TVR Trident Spyder

The TVR Trident Spyder designed by Trevor Fiore for Carrozzeria Fissore.

Vehicle Overview

The TVR Trident Spyder made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1965, alongside its coupé counterpart, marking a significant milestone for the British automaker. Built upon the chassis of the Grantura Mark III, this convertible exemplified TVR’s commitment to innovation and performance in the sports car market. Designed by Trevor Fiore and featuring bodywork crafted by Carrozzeria Fissore, the Trident Spyder boasted a striking aesthetic characterized by sleek lines and aerodynamic contours. Its convertible design added an element of exhilaration to the driving experience, inviting enthusiasts to embrace the open road with unparalleled style and sophistication. Powering the Trident Spyder was a formidable Ford 4.7-liter V8 engine, delivering exhilarating performance and a thrilling exhaust note that echoed the car’s racing pedigree. With the engine nestled under the hood, the Trident Spyder offered a perfect balance of power and agility, ensuring an unforgettable driving experience with every twist and turn of the road. The Trident Spyder garnered significant interest, particularly from US distributors Dick Monnich and Jack Griffith, who recognized its potential to captivate automotive enthusiasts on both sides of the Atlantic. Encouraged by their enthusiasm, TVR proceeded to produce four prototypes of the Trident Spyder, each showcasing the brand’s dedication to craftsmanship and engineering excellence. However, despite the initial excitement surrounding the Trident models, TVR’s ambitions were ultimately thwarted by financial difficulties, leading to the company’s bankruptcy. As a result, the Trident Spyder, along with its coupé counterpart, never entered serial production, remaining as rare and elusive examples of TVR’s ambitious foray into the sports car market. Although the Trident Spyder’s journey was cut short, its legacy lives on as a testament to TVR’s ingenuity and vision. Today, these prototypes serve as cherished relics of a bygone era, reminding enthusiasts of TVR’s enduring spirit and the indelible mark it left on the automotive landscape.
