The Tamora is fitted with a TVR's in-house 'Speed Six', a DOHC 3605 cc six-cylinder engine rated at 350 hp (261 kW) at 7200 rpm and 290 lb⋅ft (393 N⋅m) of torque at 5500 rpm, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Brake rotors are 12.0 inches (300 mm) up front, and 11.1 inches (280 mm) in the back. Front calipers are AP Racing, the rears being a direct fit from many Ford vehicles. The suspension is a double wishbone setup at all four corners. Standard wheels are 16×7 inch aluminium, with 225/50ZR-16 Avon ZZ3 tires. 
The Tamora is built on a 93-inch (2,400 mm) wheelbase, and the car's overall profile is 154.5 inches (3,920 mm) long, 67.5 inches (1,710 mm) inches wide and 47.4 inches (1,200 mm) high. It weighs 2,337 lb (1,060 kg) with 58/42 weight distribution. Keeping with the TVR tradition, the Tamora lacks driving aids such as traction control and ABS as well as air bags.
According to Autocar magazine, the Tamora is capable of accelerating 0–60 mph in 4.2 seconds, and completes the quarter mile in 12.5 seconds at 119 mph (192 km/h). Top speed is over 170 mph (270 km/h).
The Tamora also provided the base for the T350 coupé.
