WEDGETASTIC TAS­MIN

New Zealand Classic Car - - FEATURE -

Oliver Win­ter­bot­tom — of Lo­tus de­sign fame — came up with a new car, and the Tas­min was launched in 1980. The prob­lem with the wedge was that its straight-cut looks quickly went out of fash­ion, and, when sales didn’t quite meet ex­pec­ta­tions, Peter Wheeler stepped in, push­ing for­ward with faster and more hard­core V8-engined mod­els. Fur­ther de­vel­op­ment led to the most ex­treme 450 SEAC, and raw per­for­mance be­came syn­ony­mous with the TVR brand.
