TVR first announced that the new Griffith was due in 2019. Then they moved its launch to 2020. Now, though, its plant is getting some much needed renovations, which are expected to start in January 2021.

The update come thanks to an agreement with the Welsh government, where the plant is located. According to Autocar, the work will include replacing the the roof, recladding the structure, some groundwork, and prepare a prototype build area for the Griffith.

Initially, around 80 people will be employed at the Ebbw Vale plant, according to TVR chairman, Les Edgar. TVR Automotive hopes to employ up to 200 people when production is fully ramped up.

“This is a fantastic milestone in our mission to rejuvenate an iconic British brand, and we are all tremendously excited to witness the renovation of our new home,” Edgar told the British outlet. “We have hundreds of faithful depositors worldwide who are patiently waiting to take delivery of their Griffiths, so today I hope they are just as delighted as we are.”

The updates have been in the works since March, when TVR’s new CEO, Jim Berriman, took over. Berriman previously worked with the Rover Group and was instrumental in the launch of the Mk3 Range Rover.

The factory updates are part of an 18-month plan set out by the new CEO in July. The plan also includes a motorsport program and a production capacity of 2,000 units per year.

The Griffith is the car that will relaunch TVR, a historic British sports car marque. It has also been called a cursed company thanks to its repeated financial issues and ownership changes over the years. It was first revealed at Goodwood in 2017 and will be powered by a Ford 5.0-liter V8 making around 500 hp.

According to TVR, it has taken around 500 reservations for the car already, with the initial Launch Edition variant already sold out.

Replaced by the S-Class Coupe in 2014, the Mercedes-Benz CL was the most luxurious two-door model in the brand’s range, and this one has been slightly revised with some aftermarket parts.

One of the most noticeable things of the entire build are the rims. Signed by Cor.Speed and installed by TR Exclusive, the 10-spoke alloys measure 9×21 inches up front and 10.5×21 inches at the rear. they have a gunmetal matte finish and are shod in 255/30 front and 295/25 rear tires.

Bringing the car closer to the tarmac is a lowering module from Cete Automotive, whereas the final upgrade is a sports exhaust system from TR Exclusive. According to Cor.Speed, the part makes the engine sound “more distinctive”, and has likely added a few extra horses to the luxury coupe’s V8. From 2006 to 2011, this used to be a 5.5-liter V8 with 383 HP (388 PS / 285 kW), whereas the facelifted model, which was launched in 2011, had a new 4.7-liter unit with 429 HP (435 PS).

Equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission, the facelifted CL 500, which seems to be the model depicted here, did the 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in a 4.8 seconds, and could hit a maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). The 4Matic all-wheel drive model was equally quick and had an identical top speed.

The pinnacle of the series was the CL 65 AMG, with its 603 HP (612 PS / 450 kW) and 783 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12. This variant was capable of sprinting from rest to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds, while the V-max was also limited to 155 mph.
