TVR Griffith at Castle Combe: Time For Coffee?

Tyre promo films are never much fun, are they? They are when there's a TVR involved...

By Matt Bird / Thursday, November 15, 2018

Can it really be nearly 15 months since the world first laid eyes on the new TVR Griffith? Time really does fly. Indeed according to the original story, production should be starting very soon, meaning 2019 should be the year for driving it. How exciting...

Until then we have this teaser, from tyre provider Avon. It's less than a minute long, so look elsewhere for an in-depth track assessment, but it's nice at least to see the car driven in anger on circuit. Pleasingly, there aren't any surprises: the Griffith makes lots of noise, lots of smoke and lots of speed. Marvellous.

Beyond that, there's not a lot to know. It doesn't look too big on track - you'd be amazed how some road cars can feel on circuit - and Castle Combe looks as entertaining as ever. Is the car pitching around a lot on the brakes? Maybe. Or maybe we're used to cars not moving one jot on track, and then feeling aloof on road.

There's a lot to still to find out then, that's for sure, this video only whetting the appetite further. Let's hope there's more to follow soon...
