New TVR Griffith Gets Official

1995 Mc Laren F1

Clearly it's not talking about the Ford-sourced crate V8 when discussing cutting edge, but more of that later.

The long-awaited new auto carrying the name TVR with its long association with Blackpool, has at last been unveiled three years after the company's revival was officially announced. The original Griffith ceased production in 2002.

The interior looks just as special as we'd expect from a TVR.

"Employing Gordon Murray Design's innovative iStream architecture with carbon composite structure and body panels, the new TVR Griffith weighs just 1250kg, offers exceptional torsional rigidity and a ideal * a href="#" onclick="yt.www.watch.player.seekTo (50*60+50);return false;" *50:50 weight distribution.

Georgia orders compulsory evacuation of coast as Irma roars closer
Students were evacuated Thursday morning, and the campus will be closed Friday, the report added. The powerful storm, now at Category 5 , is expected to reach SC late Monday.

This side-by-side image with a classic Griffith shows the new model will be quite compact - the TVRs of decades past look bigger in photos than in real life - and styled like a small McLaren. TVR says that the electric power assisted steering has been carefully tuned to offer maneuverability "without compromising feel or stability". There are 370mm ventilated and floating discs with six-piston calipers at the front and 350mm two-piece discs at the rear with four-piston calipers. Its wheels are 20 inches in diameter at the rear and 19 at the front. The Griff does also have ABS and configurable traction control: blame the European Union law-makers if you have a problem with that. It too was powered by a 5.0-litre V8. Edgar says that while every auto fan has a TVR story, he also wanted to recreate "every man's super vehicle, with big bang for buck" referring to the marque's reputation for - at least off the lights - beating more expensive cars. The engine management has also been tweaked for more power and a broader range of power and torque.

It produces 480bhp, which combined with the car's light weight will give it incredible performance.

That front-mounted engine is mounted low and as far back as possible, driving a six-speed manual Tremec Magnum XL gearbox. Edgar and the team driving TVR's resurrection want a auto that's useable and civilised, a GT with serious fire in its belly. They will come with a full leather interior and in a wide rage of colours.

Although petrol sports cars are very much in TVR's plans, Chasey did accept that alternative fuel options will have to be considered at some point: "We can't put our head in the sand though and we are aware we will need an alternative powertrain eventually".
