Holden V8 Powered TVR Stars At Classic Car Show Manchester

TVR White Elephant Manchester Classic Car Show
TVR’s V8 Holden Bathurst Race engined ‘White Elephant’ is just one of the stars to appear at The Footman James ‪Classic Car‬ Show Manchester in September.

This one-off prototype built for Peter Wheeler (TVR Ex-MD) was to be his regular run-around.  The 5ltr Holder V8 was a race prep’d donation from the Holden Engine Company.

The White Elephant incorporates the nose from a previous prototype and is the first TVR ever to be modelled using quick drying expanding foam. She is also the first TVR to feature a horizontally mounted radiator and to have the rear number plate lit from inside the cabin.

Some of the old girl’s quirkier features include a countersunk dog basket located behind the passenger seat to accommodate Peter’s gun dog Ned and a hidden compartment to the rear of the cabin to accommodate his gun-boots, shotguns, cartridges and pheasants.

See this and many more superb TVRs, including one of the last Sagaris (below) ever produced, on the TVRCC stand in Hall 3 at the show.

Sept 17/18th
