RIGHT CAR, RIGHT TIME
TVR has timed its reveal of the new Griffith perfectly, and come up with just the right car, too.
It looks instantly like a new TVR, and its pricing and specification are attractive to the person seeking a ‘toy’ who might once have bought a classic but now sees them as troublesome and bad value.
I’m impressed with the car’s compactness, and with claims for its light weight. I’m also impressed with the restraint of its styling, which resists the excesses that TVRS sometimes had in the past. That — along with lots more supercharged power — can come later. But by showing us an unfettered car, TVR has displayed the excellence of its proportions, and that’s needed nowadays for a performance car to be admired by an ever more discerning body of buyers.
There are big challenges ahead, but the first hurdle has been cleared with considerable ease.
