Cobra killer: 1966 TVR Griffith Series 200

ScreenShot003

These little fiberglass cars were called, when built in this configuration, “Cobra killers” and that’s not hard to figure out why.

Less than 200 of these little monsters were made for the US market: this is a 50 years old car but that’s nothing old in its performance: thanks to its low weight mated to a Ford 298 c.i. V8 engine, producing 270 h.p., this rascal goes from 0 to 60 m.h.p. in less than four seconds and can run up to 150 m.p.h., if you are brave enough.

Of course, such power and such short wheelbase make this car a toy for who has driving skills higher than average: this car looks a toy but it could easily transform itself in a dangerous weapon. Restoring it is not an hard job but we are waiting to see how high the reserve price is. Find it for sale here in Portland, OR. with bidding at $25,000 and reserve not met.
