Mr. Trevor Wilkinson, TVR founder, has passed away on June 6th in Menorca, where he lived, at the age of 85. We miss the founder maybe of the most representative English supercar brand in the world, the one which has always proved the essence of the British passion for cars: power, litghtness, performance, style.
And the most sad thing is that he did not see his factory in good hands yet.

TVR production incredibly goes on? That's what we've surprisingly found in Piston Heads forum. Hexham Horseless Carriages, one of the most important dealers for TVR cars in UK, has actually for sale a TVR Sagaris which is currently under construction (the image pictures exactley the car we're talking about while is going to be completed). It seems that somewhere in Blackpool, there are at least four cars under construction: this Sagaris, another one Sagaris, an MK II (the one not with side exhausts), and two Tuscan S Coupé-Targa.
After all, you've to consider that when production was stopped at Blackpool factory, technicians were at that time engaged in assembling cars and of course there have been many components to create some other car.
What do you know about the matter? What's up with the ownership and the future of the brand? During the 24h Du Mans coverage the Eurosport commentators mentioned that TVR had officially gone into history books.
