The TVR Zante was another wedge styled prototype which was built by TVR in 1970. The Zante crudely resembles a Reliant Scimitar GTE which went into production 5 years later.
The car made its debut at the 1971 New York Motor Show being fitted with a Ford 289 cubic inch small block V8 engine mated to a 4-speed gearbox.
The car was based on the mechanicals which eventually became the M series. For many years this car was being restored by a former TVRCC secretary but eventually he had to abandoned the restoration due to ill health. At that point it became known that he did not own the car but that it was still registered with TVR Engineering. It was returned to Bristol Avenue where it still resides.
