Looks good to me, although it may struggle in a segment filled with talent e.g. 911, F-Type, Vantage etc....

Not as wild as I thought it would be. Time has moved on and I think that the owners who have £100k to spend will want something that works 100% of the time, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation etc. Tough market to launch this in.

All of it dreadful. Such a let down. They'll sell the first batch, then will fold after a couple of years. Haven't really got the tvr vibe, not understood it. You had to be quite brave to buy a tvr I think but for the brave it stood out and had plenty to differentiate it from the competition. This is very average in my eyes.

I don't know why they didn't just refresh the sagaris...

The video shows quite a few cool design features and flourishes that you don't get to see in the photos.

I like it a lot.

'Old School', I love itBig Smile

It won't suit the point and squirters who have forgotten how to drive a 'manual' and it is all the better for that, it will fly off the shelves, well done TVRBig Smile

Possibly going to look better in the flesh but I found the rear end awful and what's with those switches ???, looks like someone has left a number of thermos flasks on the dashboard.

The plan for maybe a new megane rs is going out the window now I think, I wasn't sure about the front end on the new griff but it's growing on me and the underpinnings will be fantastic
Gordon Murray knows how to build a car that goes around corners, I already own a tvr Griffith that I have had nigh on 15 years it's never broken down on me once it did have a hot start fault at one point due to a crap earth,
The new car will be built nothing like old tvr's which lets be honest the beauty is in there simplicity so cheap to fix if you spanner,
So I think I'm gonna have to sell a kidney and get me another Griffith

Good for youSmile

I wish I was in the financial position to get a deposit down, maybe theend of next year, fingers crossedSmile

I think this Griffith will ignite a passion in a lot of buyers that is so absent in this price range and sector at presentBig Smile

I grew up in the days of the Taimar & Tasmin and always loved them, but never ventured into the realms of ownership mainly due to reliability issues of them.
TVR were always different, spectacular, quirky and just a little crazy so it'S good to see what looks like a modern day equivelant of those roots.
I do hope they make a success of the rebirth, but 90K? Just a bit too high in my opinion.

Also I really don't like those wheels.

As an aside they were also crazy with their colours, I'll never forget the metallic raspberry they came up with.
