The 2016 London Motor Show is underway, with reborn British sportscar-maker TVR dropping by to give showgoers a taste of its forthcoming front-engine coupe, expected by many to wear the “Griffith” badge.

A teaser image of the car is shown above, and according to Motor Authority, it will be powered by a Cosworth-tuned version of the Ford Mustang GT‘s Coyote V8. This is in-line with reports from December of last year. How much extra power Cosworth will coax out of the Coyote mill is still left to be seen; as it stands, the engine produces 415 peak horsepower in its European guise.

Interestingly, Motor Authority reports that a 1960s TVR Griffith 400 was also present at the TVR stand in London – a car which borrowed Ford’s “HiPo” Windsor V8. Of course, the new TVR’s Cosworth-modified Coyote will certainly outproduce that car’s comparatively humble 271 horsepower. TVR’s new sportscar will also debut a new “iStream” construction technique pioneered by F1 race car designer Gordon Murray, which ought to lend it extraordinary rigidity and lightness.
