It's L118 BFV. 1993 TVR Griffith 500 in a raspberry colour built as a factory demo car along with it's sister car L110 BFV. The only discernible difference apart from body and trim colour was that 110 had PAS and 118 did not. 118 is one of my favourite TVRs - wonder what happened to it...?

Nerd alert NERD ALERT hehe

Errr... not quite true i'm afraid.L118 BFV was a '94 model Griff.L110 BFV never had PAS in the beginning(not actually available from the factory at the time it was built)or when it was finally sold on by the factory.It has unassisted steering but the rack isn't the one normally found on a griff of that vintage,i was told it was a bit of an experiment.Anyway,who does own L118 BFV at present?

harsh ...... rofl

Was it emmissions that kept them out the US?

(or the fact that they would have murdered what the Americans called sports cars)
I heard it was American product liability laws which kept TVR from wanting to export to the States. Imagine if some pillock wrapped his car round a tree and he (or his surviving relatives) decided to sue TVR because, obviously, it was the car's fault!
