1996 TVR Griffith 500 Convertible - Olympic Blue (1996)




Sorry Now Sold- 2 more Griffith 500 currently in preparation..
1996 TVR Griffith 500
Finished in Olympic Blue Pearl Metallic with Blue Hood, Grey Full Hide Upholstery, Flint Dash, Navy Blue Carpets Edged in Grey to Match Upholstery.
We have Great Pleasure in offering this outstanding Example of the Iconic Griff 500
Ordered on the 28th April 1995 from Team Central TVR in Birmingham to the First Owners specific requirements and First Registered May 1996.
The Car remained in Single Family Ownership up to 2011 when we acquired the Car and Sold It to the last Custodian @ Only 16k Miles.
I seem to recall that In 2011 it was the lowest mileage example on the market and it outshone other examples by a Country Mile - I was very proud to offer the Car and equally pleased that it found an enthusiastic new owner.
I think it is fair to say that I am quite a fussy and meticulous person and it is quite rare that when a car is offered back it is better condition than the day it was supplied ....often it is described as " as good" or "just like the day it left" but rarely is the reality such. In this case the car found the right owner and Hats Off to Mr Shaw, his time and attention has improved a Top Example and quite honestly reversed the ageing process by embarking on an improvement program which has brought the car to the example we see today.
In addition to Comprehensive Servicing the TVR has received a New Set of Toyo Proxes T1-R Tyres, been upgraded to Nitron Shocks and the Suspension Poly Bushed throughout to improve ride, an Alcon 4 Pot Brake Caliper Upgrade has been fitted along with a move to Synthetic Brake Fluid to ensure she stops as well as she goes !
The Engine Bay has been Detailed and treated to a New Set of Blue Silicone Hoses along with New Stainless Coolant Pipes and of which looks highly impressive.
Often referred to as the "Hairy Chested" Spiritual Successor to the Triumph TR6 and the Big Healey's before it the Griff 500 provides an exhillerating drive and is great fun on twisty roads with its 340 bhp on tap, limited slip differential and 0 - 60 performance of 4.2 secs.
The Griffith 500 was the swansong of the Griffith Series and is widely considered the Best.
This Griffith I am sure is amongst the Best Available, Drives superbly and arguably finished in one of the best colour combinations of the decade it looks stunning - Freshly Serviced, Detailed and Ready to Enjoy.
Enquire with confidence they don't get much better than this !.
