British Muscle Car Maker TVR back with Griffith
TVR, the British muscle-car maker, which halted its production in 2004 when it ran out of cash, will be beginning the production of the two-seat Griffith sports car in 2018.
The Griffith sports car has been powered by the similar Ford V8 engine that’s used in the Mustang, however, the engine has been given a boost by the British engine tuner Cosworth for helping the engine make 500 horsepower. The Griffith will be able to go to speeds of more than 322 km/h, which sounds exciting, according to the company.
The brand has been revived by Les Edgar, the Computer games magnate. The brand had started its business of building cars back in 1947.
Les Edgar bought assets in 2013 from Nikolai Smolensky, the former Russian owner of the company at a cost that’s not been disclosed yet.
Edgar is of the opinion that the Griffith is without fail a TVR, and a British muscle car which is as awesome as well as brutal as the charisma suggests.
The Griffith will revive a nameplate from the past of the TVR and has been designed by Gordon Murray. He became famous for his achievements in the Formula One Racing and has been instrumental in helping in the creation of the 1992 McLaren F1 supercar.
Production of the Griffith will start in late 2018 in Wales in a new factory.
