Reborn TVR unveils first new car

TVR Griffith

An all-new TVR Griffith with supercar performance has been revealed at the Goodwood Revival.

Created in conjunction with Gordon Murray Design and utilising innovative iStream architecture with carbon composite structure and body panels, the new car weighs just 1250kg, offers exceptional torsional rigidity and features full ground effect and 50:50 weight distribution.

Powered by a 5.0-litre Cosworth-enhanced V8 producing 500bhp, it’s good for 0-62mph in under four seconds and a top speed of 200mph.

The Griffith is the first new TVR to be launched since the company was resurrected in British hands.

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

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

To celebrate the marque’s 70th anniversary, the car was accompanied by a display of historic TVRs at Goodwood Revival’s Earls Court Motor Show.

TVR was founded in 1947 and its famous models included the Griffith, Tuscan and Chimaera. The last time a TVR car was manufactured was in 2006.
