The sole UK distributor of TVR original equipment parts has consolidated its businesses into one umbrella brand website called www.tvr-parts.com.
The new brand marks an evolution of the brand into a genuine aftermarket distributor, and builds upon the firm’s sole distributor channel for TVR owner support.
Indeed, TVR Parts Ltd is actually claiming it’s returned the official TVR brand to the UK marketplace and has the support of TVR Automotive itself. Managing Director Rob Simmons said: “After careful consideration of complex market needs and taking into account of all options, we are pleased to award TVR Parts Ltd with an exclusive licence.
“None of the old licence or distribution agreements remain in force and TVR Parts Ltd is now the sole source for TVR Genuine Parts.”
The site lists more than 2500 parts and the firm is offering TVR Car Club members extra discounts if they open up a (free) account.
It’s even promised to extend its parts coverage if demand is there.
It’s able to do this thanks to TVR’s Automotive’s launch of the TVR Genuine Parts brand – using stock from the Blackpool factory plus new parts make using the 10,000 original TVR CAD design archives it has in its library.
TVR: on the comeback trail?
The growth of TVR Parts Ltd, and the official support it has from the reborn TVR Automotive, is an interesting development for the TVR brand. In 2013, businessman Les Edgar successfully bought the TVR brand name from former Russian owner Nikolai Smolenski.
He’s now working on bringing back TVR cars: indeed, the TVR website (www.tvr.co.uk) says that the firm is “busy planning the thunderous arrival of new TVR cars.
“It will be a little while until we share our plans – sorry – but it would be wrong to announce anything before details are finalised.
“It WILL be worth the wait.”
TVR is, indeed, roaring back, then. While they wait, owners can now buy OE parts from an approved source to keep their existing cars running…
