The Original TVR Griffith 200 Makes an Amazing Noise

That 289 cubic-inch Ford V-8 has one hell of a soundtrack.

The original TVR Griffith was designed to take on the Shelby Cobra. Like the Cobra, it was a lightweight British car with a big American V-8 stuffed under the hood. It sounds extremely good.

This particular Griffith 200 has been prepped to compete in historic racing, with its 289 cubic-inch Ford V-8 rebuilt to make around 400 horsepower. It looks stunning, and makes a wonderful noise. Here, listen for yourself, and make sure to turn the volume up.
