TVR Brand to Return with New Griffith!
|   Thursday, September 14, 2017
After years of absence, the British brand TVR (the abbreviation stemming from Trevor Wilkinson, the company owner’s name, and his first garage having the letters T V and R) returns with a new model called Griffith, which was revealed at Goodwood. The current head of TVR, Les Edgar, took over the company, which is in the gutter right now, from the Russian entrepreneur Nicolai Smolenschii in 2013.

In 2015 the first model was announced. The Griffith name was chosen because it has the best known name in the history of TVR.
The first TVR Griffith, appeared in 1963 with a V8 under the hood, and the connection of the new model to the classic one also refers to the engine, which is also a V8.

The engine was developed by Cosworth engineers, based on the naturally aspirated V8 unit, with a displacement of 5.0 liters, found on the Ford Mustang GT. On the new Griffith TVR this engine develops around 500 hp.

The drive is only coupled to the 6-speed manual transmission. The new Griffith can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds, from 0 to 161 km/h in 6 seconds and a bit, and can reach a maximum speed of 322 km/h. Pretty good results overall.
The bodywork is made of carbon fiber, which has a torsional stiffness of 22,000 Nm! Thanks to this architecture, the new Griffith will also have a convertible version without the need to reinforce the structure.

The TVR Griffith Launch Edition will be limited to 500 copies, costing less than 90,000 British Pounds (about 98,000 euros) - a highly competitive price! Moreover, according to Les Edgar, TVR will return to competitions!
