TVR unveiled the upgraded S version for the Tuscan at the Birmingham Motor Show and proved that the British sports car was alive and well.

Based on the experience gathered from the Tuscan Challenge, TVR improved the production version with a few significant changes. It featured a revised chassis geometry, which led to less bump steer and improved road-holding. Since it was designed for a spirited driver and as a car for track-days, the carmaker added 322 mm (12.6") disc brakes at the front and 298 mm (11.7") at the rear. The stiffened suspension also counted for fast cornering, even though that damaged the comfort on regular streets.

TVR worked on the bodywork to reduce drag and improve the downforce. At the front, there was a splitter under the car's nose. Its four headlamps from the fenders were covered with clear lenses and featured HID bulbs. Another essential modification was for the rear part of the car, where TVR engineers' were influenced by the LeMans experience. They raised the trunk lid and ended it with a ducktail. The lower part of the bodywork was also aerodynamically profiled to enhance the airflow.

Inside, the carmaker installed a Momo racing wheel in front of the instrument cluster with its white dials. TVR fitted sport bucket-seats, but it knew that its future owner would replace them with racing seats for special events.

Under the hood, the carmaker placed an upgraded version of its straight-six engine, offering 400 hp from the four-liters displacement. Strangely though, it featured a five-speed manual gearbox only.
