1993-2000 TVR Griffith 500 specifications Classic and Performance Car

Though originally designed to use TVR’s own AJP V8 engine, a more expedient route was chosen to get the Griffith back into production: a well tweaked five-litre incarnation of the Rover V8. In keeping with the stunning performance this provided, the ‘new’ Griffith also came with better brakes, Koni dampers and an even stiffer chassis. To the relief of many, in 1994 a Borg-Warner T5 gearbox replaced the old Rover SD1 unit. The raft of new customers TVR was now attracting were offered such previously-unthinkable luxuries including air-conditioning and heated seats.
