TVR 3000M

The 1972 3000M sat at the top of TVR's new "M" range of two seater sports coupes. The 3000M shared its sturdy chassis and purposeful styling with the 1600M and 2500M along with the same front disc/rear drum braking system.

Underneath the bonnet of the 3000M sat the venerable Ford Capri 3.0 litre V6 engine, this unit developed 138bhp which equated to a top speed of over 120mph. From 1975 an overdrive gearbox was offered as an optional extra, however an automatic box was never listed. The 3000M remained in production until 1979 when it was replaced by the new Tasmin model.  Practical Classics January 1999 - Featuring Buyers Guide TVR M-Series.  Click Here to view in our shop.
