There's no doubting that the new TVR is a snappy-looking vehicle.
The problem is, when I read all this I think: "I wasn't reborn yesterday." And sadly the same can be said for TVR.
The world has moved on. The Speed Six engine was introduced in the second half of the 1990s when oil and petrol were much cheaper than they are now. Oil was selling for as low as $12 a barrel in 1999. Ten years later it's above $130. That doesn't sound like the most propitious time to bring back a 4-litre engine.
Each time we herald the grand return of the great British car maker, we forget about the amount of time that goes into developing today's cars to provide airbags, ABS, traction control and Euro 5 emissions compatibility, to name four minor engineering obstacles.
