It was only a month ago that TVR unveiled the new Griffith, a new two-seater front-engine sports car, packing some 500 horsepower in a package weighing no more than 1,250 kg. 

The automaker even achieved a 50-50 weight distribution, while also offering a 400 horsepower/tonne power-to-weight ratio. On paper, it is enough to get you from zero to 100 km/h in under 4 seconds. 

Relevant to the particular rendering by E Milano, is the fact that TVR used Gordon Murray's iStream process on the chassis, bonding inner carbon-fibre panels onto a steel frame for increased rigidity. 

As you well know, taking off the roof of a car will almost always compromise torsional rigidity meaning that additional beams and panels have to be inserted in order to make up for what was lost. Naturally, this results in more weight, which in turn will affect acceleration and handling. 

We wouldn't put it past TVR to figure out a way to make a convertible version of the Griffith that handles and accelerates almost as good, if not as well as the Coupe. So far, no such plans have been revealed, as the first 500 units of the car are scheduled to meet their new owners no sooner than early 2019. In the end, we find this study really interesting to look at, especially since the designer eliminated the windows and C-pillar in order to come up with a more streamlined aesthetic.
