The TVR Griffith was the car that pushed TVR into the big league of performance car manufacturers when it was unveiled in 1990. The wedge-shaped cars of the eighties were nearing the limits of their development and a new direction needed to be found. The Griffith embodied all of the innovation, design flair and sheer bloody-mindedness that TVR has come to stand for. Ferociously quick and hairy of chest, the Griffith is a car that doesn't suffer fools gladly. Although TVR boss Peter Wheeler won't thank us for reminding him, TVRs of the early nineties had a mixed reputation for reliability, but there are legions of Griffith owners who can attest to miles of trouble-free motoring. As long as you choose carefully and budget extra time and money for upkeep, you shouldn't go too far wrong.
Best to go for as late a Griffith 500 as you can afford, leaving something in the bank for servicing and insurance. Even then, you'll probably need another everyday car, but you'll get to develop a relationship with your Griff, understanding its foibles, quirks and character. See as many as you can, arm yourself with at least £20,000 and buy the best you come across. One thing's for sure. You'll never forget it and unless you're spectacularly unlucky it's doubtful you'll regret it.
