New TVR Griffith sports auto revealed

New TVR Griffith sports auto revealed

The bodywork is composite and aluminum and has benefited from considerably more aerodynamic consideration than any previous TVR, including what's described as a "full ground-effect aerodynamic package" with a flat floor, a novelty for a front-engined auto.

Powering the new vehicle is a naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre Cosworth-enhanced V8, which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. In short, the new Griffith stays true to the spirit of the original Griffith and all previous TVRs.

The long-awaited new auto carrying the name TVR with its long association with Blackpool, has at last been unveiled three years after the company's revival was officially announced.

But it carries a name long associated with TVR, The Griffith. A six-speed Tremec manual gearbox is standard, and the suspension at each corner consists of control arms with adjustable coil-over dampers. With a dry weight of just 2,755 lbs (1,250 kg), the Griffith will accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in less than four seconds and keep on pulling all the way to 200 miles per hour.

Housing this is a chassis made of carbon fibre, developed by Gordon Murray Design, resulting in a weight of 1,250kg. 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.

TVR's wilfully bonkers interior ergonomics have been retired, and the new Griffith gets bespoke dials and a centrally mounted portrait infotainment screen. It's also incredibly light, tipping the scales at just 1250kg thanks to carbon composite body panels.

The version which was shown at Goodwood is actually the Launch Edition of the Griffith. The company has had what can only be described as an interesting ownership history, but its British owners acquired it from Russian entrepreneur Nikolay Smolensky in 2013.

TVR boss Les Edgar said: "This is the culmination of almost three years of tireless work and we're all proud as punch".

The TVR Griffith Launch Edition will cost from £90,000 and will feature exclusive paint options, details of which are yet to be revealed, with a limited allocation still available. "Importantly, the new TVR offers levels of technical sophistication, comfort, reliability and practicality never seen by the brand before". Production of the TVR Griffith is expected to start by the end of 2018.
