Since this topic generated quite a bit of interest when it was up for voting,
I've decided to run it along with the current contest (http://www.carspyshots.net/showthread.php?t=19788) seeing as they complement each other so well.

TVR (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TVR) is a historic British marque that has been in a constant state of limbo over the past few years, the brand has frequently changed hands and could never really find their footing. They have however managed to produce some of the most desirable vehicles the world has ever seen. Designers, are you up for the challenge of breathing new life into this storied British brand.

Good luck designers!!! This contest will end on Jan 6.
Also, make sure you check out the other Contest:

Design Challenge: Sports Car Icon; The British Roadster (http://www.carspyshots.net/showthread.php?t=19788)

AND, don't forget to post your development sketches and ideations in the Contest Development Thread (http://www.carspyshots.net/showthread.php?t=16571)

A TVR return would be delightful. Griffith anyone?:devil1:
I wish they would return with visceral coupe and roadster in a Mustang GT / BOSS 302 price range. The coolest thing ironically about a TVR is their lack of sophistication. Can't wait to see the ideas.

It's been a while and I'm a bit rusty, figured I'd whip up something quick for practice. Here's my entry the TVR Tangiers a compact, lightweight V6 runabout for everyday driving.

AudiR8-3 Very recognizable as a TVR, along with its menacing looks. While some darker shading would have been nice to make it stand out more, the prospective isn't too shabby.

AXIS-2 While it has some daring details, it may be too "blockish". The roof line is sporting, though
