Auction Block: 1965 Griffith Series 200

Mar 25, 2020

Category: Rides

Comprised of the tubular steel frame and fiberglass body housing from a TVR Grantura, housing a 260ci Ford V8 (later a 289ci mill) married to a four-speed transmission, the Griffith Series 200 was originally engineered to take aim at the iconic AC Cobra. Built by and named after Andrew “Jack” Griffith, the Series 200 was also badged as a TVS for the UK market, though in total less than 200 examples were produced.

With a Cobra V8 engine shoehorned into the diminutive TVR — which originally housed an inline-four engine – the Griffith was capable of sub-5-second 0-60mph times which was quite the feat for a 1960s car. And while the regular production specimens are all extremely rare finds, RM Sotheby’s has an even more special example slated to soon cross the auction block. On offer is a 1965 Griffith Series 200 prototype and third-generation factory development car. Over the last half-century, the 200 prototype has traded hands numerous times, receiving a plethora of performance engine upgrades along the way. Being offered without reserve, this example – which is stamped with the ultra-low chassis no. of “200/5/002” — is scheduled to go under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s Elkhart Collection sale in early May 2020.
