A horribly amazing Anglo-American tiny sportscar

Perhaps some of us now rarely hear this sports car brand. TVR. Yes, it is a brand that is owned by an automotive manufacturer from England that once had a hey day in the past in the 1960s until the late 1970s and is still active until today.

Among the many cars that have ever been made there is a sports car that is quite inviting admiration from automotive enthusiasts in the world.

The car is known as TVR Griffith 200, a lightweight fiberglass sports car. In the United States, this car is known as the Griffith Series 200.

This car can be said to be 'tiny but powerful' with the TVR Grantura Mk III chassis. This car was recorded only made as many as 192 units at the TVR factory near Blackpool, England, before being sent to New York and modified by an American famous auto modificator, Jack Griffith.

In the United States, TVR Griffith 200 is equipped with a 4.7-liter Ford V8 engine, that's the same engine used by the famous AC Cobra 289. Those machine is capable of producing up to 200 hp of power.
By using those bold combination between its great power (200 horsepower), a light weight and a short wheelbase (only 3.6 meters), makes the TVR Griffith 200 to be a 'feared' figures and respected as well in its class. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CLASSIC DRIVER | PETROLICIOUS]
