1990 TVR Griffith

The Griffith that was really responsible for TVR”s renaissance. The first cars were delivered to customers at the beginning of 1992 and the car was overwhelmingly successful. An order was taken on average every eight minutes at its first Motor Show and, with the introduction of the Griffith 500 in 1993, it reached the first rank of the instant classics. Although an era came to an end in 2002 when the last car rolled off TVR”s production line, the Griffith will be remembered more than anything as being the car that put TVR on the map.
