on the road the V8S is streets ahead and should be considered more of a match for the Chimaera that replaced it.
