A lovely HPI clear TVR Griffith 500 finished in Rosso Pearl Red metallic with black leather interior which I have owned for more than 2yrs. During which time I have covered approximately 12k very happy miles in the car, including a faultless 3k mile trip across Europe in Summer 2017!!!
The vehicle is MOTd until February 2019 (with no advisories) and has covered a total of 99.5k miles and enjoys a full and up-to-date service history with TVR dealers/specialists from new.
In fact, so obscene is the amount of history, that it is virtually impossible to provide an overview! It has been compiled and indexed in a lever arch folder from day one by its previous owners and myself!
In addition to a mountain of invoices and paperwork, it also has its complete and original leather TVR filofax with a fully stamped service history (27* stamps in total!!!!!).
Being a post 1995/6 example, my Griffith is a later production version which featured serpentine engines coupled with the Borg Warner T5 gearbox and has the standard non-assisted steering setup.
Having driven numerous examples with and without PAS I can honestly say that for me, the non-assisted examples are far nicer to drive. Providing a level of feel and communication not found in the PAS equipped cars.
The following works were all completed in 2017 during which time the car has covered approximately 6k miles;
- Top-end engine rebuild including; new head gaskets, valley gaskets, sports high-lift cam, timing chain, sprocket, etc
- Exhaust manifold gaskets renewed
- Idle stepper motor replaced
- New battery
- New tyres all-round
- Front upper wishbone mounting bushes renewed
- Rear driveshaft UJs renewed
- Steering column UJ renewed
- Thermostat renewed
- Scheduled service inspections
Upgraded features on this vehicle include:
- Nitron adjustable dampers (supplied new & fitted apx 2yrs ago)
- Remote boot release (with 2* fobs)
- Leven gear lever surround
- Leven fuel filler
- Leven oil cap
- Tuscan style integrated remote ignition key
- Upgraded sports camshaft (fitted in 2017)
- Roof panel bag
Standard features include:
- Electric windows
- Electric mirrors
- Meta Alarm/immobiliser/remote central locking

The vehicle is in very good condition throughout and drives superbly to say the very least!
