Edgar buys a dreamBut can he make it a reality?
Les Edgar, a British entrepreneur known primarily for his work with video games, has purchased the rights to the TVR name and blueprints to the firm’s existing cars from it’s now-former owner Nikolai Alexandrovich Smolenski. Edgar has gotten involved with Aston Martin in the past when it made its return to GT racing.
Though the purchase amount is undisclosed, Edgar promises a well-thought out business model stating that a lot of planning and money has gone into this decision and that “you can’t let these great brands disappear or go abroad.”
Whether this purchase becomes a reality or not is to be determined as many skeptics have pointed out that while many rumours have come about of TVR’s return, the firm has been dormant since 2006.
