by Russell Hayes

Haynes’s highly respected ‘Classic Makes’ series would not be complete without an account of TVR, maker of sports cars for over 60 years. Blending history and technical information with practical guidance in the form of driving impressions and buying hints, this book is a complete study of the company and its cars. It is a rollercoaster ride as the Blackpool-based company has had many ups and downs, but through it all the sheer charisma and flamboyance of TVR’s cars.

Super P
I bought this because I wanted to know more about this iconic marque, another small-scale British auto company that has unfortunately disappeared. The book is beautifully illustrated, it is well-written but not overloaded with fluff, and provides a well-documented history of a company that was always on the precipice of failure, but never failed to push the envelope of progress. It may be brief, but so was the history of TVR--makes me want to find one for restoration.
I was very impressed withe the quality of this volume, and the great info continued within. The book covers all the models, with nice selection/balance of pictures and text.
This book covers all the TVR models up through the Smolenski years. There is not a great deal of information about all the trials and tribulations of the company, but it covers every model. There are many photos in the book that I've not seen published in any other book, including the photo of the 2500M crash test.
For a read of the nearly unknown marque, TVR, it opened lots of neat stories about the car. I like it
