TVR announces Griffith HEV & BEV
TVR announced its Griffith sports car four years ago, but the carmaker is still looking for investment to begin the production. It is now official that the car will have a hybrid and an all-electric version when (if?) it ships.
The specifics regarding these two variants remain unknown, but we know that the original design from 2017 had a rear-wheel drive system, perfect per-axle weight distribution, and used a five-liter Ford V8 modified by Cosworth. It needed four seconds for the launch and maxed out at 322 km/h (200 mph).
Customers have pre-ordered cars to the tune of £40 million so far, and TVR received a £2 million credit to begin the production in Wales, but it apparently needs another £23 million before the assembly lines can start rolling – or possibly even more. With this in mind, the future of the model seems less than certain.
