Designer Gordon Murray and TVR Chairman Les Edgar tell us about the TVR brand and introduce their new baby, the monstrous TVR Griffith. The V8 is expected to make roughly 480 hp and paired with a six-speed manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels, true to TVR's classic formula.
The chassis construction of the TVR Griffith, however, is very 2017.
Under the angular hood, as promised, is a Cosworth tuned 5-litre V8 and it outputs 500hp ― not bad at all for a motor without a turbo helping to boost power per cylinder. This motor is dry-sumped and set low into the Griffith's chassis for a ideal 50-50 weight distribution.
We've already seen the chassis, a mix of steel tubes with composite panels (carbon fiber sandwiching an aluminum honeycomb) bonded on for stiffness.
It's no slouch either, with a 0-60mph time of less than four seconds and a top speed of 200mph.
Official: 2018 TVR Griffith
Designed by Gordon Murray, him of McLaren F1 fame, the 2018 Griffith has a front-engined layout, a full ground-effect aerodynamic package and 50:50 weight distribution. Suspension is by double wishbone, with adjustable coil-over dampers and concentric springs front and back. The company went defunct in 2006, and was resurrected in 2013. Unlike the TVR sportscars of yore, the new TVR Griffith will ship with anti-lock brakes, airbags, and traction control - a result of today's more heavily-legislated roadways. The Griff does also have ABS and configurable traction control: blame the European Union law-makers if you have a problem with that. It's strictly a two-seater though, and the cabin is geared towards the driver - implementing a bespoke instrument cluster, as well as a TVR-specific infotainment system.
Prices for the first 500 Launch Edition spec cars start from £90,000, with production set to begin in late 2018, and first deliveries in early 2019.
TVR chairman Les Edgar said: "Today's unveiling is the culmination of almost three years of tireless work by the team, and were all proud to be able to show the new TVR Griffith to the world".
Just a few days after partially revealing its comeback vehicle in a teaser, British sportscar maker - TVR, has officially taken the wraps off the new Griffith at the Goodwood Revival, 2017. Importantly, the new TVR offers levels of technical sophistication, comfort, reliability and practicality never seen by the brand before'. It will be fitted with bespoke Launch Edition wheels measuring 19 inches in diameter at the front and 20 inches at the rear.
