BACK WITH A BANG

The long-awaited new TVR was un­veiled at Good­wood last week­end. Named Grif­fith af­ter the orig­i­nal Six­ties model, it’s billed as a real driver’s car, with per­fect 50-50 weight dis­tri­bu­tion and a Cos­worth-tuned ver­sion of the 5.0-litre V8 from Ford’s Mus­tang un­der the bon­net. TVR claims it will hit 60mph in un­der four sec­onds. It’s due next year, priced at about £90,000.

DEALS ON WHEELS

There were stars aplenty at this week’s Frank­furt Mo­tor Show (in­clud­ing the Mercedes-AMG’s £2 mil­lion hy­per­car), but those with a keen eye on their bank bal­ance will have been more im­pressed by the new Da­cia Duster (top), which from 2018 will come with a more pre­mium look (in­side and out) and hitech kit to go with its fa­mously rea­son­able, sub-£10k price tag.
