TVR Griffith 500 “British Thunder”
SOLD

This is an archetypal Classic British Sportscar. Just wait until you have heard the soul-stirring soundtrack that thunders from S555 TVR’s tailpipes! This is more V8 than American V8s! This car should be part of the orchestra at The Royal Albert Hall during the Last Night of the Proms!

This splendid Griffith 500 was first registered on 2 Sep 1998. That was 2 years before TVR announced a Special Edition run of 100 “LE” cars to mark the end of Griffith production. (These were built between 2000 and 2002 and are MUCH more expensive than this variant).

But this Griffith is undoubtedly as desirable and attractive as some of the last of the “LEs” This particular Griff is finished in Porsche Iris blue with a Magnolia interior. The roof is trimmed in black Mohair. The interior is finished in the classic complement to the Iris blue exterior - Ivory toned colourways which work so well with the unmarked, Walnut veneered dash panels - themselves enhanced by the full range of Leven aluminium technology. The dashtop is trimmed - very handsomely - in blue leather, to avoid reflections in the screen. The carpets are of course dark blue - and leather-bound in Magnolia - throughout.

The car does of course have a fine stereo with a one shot CD head unit, playing through very good speakers. But the real aural tone - to die for of course - comes from the car’s twin polished exhaust pipes. This car is not for shrinking violets. You are going to attract some very envious attention as you thunder (considerately!) through the cities and the towns and villages of John Bull Britain! Europeans may well have mourned the absence of V8 Griffs over the last 2 years - but TVRs will assuredly invade Europe again!

Let’s look at the car’s state of preparation… It is in remarkably good condition for its age - but then it is low on the miles. And the last 2 owners are caraholics and both lavished much attention on it. The car doesn’t feature the “optional” PAS (although this one is nice and light to steer), but it does have the optional full leather seats and headrests (with TVR stitched into them). And technically the car is well sorted with a service record evidencing “maintenance by mileage” carried out by respected TVR dealers.

This TVR has a fully stamped service record and paperwork and service invoices are available for the last 20 years. The car was first serviced by Str8six in 2011 and we have maintained it consistently since 2017.

The car will of course have a comprehensive 12,000 service and a full Geo set up before handover to its next owner. In addition, S555 TVR will be supplied with Str8six's renowned "All the 12s" handover specification -
i.e. FULL 12,000 miles service, 12 months MOT and TAX and our 12 months/12,000 miles FULL WEAR and TEAR WARRANTY covering PARTS and LABOUR on the WHOLE CAR. It also has an inbuilt 12 volt trickle charger, and you will get to keep the TVR registration number!

Overall mileage - 29,720
