The bodywork is composite and aluminum and has benefited from considerably more aerodynamic consideration than any previous TVR, including what's described as a "full ground-effect aerodynamic package" with a flat floor, a novelty for a front-engined auto. These are the kind of numbers that give the new Griffith the right to call itself a "supercar".

The long-awaited new vehicle carrying the name TVR with its long association with Blackpool, has at last been unveiled three years after the company's revival was officially announced. A familiar name then, but a TVR the kind of which we haven't seen before.

Power goes to the back wheels the good old fashioned way, through a six-speed Tremec manual gearbox. TVR claims that this new sportscar has a top speed that is north of 300km/h - and will dismiss the 0-100km/h sprint in less than four seconds.

Underneath, the Griffith has Cosworth developed 5.0-liter V8 stays true to TVR's old school recipe. The side exit exhausts on the TVR Griffith is a standout design element.

This is the new TVR Griffith. It's mounted over a carbon-fibre reinforced aluminium and steel chassis, which is not only light but extremely rigid. Avon tires are sized 235/35R-19 at the front and 275/30R-20 at the rear.

They'll also have to contend with sometimes contrarian messaging from the White House. "There's much more we can do economically". Mnuchin said both he and President Trump support the plan. "The president has made it clear, this isn't the time for just talk".

The new TVR Griffith unveiled to the public today is presented in Launch Edition specification, which includes a full leather interior and custom alloy wheels, as well as Launch Edition paint options and a bespoke infotainment system. It's sourced from Ford, because, says Les Edgar, the company "needed an engine with built-in reliability and long life".

Griffith drivers face a rectangular digital instrument screen, which brings all major controls "within easy reach".

The Griffith is scheduled to enter production late next year, with the first deliveries in 2019.

The hurricane center said Tuesday Jose had 40 miles per hour winds, and was moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour . Tuesday, Jose was a minimal tropical storm, with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Drivers willing to put their faith in the company and place an order for one of the Griffith Launch Edition models - which, contrary to reports, is not sold out - will have to be relaxed about practical issues such as the car's fuel economy, Carbon dioxide emissions and how safe it will be in the event of an accident.
