To give appropriate levels of performance, the new Griffith has a 5.0-litre V8 engine, which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. When you consider that, alongside the approach to driver aids-there's antilock braking and switchable traction control-it's nearly as if the Griffith is the very opposite of most new cars we write about, which keep getting bigger, heavier, and more automated.
Also, TVR is said to have set a power to weight target of 400bhp/tonne for the Griffith.
It will be priced from £90,000 in the United Kingdom with 500 Griffith Launch Editions scheduled for production in late 2018. This time, it has brought in Gordon Murray - the creator of the McLaren F1 - to design the auto.
However, TVR wants to pitch the Griffith as sports auto with old-school fun for driving purists.
The first TVR for a decade has been uncovered - and it's a £90,000 sports vehicle that will top 200mph. The chassis consists of a carbon composite bonded to steel and aluminium, with body panels also in composite. Although some of those traditional flowing, smooth TVR lines have been sacrificed to provide air intakes and outlets in the front apron and behind both front and rear arches in a bid to enhance the aerodynamics as best they can. The LE will be offered with unique 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, as well as unique paint colours. That means a lightened flywheel, bespoke clutch as well as dry-sump lubrication. Suspension is by double wishbone, with adjustable coil-over dampers and concentric springs front and back. Specifications for standard cars are forthcoming, but the portrait-orientated infotainment touchscreen (this rests above physical knobs for the air-conditioning) should be standard. Despite its compact dimensions, TVR says that the interior offers enough space and comfort for long-distance and everyday driving. The company went defunct in 2006, and was resurrected in 2013.
The Griffith name was previously used on the 1960s Griffith 200 and 400 and the 1990s Griffith, and this auto also signals the resurgence of TVR as a brand.
According to TVR chairman Les Edgar, who four years ago led the consortium that bought the company from then-owner, Russian Nikolai Smolenski, the new Griffith embodies TVR's long-standing ethos of the "Spirit of Driving" - the principle of using engineering rather than electronics to deliver an involving driving interface where the driver will always be fully in control.
Although exact figures haven't been revealed, TVR says the new Griffith produces 400bhp-per-tonne.
