Indeed, the Griffith looks like a TVR but it's the use of Gordon Murray's iStream structure that set this thing apart from any TVR that's gone before it. The V8 is then mated to a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual, which allows the Griffith to go from 0-100 km/h in under four seconds and reach a top speed of 322 km/h.
Promising to be fast, noisy and - most revolutionary of all for a TVR - well made, the 2018 Griffith looks the part with classic proportions, a powerful stance and plenty of distinctive styling cues, some new and some recalling TVRs of old. It also has 50:50 weight distribution. The naturally-aspirated engine has been tweaked by Cosworth to help produce 400bhp per tonne.
We've already seen the chassis, a mix of steel tubes with composite panels (carbon fiber sandwiching an aluminum honeycomb) bonded on for stiffness. The new Griffith is said to have a maximum speed of more than 200mph, and a sub 4.0-second 0-60mph time. Suspension is by double wishbone, with adjustable coil-over dampers and concentric springs front and back.
TVR also says the new Griffith is only the second front-engined auto to feature a flat floor on its underside, minimising aerodynamic drag and improving stability at speed.
The Griffith name was previously used on the 1960s Griffith 200 and 400 and the 1990s Griffith, and this vehicle also signals the resurgence of TVR as a brand.
To comply with European Type Approval standards, the Griffith comes with ABS and a configurable traction control system. You'd be forgiven for thinking so, given the (qualified) excitement about the brand's rebirth and fact we've not heard a whole lot since meeting Les Edgar and John Chasey a year ago. It also gives TVR access to a wider team of designers and engineers geared up to deliver on the fiddly stuff like door seals and infotainment.
He commented: 'Today's unveiling is the culmination of almost three years of tireless work by the team, and we're all proud to be able to show the new TVR Griffith to the world.
The first Griffiths to arrive will be 500 Launch Edition models - which have all been sold at a price of £90,000. Importantly, the new TVR offers levels of technical sophistication, comfort, reliability and practicality never seen by the brand before'. The LE will be offered with unique 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, as well as unique paint colours.
