The Next TVR Griffith Was Just Announced & It's The Perfect Example Of Beauty & Brawn Co-Existing



If the British muscle TVR Griffith left your sports car dreams high and dry because it went out of production in 2002, it's time to revive them, because the TVR Griffith was revived recently at the Goodwood Revival. That's a lot of revival happening. TVR announced that it starts production of the sports car in 2018 and will make it to the roads by 2019. What TVR has done to the new two-seater coupe is enough to make grown men cry (and some women who like speed or innovative automobile design, in general).

The 2018 Griffith weighs 1250kg and is 4,314mm long, 1,850mm wide and 1,239mm tall with a low and flat floor, making it an extremely safe drive. The sports car employs the iStream technological platform, architectured by Gordon Murray Design, that incorporates super light carbon fibre paneling reinforced with steel frames, making the chassis super light yet extra strong. This simply means that the chassis can withstand high impact, without necessarily showing telltale signs of damage. Two rather refreshing features of the car are it's side venting exhausts placed behind front wheel arches and doors without handles implying futuristic electric opening and closing function. The interior is just as fascinating as the exterior, with its tasteful leather and alcantara upholstery and accents and a  minimal dash.

Now to the power specs, a 5 litre quad-cam Mustang Coyote V8 engine tuned by Cosworth, fuels the Griffith, giving it a whopping 400 pound-feet of torque. The powertrain is placed strategically behind the front axle, maintaining a 50/50 weight distribution and low centre of gravity, making it super stable even at the sharpest of curves. The Griffith marks a top speed of 322kmph and goes from 0-100kmph in a little over 4 seconds.

In order to reinforce stability and a facilitate a precision-oriented user experience, TFR installed a double wishbone suspension (double wishbone suspensions are known to give perfect simultaneous angling to the wheels so that even the most perilous drive is safe) at coil-over dampers and concentric springs in the rear wheel drive that is controlled by a fully electric power steering.  The braking system is made up of 6 piston front disc brakes and 4 piston rear disc brakes, and advanced ABS, of course. The fun lies in the fact that you can really put the muscle to test through 6 swift moves on the manual transmission.

Priced at Rs 75.65 lakhs, giving stiff competition with the Jaguar F-type and Aston Martin DB 11, the TVR is definite steal. Would you like to take it out for a spin?
