Two versions of the car are available the T400R which has a 400 bhp 4 litre engine and the ultimate T440R. The engine of the T440R is a derivative of TVR's own Speed Six engine but has been extensively developed in order to produce a huge 440 bhp. It is bigger than any other TVR six cylinder engine at 4.2 litres and has a raft of high tech motorsport componentry. 60 mph is attained in under 4 seconds but it is from there to its top speed of 215 mph that the T440R really leaves the competition standing. To cope with all that power, the car has not just a new chassis, but a new type of chassis. Designed from the ground up with the aid of sophisticated CAD/CAM software, the rigidity of the steel chassis is added to significantly by the race-type rollcage and the use of aluminium honeycomb and carbon fiber for the floor. Also a first for a roadgoing TVR is to have adjustable dampers whereby customers will be able to finetune the suspension set up of their T440Rs for road or circuit use. Brakes are powerful ventilated discs all round with four piston callipers at the front with a high performance option of even bigger discs and six piston callipers for even better stopping ability.

You can count the number of road cars that have had all-carbonfibre bodywork on the fingers of one hand? Mclaren F1, Ferrari F40 and now TVR T440R. More usually found in the aerospace or motorsport industries, this material is expensive but is extraordinarily light and strong.
aerodynamics have played an increasingly significant role in the design of TVRs over the last few years and the T400R and T440R take this to the logical next level. A lot of attention has been paid to drag and lift with the result that its coupe shape owes most of its form to the demands of the aerodynamicists. A phenomenally low drag co-efficient of 0.32 is the result of all this attention to detail and its virtually flat floor, front splitter and rear diffuser work together to give it unparalleled high-speed stability.
