A modern but still classically TVR design, the new two-seater boasts advanced construction using the Gordon Murray iStream architecture, which makes the new car rigid and light: kerbweight is under 1,250kg. That’s 85kg less than even a basic Porsche 718 Boxster.

TVR has combined low weight with a powerful Cosworth-developed 5.0-litre V8 engine.

Derived from the motor in the Ford Mustang GT, the engine produces more than 400hp per tonne, or around 500hp in total (final figures have not yet been revealed). This is good for a top speed of over 200mph, and a 0-62mph time of under 4.0 seconds.

Excitingly, the new Griffith features dual side exit exhausts, which are sure to sound dramatic.

Reborn British supercar marque TVR has revealed its all- new Griffith sports car at the 2017 Goodwood revival . The new Griffith marks the 70th anniversary of TVR 's founding in 1947.

Indeed, the firm is already saying it plans to take the new Griffith racing, and could even mark the return of the famous brand to the Le Mans 24 Hours. Naturally, the new TVR Griffith will be rear-wheel drive.

The new TVR is a compact car as well: length of 4,314mm makes it shorter overall than a 718 Boxster. It’s lower than the Porsche as well, but a longer wheelbase should back up the firm’s claims of the two-seater offering plenty of space even for taller people inside.

The interior is driver-focused and includes a contemporary-look central infotainment system with Tesla-style portrait-mounted screen. Its uncluttered layout embodies the revived firm’s motto: ‘Spirit of Driving’.

Speaking of which, TVR has fitted double wishbone suspension with adjustable coilover dampers, which should please enthusiasts. Less welcome news may be the use of electric power steering, although the firm promises us steering feel is uncompromised.

Nicking a trick from Porsche, the rear wheels are bigger than the fronts: 20-inch wheels with 275/30 tyres at the back, 19-inch wheels with narrower 235/35 tyres up front.
