TVR have revealed their modern update to the Griffith – and their not holding back either!
Side-exit exhausts, sculpted front wheelarches, and modern body that in my opinion looks like a cross between a MX5 and GT86– whilst staying true to TVR’s old-school recipe.
Under the hood is no slouch either, in it goes a 5.0-litre quad-cam V8, usually seen in Ford’s Mustang.
It has had a bit of an overhaul mind you by the lads at Cosworth to deliver more power and torque.
It’s dry sumped to lower the centre of gravity, and has 50/50 weight distribution.
Driving lovers will rejoice at the fact that the new Griffith has no auto transmission either – coming with a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual, with a custom lightweight flywheel and clutch, and bespoke gear ratios.
It’s light too – With a dry weight of 1,250kg, boasting a power-to-weight ratio of 400bhp-per-tonne – 0-100mph in six and a bit seconds surreal, with a 200mph top speed.
Price is £90,000, a big step up from TVR’s of old but then again this is a TVR on a whole new level!
TVR has sold almost all of the 500 Launch Editions with production due to start in a year or so’s time, at a factory in Ebbw Vale.
