Of course everything that is on the Internet is true, so supposedly...
TVR's new engine is loosely based on the Coyote V8 ONLY in the sense that they are using Ford's Coyote Aluminator version off the shelf from Ford Performance. That version of the Coyote is done in aluminum to reduce weight and is certified to use a bolt-on supercharger for up to 700 horsepower.
Cosworth has made NO internal changes and is designing the exhaust headers because the new TVR will supposedly have side pipes. Cosworth is also tinkering with fuel-injection programming, but the engine is an off-the-shelf Ford unit.
One has to wonder if the Aluminator will show up in a Hellcat chasing Shelby Mustang GT500KR.
TVR is also wisely using the Mustang's transmission, differential, and probably wiring harness. That should give the new TVR some major durability as well as the Mustang's track apps.
Les Edgar got testy when someone characterized the new TVR as a "Mustang", but that was probably due to the wise use of component borrowing.
Clearly, other Ford parts bin scavenging would make developing the new car easy given that the big deal is the Gordon Murray chassis.
Who knows--with TVR--what is real and what is vapor given the illustration they circulated wasn't even theirs to circulate. LOL.
All you need is love and aTVR.
