TVR Griffith Heralds British Sports Car Maker's Return
So the new TVR Griffith has been unveiled at Goodwood Revival and it's getting quite the reception
09 September, 2017, 11:37
A new TVR, the brand's first release for more than 10 years, on PistonHeads - a website that's legendary for its relationship with TVR.
What you can't see is that the vehicle has a flat floor, part of its race-inspired "ground effect" aerodynamics package.
Reviving the name first used by TVR back in 1991, the all-new model has been revealed at the Goodwood Revival. Promising optimal 50:50 weight distribution, the Griffith boasts a carbon composite structure and body panels, with Gordon Murray Design Limited creating a modern and aerodynamic exterior skin.
The result of all this is a claimed sub-4-second 0-to-60-mph time, a 0-to-100-mph time of around 6 seconds, and a 200-mph top speed.
The new Griffith is powered by a Ford-sourced, front-mounted 5-litre V8 engine that's been modified by Cosworth to produce 373kW. That means a lightened flywheel, bespoke clutch as well as dry-sump lubrication. In short, the new Griffith stays true to the spirit of the original Griffith and all previous TVRs. TVR claims 60 miles per hour arrives in less than 4 seconds with the six-speed manual transmission, and if you have enough track to keep going, you'll break the 200-mph barrier. Here's a video of the Griffith'sengine being tested in an older TVR.
The suspension uses double wishbones at either end, with adjustable coil-over dampers and concentric springs.
To comply with European Type Approval standards, the Griffith comes with ABS and a configurable traction control system. Despite its compact dimensions, TVR says that the interior offers enough space and comfort for long-distance and everyday driving.
Entrepreneur Les Edgar bought the remains of the company in 2013.
Les Edgar, TVR chairman, said: "Today's unveiling is the culmination of almost three years of tireless work by the team, and we're all proud to be able to show the new TVR Griffith to the world".
"This is unmistakably a TVR, a British muscle auto that's as awesome and brutal as it is charismatic and refined", said Edgar.
Production of the new TVR is scheduled to begin at least a year from now, but the company has already secured customers for all 500 of its Launch Edition special models.
The TVR Griffith Launch Edition starts at £90,000, and "a small number of allocations" remain available to order. Production of the auto is scheduled for late 2018.
