TVR gets Gordon Murray’s iStream carbon

Gordon Murray Design has been chosen as a partner by TVR for the design and development of the company’s new sports car and also to be a part of the celebration of this British brand’s 70th anniversary.

The team at Gordon Murray Design have worked closely with the TVR team to deliver a vehicle which meets all the class-leading and exacting criteria set-down by TVR in terms of weight and torsional stiffness.

TVR chose Gordon Murray Design’s iStream carbon manufacturing system to help deliver these performance values. iStream carbon is Gordon Murray Design’s premium version of iStream and it brings Formula One technology and materials within reach of the everyday motorist. “This technology has been the enabler in producing a sports car some 300kg lighter than its class opposition alongside delivering new levels of torsional rigidity,” the company comments.

“The new car brings new standards of engineering and quality to TVR products and the world-class design and prototyping team have worked very closely with the two UK companies who both share Gordon Murray Design’s drive towards producing engineering product to exacting standards. Chasestead engineering and Formaplex have played a great role in the production of the sports car.”
