The wait is over! Meet the new TVR Griffith. Designed from the ground up and powered by a Ford 5 litre V8 engine, tuned by the folks at Cosworth, this does not dissapoint. Performance wise, figures currently being chucked around are 400BHP per tonne, with a peak power of 500BHP. But what about speed? TVR haven’t skimped there either. They say it will do 0 to 62 in under 4 seconds, with a top speed in excess of 200MPH. On the design front, it’s perhaps not as radical as some of their past cars, such as the Sagaris, but it’s striking and impressive. Note the side exhausts behind the front wheels! To keep it light (below 1250kg), the body is a carbon composite material – no more fibreglass.
I was a little delayed in posting last year’s photos, a little under 12 months late, and I was determined to get this year’s photos out on time. This year we returned to Spa, taking for a second year running, our VUHL 05 demonstrator. The VUHL was masterfully piloted by Mark through all weathers whilst all other members of the Bespoke team opted for a vehicle which could better protect them from the elements. The 2017 convoy was mainly comprised of TVRs, with the exception of the VUHL and (shock, horror) a noisy Japanese saloon. Thanks once again to everybody who came and for making the trip a good one. Bellow are a selection of photos from this year’s adventure. We’ll return next year for more sun (hopefully), beer and good times. In the meantime, I will eagerly follow the progress of British Gas as they begin to branch out and begin offering services to new Belgian customers, [...]
Last year we returned to Belgium for what has become an annual pilgrimage for Bespoke and its customers. This (last) year we decided to be even more adventurous than usual and took a car without a windscreen, or roof for that matter, our VUHL 05 demonstrator. A variety of cars joined us in convoy, from TVRs to a Lotus and, even though we’re ashamed to say it, the odd Mercedes (bring a proper car next time Matt). Thanks once again to everybody who came and thanks for making the trip a good one. Bellow are a selection of photos from the trip. Bring on 2017!
Just in case you didn’t already think the standard VUHL 05 was fast enough, this years Goodwood Festival of Speed sees the unveiling of the new VUHL 05RR, a lighter, faster, track-focused younger brother of the VUHL 05.
Iker Echeverria, VUHL Technical Director, said: “I am so looking forward to returning to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, with our new 05RR car. We have upgraded all the car’s systems to make it faster, more engaging and even more track focused. We feel very close to the UK market, as around 50% of our componentry is developed and produced in Britain, and it is the place we debuted our first car.”
Thank you to all those who came down to visit us yesterday for another successful open day. Below is a selection of photos from this year’s event, with highlights including the VUHL 05, a heavily modified RX8, a beautiful selection of TVRs and a special Aston Martin. If you’ve got your own photos to share, get in contact with us on social media, facebook, twitter, or instagram. Videos to follow.
As mentioned in our earlier post, Bespoke Performance will be representing VUHL at this year’s London Motor Show at Battersea Park.
If you haven’t already been to come and see the VUHL 05 at our showroom in Hertfordshire, then why not view it in the flesh from the 5th to 8th May 2016 at the Motor Show.
