The latest sportscar design from boutique British carmaker TVR – the company’s first in over a decade – bowed last weekend at the 2017 Goodwood Revival, and although it gets its motivation from Ford’s familiar 5.0-liter Coyote V8, the new TVR Griffith is anything but ordinary. The engine, which in this application releases its spent gases via a pair of side-exit exhausts, has been fiddled with by Cosworth to produce an awesome 500 brake horsepower while remaining normally-aspirated.
Just as important, the Cosworth-tuned Ford Coyote engine sounds like the devil incarnate.
The video above from Goodwood Road & Racing features a TVR Griffith test mule running the new Cosworth/Ford engine, and if you thought the flat-plane-crank Voodoo used in the current Shelby GT350 was the most exotic-sounding production Ford V8 you’d ever encounter, you’re in for a shock.
