Details

Like its forerunner namesakes, the Griffith 200 and Griffith 400, the modern Griffith was a lightweight (1,060 kg) fiberglass-bodied, 2-door, 2-seat sports car with a V8 engine. Originally, it used a 4.0L 240 hp Rover V8 engine, but that could be optionally increased to 4.3L 280 hp in 1992 with a further option of big-valve cylinder heads. In 1993, with a TVR-developed 5.0L 340hp version of the Rover V8 became available. All versions of the Griffith use the Lucas Industries 14CUX engine management system. All models use a five-speed manual transmission from Rover and TREMEC. Although the Griffith was almost mechanically identical to its sister car, the Chimaera, it had a different body design and was produced in much smaller numbers.
