TVR GRIFFITH (1990-) CAR HISTORY

Car review on TVR GRIFFITH

TVR progressed into the 1980s with a new chairman at the helm, businessman and true enthusiast of the marque Peter Wheeler, who succeeded in turning TVR's fortunes around in no uncertain terms. Wheeler quickly realized what his customers wanted and concentrated Ills efforts on making convertible two-seaters with glass fiber bodies and brawny Rover V-eight engines.


The angular Tasmin series of 1980-91 was successful, if not exactly pretty, but the car it led to was undeniably a masterstroke. The Griffith had its roots in the TVR Tuscan racer first seen in 1988, which used the familiar TVR tubular chassis, uprated suspension and a monster 4001-ihp V- eight engines. Tuscans were raced in one of the quickest and most exciting one-make series in the world but were never officially homologated for road use.


The spirit of the Tuscan resurfaced in the new Griffith, a pukka road-going car launched at the Birmingham Motor Show in 1990, but not actually available until late 1991. The Griffith name harked back to the magnificently hairy Ford V-eight powered TVRs of the mid-1960s. The justification for exploiting that heritage; was certainly there, since the first edition of the new Griffith sported a V-eight engine based on the unit still used in the Range Rover, and developing cither 240bhp or 280bhp.


In looks, the Griffith was far removed from TVRs of old: instead of angular and slightly gawky lines there were swoopy curves everywhere, a profile unbroken by styling adornments and clever air ducting at the leading edges of the bonnet (hood) and doors. Oilier neat styling details included a lack of exterior door handles, evocative aluminum knobs in the cabin and a removable solid-centre roof section. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the Griffith was that it was almost totally designed and produced in-house. Considering the brilliance of the end product, this was a remarkable achievement for such a small size company.

Testers were immediately impressed by the Griffith's character: an almost forgotten formula of raw V-eight power, rear-wheel drive and a rich, burbling exhaust note that was like no oilier car. Some even compared its overall impact to that of the E-Type Jaguar in 1961, since the TVR offered a similarly intoxicating brew of luscious curves, superior performance and exceptional value for money. No other sports car offered so much for so little, and TVR grew' in size and importance on the back of Griffith sales.


If the press was impressed with the Griffith, it was rapturous about the 1993 Griffith 500, whose engine grew in size to five liters and which developed no less than 345blip. Now you could expect a 0-60mph (0-96kpli) time of a little over four seconds and mid-range punch and low-speed torque the like of which was simply not available elsewhere.
TVR followed up the Griffith with other models such as the cheaper Chimaera and even more potent Cerbera, but neither had the impact of the original, svelte Griffith, which remains one of the most popular models in the Blackpool manufacturer's repertoire.
