Covers come off the new TVR

Published 08 September 2017

TVR has unveiled its all-new sports car, the TVR Griffith, at the Goodwood Revival. It’s the first new TVR to be launched since the company was resurrected in British hands.

Employing Gordon Murray Design’s iStream architecture with carbon composite structure and body panels, the new Griffith weighs 1250kg, but it said to offer exceptional torsional rigidity and a perfect 50:50 weight distribution.

Powering the new TVR Griffith is a naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre Cosworth-enhanced V8, which enables 400bhp/tonne and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The new TVR Griffith achieves a top speed of more than 200mph, and accelerates from 0-60mph in less than four seconds.

TVR boss Les Edgar said, ‘This is unmistakably a TVR, a British muscle car that’s as awesome and brutal as it is charismatic and refined. Importantly, the new TVR offers levels of technical sophistication, comfort, reliability and practicality never seen by the brand before.’

This new TVR Griffith is presented in Launch Edition specification, which includes a full leather interior and custom alloy wheels, as well as Launch Edition paint options and a bespoke infotainment system. Starting from £90,000, production of the new TVR Griffith Launch Edition will begin in late 2018.
