New TVR Griffith Looks The Business With Chameleon Paint

New images of the intriguing TVR Griffith have surfaced online, showing the sports car with an eye-catching chameleon paint scheme.

Before the firm’s untimely demise and subsequent resurrection, one of the defining aspects of the brand was its willingness to paint vehicles in all manner of shades of colors. Among the brand’s most recognizable was its host of flip paints which change color depending on the angle at which they’re viewed.

The paint of this new Griffith looks like a mixture of pink and purple when viewed from the side while the front bumper has hints of green and blue. Look at the sports car from behind and you’ll see a combination of pink, purple, green, blue, and even gold, particularly on the rear wheel arches. The look is a far cry from the simple shade of red that adorned the initial show car.

Joining the TVR’s eye-catching looks are some seriously impressive performance figures. TVR claims the Ford-sourced 5.0-liter V8 tuned by Cosworth delivers roughly 500 hp, propelling the 1250 kg (2755 lbs) car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than four seconds and through to a top speed exceeding 200 mph (321 km/h).

Prices for the TVR Griffith Launch Edition start at under £90,000 and the first customers are expected to take delivery in the first quarter of 2019.

    How does that Exhaust work? Is it plumbed from front to back and then back to the front? I dig the Rear end, unique for sure.

    I love it.

    • JimmyK

      I also love the poster behind ” TVR IS BACK ” !

  • I love that the new TVR didn’t forget their looks.

  • eb110americana

    That certainly looks a lot less mundane (read, “more TVR”) than their forgettable debut pics.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    This is a proper TVR.

  • Six Thousand Times

    That’s ridiculously garish and unnecessary. I want one just like it.

  • lagunas3ca

    Feeling more and more sorry for the Viper. As if it got tag-teamed by the 720S in front and LFA in back.

    • Vassilis

      Admittedly, the original Griffith wasn’t quite good looking either.

  • SteersUright

    Looks like a 10 year old, outdated, small production 3rd world “kit” car.
