TVR Griffith 500 - 1995 - “Purple Cream”
For sale at £28,000

This very handsome TVR Griffith 500 is in lovely, useable condition and features a relatively low, DVLA verified Odometer Reading. N467 XFJ also has a low ownership count and has clearly been cherished by each one of its 5 only private owners over the last 23 years.

“Purple Cream?” Best Google that title! Suffice to say it implies its “Good for evening and night time… recreational use” …so, perhaps an appropriate name tag for a gorgeous Griffith like this one (or maybe not).

We doubt you will have seen a Griffith in this stunning colour before! Originally this TVR was finished in a slightly questionable Purpley Mauve. As this paint finish needed attention, Str8six created another of our Signature Colours. (These are colours reserved for particularly special examples of the very special TVRs we sell).

So, N467 XFJ is finished in “Royal Purple”, which changes its hue depending on the light and time of day - as captured in the accompanying photos. The vehicle’s cockpit is fully trimmed in cream and dark blue, complemented by dark blue carpeting, bound in blue. The dash top has a dark blue upper surface (so no reflections in the screen), and the dashboard fascia itself is Walnut veneered. The instruments are white faced with Leven aluminium bezels and there are Leven aluminium control buttons. As you will have noted from the photos, we have upgraded the car’s wheels and tyres with brand new split rim alloys. These are in keeping with the OE OZ Racing option that was offered
“back in the day”. These run on brand new Toyo Proxes tyres. This Griffith is in confidence-inspiring condition and it is clearly a very collectable Classic! Indeed, in less than 2 years, it will be eligible for export to the U S of A! Imagine the stir it would very likely cause if unveiled over there!

First registered in September 1995, this Griff has covered an average of just over 1,500 miles per year. The engine is a 5.0 litre V8, which is standard internally but which has engine management incorporating a Mark Adams “Tornado” Chip. TVR quoted this power unit as developing 340 bhp and 350 lb ft of torque - and it is claimed to be good for 0-60 mph in 4.1 secs, with a top speed of 169 mph. The gearbox is the standard, very durable Borg Warner T5 unit and power transfer is via a GKN limited slip differential. The car’s ICE system comprises a modern Alpine head unit powering 4 speakers. Air conditioning is not fitted and the car is not equipped with servo assisted steering (although it could be at additional cost).

Over the last 4 years the car was effectively mothballed prior to its purchase by Str8six. The whole car is now in lovely cosmetic condition for its age and mileage, and it will have been brought technically right up to the mark again before it is handed over to its next owner.

The car will come with its very impressive Personalised Classic Car History Folio derived from Classic Folios Ltd. This contains the car’s entire documentation, including factory brochures, technical invoices, and historical records relevant invoices and many useful documents. MOT certificates are available - from 1998 to 2013.

Str8six has every confidence in this specific Griffith, which we will therefore supply with our renowned "All the 12s" handover specification - i.e.
Full 12,000 miles service completed, 12 months MOT and 12 months TAX. In addition, the car will benefit from our unrivalled 12 months/12,000 miles FULL WEAR and TEAR WARRANTY, which covers PARTS and LABOUR on the WHOLE CAR The car will also be supplied with an inbuilt 12 volt trickle charger.
