TVR Griffith To Return In 2022 Company Plans

TVR bosses are looking to raise £25 million in order to get the Griffith up and running.


  • TVR has an 18-month plan to bring the Griffith to market.

  • The Griffith was first revealed at the 2017 Goodwood Revival.

  • TVR says they’ve already got 500 potential owners ready and waiting.


TVR has built some very special sports cars over the decades. The Griffith was one of them and it will make a comeback in the near future. In fact, the plan was to launch the car sooner however TVR Chairman Les Edgar has admitted that the program is taking longer than anticipated.

“It’s no secret that this project has turned out to be tougher than we expected and has taken longer,” Edgar told Autocar. “But we’re all still completely dedicated to building a sustainable sports car business. Many of the delays have been caused by problems beyond our control.”

Even so, once these details are sorted, TVR believes that setting up the factory will be easy enough. It will use the iStream assembly process which was developed by non-other than Gordon Murray who also happens to have designed the Griffith. The eventual goal is to build 2000+ units of the Griffith per year.

The TVR Griffith will be powered by Ford’s 5.0-litre V8 engine which will be handled by Cosworth as they will fit it with a dry sump. The base Griffith should get 500 horsepower which could be raised to 700 will little effort. By the way, Ford and TVR have a long-standing relationship that goes back to 1946 – more than 50% of all TVRs produced were powered by a Ford engine.
