It will be priced from £90,000 in the United Kingdom with 500 Griffith Launch Editions scheduled for production in late 2018.
The carbon composite body is fitted over a steel and aluminium chassis with carbon composite panels bonded to the frame providing the stiffness and rigidity required, and it's all manufactured using Gordon Murray Design's iStream architecture. Unlike the TVR sportscars of yore, the new TVR Griffith will ship with anti-lock brakes, airbags, and traction control - a result of today's more heavily-legislated roadways. With a quoted weight of 1250kg, it works to around 500bhp. With a dry weight of just 2,755 lbs (1,250 kg), the Griffith will accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in less than four seconds and keep on pulling all the way to 200 miles per hour.
The suspension uses double wishbones at either end, with adjustable coil-over dampers and concentric springs.
Expected to wear the Griffith nameplate as a tip of the hat to one of its classic models, the new grand touring coupe will be powered by a front-mounted Cosworth-tuned 5.0-liter V8 borrowed from the Ford Mustang parts bin. This positioning gives the auto 50:50 weight distribution. The aerodynamics are also thoroughly 21st century, with a flat floor allowing the full ground effect aerodynamics to keep the vehicle planted and stable at high speeds.
It's small too. Measuring 4314mm in length 1850mm wide and 1239mm tall, it's similar in size to the current Porsche Cayman. There is a bespoke instrument cluster and an infotainment system specially designed for TVR.
He commented: 'Today's unveiling is the culmination of almost three years of tireless work by the team, and we're all proud to be able to show the new TVR Griffith to the world.
Many purists will be pleased to hear this news, as TVR made a name for itself producing high power sports cars before ceasing all production in 2006.
You thought it was a mythical beast, one never to see the light of day again, only to be talked about in private social media channels, but lo and behold there is a new TVR and it's finally been revealed in all its V8-engined glory.
Prices start from £90,000 but production won't actually start until late 2018 - meaning you'll have to wait until 2019 to actually get the auto delivered.
