TVR Will Take V8 And EV Griffith Models Global


Considering the competition it faces, it’s easy to dismiss the upcoming Griffith as a non-starter. Apart from the various sports cars available in the $100,000 to $150,000 price bracket, it will inevitably face the mighty Porsche 911.

But you might not know about TVR’s secret weapon, called Gordon Murray. Murray started designing the Griffith in 2014, and the prototype was finished by 2017. The upcoming ICE car will be virtually identical to said prototype, powered by the 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 used in the Ford Mustang. In the TVR, it will produce between 450 to 500 horsepower and will be mated to a six-speed automatic.

“We have always had the right car for the relaunch, the concept engineered by Gordon Murray and ready to be built using his innovative production practices. All the feedback is clear that it is the right product for us to build on TVR’s 75-year history,” said Edgar.
