New TVR Griffith Looks Even Better In The Flesh [31 Pics + Video]

Following a set of rather low-quality photos, TVR has released a new gallery of the reborn Griffith live from the Goodwood Revival’s floor.

TVR is finally back with an all-new Griffith, a lightweight two-seater sports car with the engine at the front and a manual gearbox to whip it.

Under the bonnet sits a Ford-sourced 5.0-liter V8 upgraded by Cosworth sending around 500hp via a Tremec Magnum XL six-speed manual gearbox to the rear axle. TVR claims an unladen weight of 1250kg, meaning the new Griffith will offer a power-to-weight ratio of 400hp/tonne while weight distribution is a perfect 50-50.

0-62mph (100km/h) comes in less than four seconds while flat out, the new TVR Griffith will do over 200mph (321km/h), placing it in the upper league of sports cars.

The chassis uses Gordon Murray’s iStream process, meaning a steel and aluminum frame with bonded carbon composite sections. The bodywork is also mostly made out of carbon fiber to help TVR achieve its targets.

The first 500 examples of the new TVR Griffith will be badged as special ‘Launch Edition’ models, priced at under £90,000 each. Deliveries are expected to begin in early 2019.
