Clas­sic Ris­ers

TVR Grif­fith

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - David Simis­ter

The sharpest-driv­ing TVR of the 1990s is the most sought af­ter by clas­sic buy­ers, which has helped to drive prices up­wards. Back in 2002 – barely a year af­ter pro­duc­tion ended – prices for the ear­li­est cars had bot­tomed out at around £14k for good ex­am­ples. Val­ues have steadily in­creased since then, with TVR’s 2007 clo­sure help­ing to ce­ment the Griff’s ap­peal to the wider clas­sic mar­ket. Prices have picked up par­tic­u­larly sharply over the past five years– and in turn it’s pulling up val­ues of its Chi­maera cousin, too. We reckon Grif­fith val­ues could climb even higher, be­cause a mar­ket that loves V8 clas­sics hasn’t had ac­cess to it yet. With the ear­li­est Grif­fiths now hit­ting 25 years old they’re le­gal to im­port into the US. The Grif­fith’s rar­ity and sta­tus as the Chi­maera’s sharper cousin also make it pop­u­lar here, so we wouldn’t be sur­prised to see more of them hit­ting £30k.
