The TVR S Series was announced at the 1986 British International Motor Show. Due to a massive positive response, the car went into production in less than 12 months, with 250 pre-manufacture orders. This was Peter Wheeler's first major development since buying the company from Martin Lilley, and the turning point in TVR's fortunes. Between 1986 and 1994 2,604 S Series cars were made; 410 of these were of the V8S variety.
