Widebody TVR Griffith Is The Very Definition Of Over-The-Top

The new TVR Griffith should reach the hands of customers next year, and these renderings from adry53customs show what it could look like with a bold widebody kit and a host of other modifications.

TVR unveiled the Griffith in September 2017 with the intention of commencing deliveries early this year. Sadly, that date has been pushed back until 2020 as the Welsh government purchased a three per cent share in the car manufacturer, meaning it was required to take EU-wide bids for the renovation of its factory in Ebbw Vale, South Wales.

Will the Griffith be worth the wait? On paper, it certainly seems fitting of a TVR badge and is shaping up to be unlike any other sports car on the market.

For starters, it uses a Ford-sourced, naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 tweaked by Cosworth and pumping out 500 HP sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a Tremec Magnum XL six-speed transmission. Aiding in the vehicle’s performance is the fact that it only weighs 1,250 kg (2,755 lbs), giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 400 HP per tonne, while the 50-50 weight distribution should provide a balanced handling.

The Griffith presented in these renderings show the sports car with a set of flared arches and gold aftermarket wheels. In addition, the ride height has been lowered significantly and there’s a massive ducktail spoiler stretching off the rear, although the show stealers are the eight independent throttle bodies popping out of the hood.

    Does it come in black; they should have chosen black over this. Looks amazing!

    Sacrilege!

    This looks mental but if it comes with traction control, easy/logical door handles, and isn’t constantly trying to kill you as you drive along then TVR has lost its way.

    Thinking back to the days when an over the top TVR was still tastefully done.

      They really were in another league. The leathers, the interiors, that cosy feeling inside. I saw and sat in a few while in UK. Unique things.

    Always loved these. Batman’s daily driver!

    Too bad it won’t ever make it to the States. Idiots would be wrecking these everywhere in California.

    SEMA-worthy modifications aside, the only thing out of the question is the ejecting side exhaust pipe.
    As well as the ground clearance!
    If they … could modify the above to a more legal, approved to hit the streets mentality … well … what can I say?!
    Some like it hot, wide and wild!!!!!!!!!!
