Back in September, one of the most loved British sportscar brands started its resurrection. Launched at the Goodwood Revival, TVR unveiled a brand new V8 sportscar known as the Griffith, harking back to the car from the '60s that wore the same name badge.

The biggest kudos that this new British brute will bring to the sportscar market is its aero package and lack of weight, all of which has been orchestrated by the legendary Gordon Murray.

And to add to our excitement from its Goodwood static release, the Griffith has been recorded testing dynamically for the first time via TVR's YouTube channel.

The main thing we can take from the footage is its glorious V8 soundtrack, with the Griffith utilising Ford's Coyote V8 which has been tuned by Cosworth to a meaty 500bhp. Some of the aero trickery is also taped up in the video, either for protection or for engineering analysis.

It has been tipped as a 911 rival, with its 50:50 weight distribution, 1250kg kerb weight and 200mph+ top speed. The main Porsche-smiting tech however comes in the shape of the TVR's flat floor that produces ground effect to suck the lightweight piece of muscle into the tarmac.

The Griffith will be with customers in 2019, but I'm sure plenty petrolheads will happily wait for the car to be perfected in the meantime. Please TVR, make this one a comeback to remember.
