New TVR Griffith Firmly Scheduled For Late 2023

Five years after the car’s debut and almost ten years after Les Edgar embarked upon his journey to revive TVR, the new Griffith has now finally got a scheduled release date. In an interview with Les Edgar and his senior team, performance car magazine ‘EVO’ got the details on TVR’s newest 480bhp front-engined V8 sports car.

Off-course, given the tentative nature of TVR’s revival, the news has been met with a fair amount of scepticism online on websites such as Pistonheads. The question which seems to crop up most is ‘can they even afford this’?. Especially given Les Edgar’s lofty ambitions for the highest automotive production standards, which he made clear in his interview ‘‘A car not starting or a door falling off is not acceptable,’ says serial TVR owner Edgar. ‘This was our starting point.’.

After forging funding partnerships with Chilean lithium mining company ‘Ensorcia’ back in November and successfully securing funding from the Welsh Assembly for their factory facility in the Ebbw Vale area of South Wales, there appears to be something stirring, albeit very slowly.

The fact of the matter is that we have some positive news about an actual TVR in production and we can only wait and remain hopeful that the new Griffith will see the light of day.

Save the date! – TVRCC’s Big Northern Gathering – June Bank Holiday Weekend

Something good to look forward to: TVRCC’s ‘BNG’ held at Beamish Museum in Country Durham on June 4th & 5th. This is a National event, so there should be a decent turn out with a variety of TVRs on show. Our very own esteemed TVR fanatic Tony Abrams will be in attendance representing HHC. Most likely driving a bright orange cerb, so you can’t miss him!
