This car is an important part of TVR's racing history
In 1985, TVR Engineering Ltd had been developing a new lightweight body design to be combined with a high-performance V8 engine to take on the competition in the 750 Motor Club Sporting Cars Magazine Road Going sports series and BARC (NW) Sports Saloon Challenge in the production class.
The resulting 420 S.E.A.C. (Special Equipment Aramid Composite) utilised a mixture of kevlar and fibreglass for the bodywork to keep weight down but not at the expense of rigidity. The bodywork had a shortened front end and incorporated a glass cover over the indicators, driving lights and licence plate. Widened front wheel arches bulge over special Compomotive split-rim road wheels front and rear on Bridgestone 225/50 x 15 tyres and flared sill panels run into the extended rear arches, with the back of the vehicle being dominated by the aggressive wide spoiler covering the entire boot lid.
More information about this car and further photographs will follow shortly.
