anyone out there with computer based design skills - would like to see a Griff with:

lower more angled standard build windscreen (not impractical Aero) - shown top up and down
lower hood hoop to match
lower hood hoop not so much to provide slight slope in targa
Quad exhaust based on 4.3 oe tails (Y jointed as usual just behind tips) - kicked up more - a la Pantera original, with rear valance sculptured recess

If possible, in Candy apple pearl with OE split rim OZ rims, magnolia full leather interior....

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Anyone + a link to how you created the images so we can all experiment would be a great 'home stay' project smile

Really, nobody think a professional Speedster variant wouldnt look great? - The unnecessary cabin height and deep screen age the stunning design a tad these days IMHO

Would like to see a computer render of the mod smile

There was a thread on the Cerbera forum where one man's dream along similar lines was being discussed. There wasn't a lot of enthusiasm there for wrecking a beautiful design...
And yes, it looks like you're on your own here too.

i couldnt do it to an original car - however one requiring extensive repairs is a different matter - i am just curious to see how it might look - it works for the 911 smile

There’s one already out there I believe, possibly in Italy. I remember seeing it on these forums so you might have to do some digging. Green if I remember correctly.

I've had a very crude 'design concept' (using MS Paint on a profile view laugh ) of a Chimaera-based Speedster with loads of pics of details taken from similar cars as a mood board of sorts in my TVR stuff folder since 2014. I honestly think the longer tail of the Chim lends itself better to this sort of thing, anyway...

Might even build one some day - too much going on with other projects for the foreseeable future tho'...

Strangely, having had my Griff 500 for over 20 years I've never considered the roof height to be unnecessarily high. I'm 5'9". scratchchin

I am 6 ft and too much spare headroom - designed to accommodate TVR's glorious leader, Peter smile - 6ft 3"?

good finds smile

a little too extreme for my idea of a road version though - still think a screen halfway between this and oe could be attractive smile

I assume you are throwing a party for your 20 year anniversary. I believe the present is impressive
