New TVR Griffith: first breath!


When TVR unveiled the new Griffith at Goodwood earlier this month the resulting story garnered over 1,000 comments on our PH alone. So, with PistonHeads being the spiritual home of all things TVR, we just had to share this new footage of the Griffith on the move.

The clip is quite short, with TVR boss Les Edgar behind the wheel in what appears to be the Gordon Murray Design carpark. A little dab of the throttle results in a number of expletives from Les and passenger John Chasey as the car kicks out and the thunderous, Cosworth fettled, 500hp V8 snarls through the side exit exhausts. Seems like a proper TVR then!

Watch the short video here and let us know what you think below!

    Two refreshing comments on the performance... 'SH*T!' and 'F*CKING HELL!'.

    Love it.

    Can't wait!

    Though, No idea where I am in the queue.

    But mine is going to be blue or silver.. and no cream interior.

    Can't figure out if the wheel is on at an angle or if they are actually driving on a curve. The view out the window makes it look like they are travelling in a straight line, but the mark at the 'top' of the wheel is at -10deg or there abouts.

    So traction control on, straight line and cannot handle the power? Sounds EXACTLY like TVRs of old. biggrin
