TVR built the Griffith models between 1991 and 2002, with the 500 first appearing in 1993. Using a TVR-developed version of the famous Rover V8 but now, at 5.0 litres, producing a claimed 340 bhp. This, when fitted in the lightweight, fibreglass-bodied sports car gave a claimed top speed of 167mph and 0-60mph time of 4.1 seconds. Whilst described by some in the press as ”ferociously quick and hairy of chest”, it can easily be driven around using just the ample torque from the V8 engine, as a relaxed cruiser. This example has been with the current owner for some years, in which time he has spared no expense maintaining the car. In 2013, the car was completely rebuilt with a new chassis, which included the renewal of many suspension components, together with engine mountings, 4 new brake disks and pads, hoses etc. Shortly afterwards, the car was treated to a full respray, which included the original fitment OZ seven-spoke alloy wheels. The bodywork has subsequently been well kept and remains in excellent condition. The car drives very well, with both the V8 engine and Borg Warner five-speed manual transmission functioning perfectly. The leather interior is in very good condition but does shows a little wear on the cushions of both seats. The targa top is present and in excellent condition, as is the folding hood. The Griffith is a high-power, well-balanced car with huge performance on offer coupled with an un-mistakable exhaust note. This fine example has that sparkling performance and is in excellent condition with good, documented history from 2004 on file, indicating the efforts spent in keeping the car as original as possible and in tip-top condition. It will be fitted with a new set of tyres at time of sale, inclusive in the asking price. The car is currently Guernsey registered and the cherished registration number is not included in the sale. We can assist with shipping and importation processes if required and can ship worldwide.
