Dvuhdverka equipped with a V8 engine: its size is not disclosed, but known results in metric units – 487 horsepower. The unit is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, which transmits the traction on the rear wheels.
Design Legend 480 came up with the head of TVR stylist Damian McTaggart, who in his time had a hand in the exterior of such sports cars like the TVR Tuscan, Cerbera and Sagaris.
