2018 TVR Griffith Spyder gets rendered

Article by Christian A., on October 16, 2017

Have you ever thought about how awesome it would be to have a 2018 TVR Griffith Spyder? Well, now it won’t be farfetched. Barely a month after TVR unwrapped the much anticipated Griffith to the public, top-notch restyling service company E. Milano reimagined the classic two seater sports coupe into a more exciting convertible. The revision shows a sleeker exterior design by disregarding the C-pillar and windows from the original model—as you can see from the picture here. Despite the British manufacturer having revealed no plans of coming up with a new Spyder version, for sure, many will find this idea pretty interesting.

TVR, as we know, is an independent British company that makes high end sports car and it was once acclaimed as the third biggest specialized sports car maker in the world. E. Milano on the other hand has been renowned for its tagline---“raising the bar with every car” as the company offers services focusing on custom car body modifications from Italy. According to its website, it is no longer about owning a unique sports car, rather it’s about owning an exotic vehicle that drives and looks differently from all the rest of the exotic cars out there. Well, that proves a good point.

For those who want a little more information about the coupe, the new Griffith is a classic front-engined two seater bearing the British marque’s traditional design while differentiating itself from the usual retro styled models. With respect to its 70-year heritage, however, TVR retains some of the classic details evocative of its glorious past and combines it with the latest designs and technologies. By partnering with Gordon Murray and Cosworth, TVR introduces the new generation of Griffith in the market.

First things first, the new Griffith now has a Cosworth-tuned 5.0-liter V8 engine from Ford that’s capable of producing up to 500 horsepower. We find this really amazing, considering the car only tips the scales somewhere at 2775 pounds (or 1250 kilograms). Famous Formula One designer Gordon Murray has equipped the new Griffith with carbon fiber chassis to achieve this weight. Since it also has a 50:50 weight distribution with a power-to-ratio of about 400 horsepower/ ton, the Griffith can go from zero to 62 miles per hour under 4 seconds before hitting 321km/h (200mph).

Even more interesting, the Griffith measures 4,314mm long, 1,850mm wide, with the height of 1,239mm, say, if we have to compare it with other high-end muscle cars, the new TVR coupe is much smaller than that of Jaguar’s (with its F-Type model) and also the Porsche 911.

All said, the return of the British manufacturer and the TVR Griffith’s revival will surely bring more thrills to every car enthusiast, how much more if E. Milano’s philosophy has been added into the mix.
