Spotted: Jaguar F-Type SVR. This is the best Jaguar you can buy.

575 horses from a supercharged 5.0 V8. It’s also stupid beautiful, I think this guy (or the dealer) did a custom wrap on the ground effects bits, blue caliper covers, and a hood decal, because I can’t outfit it like this on the website. Kind of subtle but it looks really good.

The SVR starts at $125,950, and I can guarantee you this one cost more than that.

First Look: The TVR Griffith

TVR has unveiled its all new sports car, the TVR Griffith, at the Goodwood Revival. Revealed to media and visitors, the Griffith is the first new TVR to be launched since the company was resurrected in British hands.

Employing Gordon Murray Design’s innovative iStream architecture with carbon composite structure and body panels, the new TVR Griffith weighs just 1250kg, offers exceptional torsional rigidity and a perfect 50:50 weight distribution.

Powering the new TVR Griffith is a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter Cosworth-enhanced V8, which enables 400bhp/tonne and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The new TVR Griffith achieves a top speed of more than 200mph, and accelerates from 0-60mph in less than four seconds.

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. 

Starting from £90,000, production of the new TVR Griffith Launch Edition will begin in late 2018.
