Wales is fast becoming the new favourite of revived British sports car makers. TVR is the most recent to confirm it will build its new cars there, one month after Aston Martin announced it’s opening a new manufacturing facility in the Vale of Glamorgan

TVR will make its new sports car a bit further north, in the Ebbw Vale, to be precise. And the Welsh government is shelling out to help.

Yup, over the next 5 yrs, a reported £30mill of Welsh government spending will be directed TVR’s way, with the hope that a bright new high-end sports car maker will attract additional new businesses, tourists – and therefore jobs – to the area, paying off the investment handsomely.
