Well, all that excitement has broken free today as TVR took the wraps off the new Griffith.
TVR also says the new Griffith is only the second front-engined vehicle to feature a flat floor on its underside, minimising aerodynamic drag and improving stability at speed.
The new Griffith retains one of TVR's most well-known model names and is described as remaining true to the brand's heritage, while employing cutting-edge engineering - notably the innovative iStream architecture created by former F1 and McLaren road auto designer Gordon Murray.
Using Gordon Murray Design's iStream architecture with carbon composite structure and body panels, the Griffith weighs only 1,250kg, has high torsional rigidity and a ideal 50:50 weight distribution. With a dry weight of just 2,755 lbs (1,250 kg), the Griffith will accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in less than four seconds and keep on pulling all the way to 200 miles per hour. But unlike a Miata, the Griffith also packs a 5.0-liter Cosworth-tuned V-8 that churns out 500 hp. The V8 is then mated to a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual, which allows the Griffith to go from 0-100 km/h in under four seconds and reach a top speed of 322 km/h. At 431cm long, 185cm wide and 123cm tall, the Griffith is also the lowest and shortest of the pack, while only the 911 is narrower.
It will be priced from £90,000 in the United Kingdom with 500 Griffith Launch Editions scheduled for production in late 2018.
But in other key areas, the new Griffith is revolutionary. The chassis consists of a carbon composite bonded to steel and aluminium, with body panels also in composite.
The TVR Griffith Launch Edition will be offered in a broad choice of colours, including specific Launch Edition colours, as well as custom paint options. The company has had what can only be described as an interesting ownership history, but its British owners acquired it from Russian entrepreneur Nikolay Smolensky in 2013.
TVR boss Les Edgar said: 'Today's unveiling is the culmination of almost three years of tireless work by the team, and we're all proud to be able to show the new TVR Griffith to the world. Large 19-inch wheels shod in 235/35 rubber sit up front and are joined by 20-inch wheels out back wrapped in meaty 275/30 rubber.
The Griffith is scheduled to enter production late next year, with the first deliveries in 2019.
