The Griffith™ Series 200 had introduced Griffith™ as a new contender to the sports car title. The Griffith™ Series 400 was meant to take the belt by knockout. Staying true to the Series 200’s forte of razor-sharp handling and unparalleled power-to-weight ratio, the Series 400 added a host of refinements to further distinguish it as the performance car to beat. The ultra-light TVR-sourced chassis benefited from the evolution from Mk III to Mk IV Grantura, improvements heralded by the handsome “Manx-tail” redesign and sloping rear glass. The new look wasn’t just an aesthetic gain; the larger backlight dramatically increased the Griffith’s luggage capacity—yielding more room for Corvette and Cobra scalps!In addition, many of the lessons Griffith™ learned during Series 200 production made their way into the Series 400, particularly in the areas of cooling and driveline durability. And finally, the high-performance 271-horse Ford 289 V-8 was now standard equipment. Backed exclusively by a close-ratio 4-speed, this potent combo made this the best Griffith™ yet when it came to humbling all comers at the track.This 1:43 masterpiece showcases what many consider to be the definitive Griffith™ model. Bold, taut, aggressive; the Series 400’s British influence is unmistakable, but it carries an American brashness that makes performance promises only a machine as capable as the Griffith™ Series 400 could live up to. Automodello™ is founded on a commitment to authenticity and this Series 400—like all models in the Griffith™ line—is officially endorsed by Andrew “Jack” Griffith himself and posthumously by the Griffith family. With Jack’s and the family's approval, Automodello is confident the precision replica you will hold in your hands is the ultimate example of the Griffith™ Series 400 in scale, and a must-have for fans and collectors.
