TVR’s M-Series was the first clean-sheet design from the Martin Lilley era as head of TVR. In many ways it brought TVR from cottage builder status to full-fledged sports car manufacturer. Its look was sleek and modern by early ‘70s standards—influenced heavily by the Tuscan V8. A trio of engine options was available in the M. Base model 1600M’s carried a 1.6L Ford inline-4. A 6-cylinder option came first in the form of the 3000M which carried a European Ford V6, but it did not meet US emissions standards. For stateside sales TVR swapped in the smoother, more reliable, and emissions-compliant British Leyland 2.5L inline-6 from the Triumph TR6 to create the 2500M. The resulting M-Series had a 5-year run and became the best-selling TVR ever to that point.

The Automodello™ M-Series precision replica represents the first 1:43 scale model of one of TVR’s most memorable and admired vehicles. It is also the first TVR for Automodello following successful editions of the Griffith Series 200 which itself was based on the TVR Grantura. The M is a car no TVR aficionado can ignore, and the Automodello M-Series replica is a model no scale collector should be without. This is Automodello's first Homage Edition release.
