TVR CHIMAERA - £16,500 ono
TVR Chimaera 4.0 HC in Starmist Green. This car benefits from a full MBE ignition upgrade costing £3,000, this upgrade removes the distributor and airflow meter and fits a crank sensor, new ECU and coil packs together with all new wiring. This eliminates all Chimaera clutch judder and results in totally smooth uptake on acceleration. The benefits also extend to 30 MPG on 98 octane fuel on a good run. (The emissions for MOT are exceptionally low). There is a massive history file with the car including invoices exceeding £40,000. During my ownership of almost 5 years the car has been totally reliable, I have just returned from a 1000 mile tour of the isle of Man and Lake district.
The car benefits from from a Tuscan style headlamp conversion and rear light conversion costing £1800, other enhancements include re-trim in pastel grey leather to contrast with the green, far better than the original biscuit colour., full leven technology switchgear, new speedo as original at times refused to read below 25 MPH, a new set of TVR mats still in wrappers, but originals still in excellent order, there is a folding 'surrey roof' together with the original heavy one piece item, both in great condition.
At 50,000 miles the car was treated to a refresh at TVR power resulting in a complete rebuild costing £3814. A new high efficiency alloy radiator is fitted. The exhaust manifolds have been lagged to reduce under bonnet temperatures and in 2012 new upgraded front wishbones were fitted together with Gaz gold shocks and springs, front and rear.
The differential was replaced in 2014. A new clutch was fitted just before the MBE system was fitted.
as you can see the car has been well cared for. the body condition is excellent, very few stone chips, as some body work was carried out 5 years ago.Many comment just how shiny the car is
One thing the car could do with is
a new dash veneer as the original has cracked which is quite common on these cars.The underside and outriggers are in very good condition with regular coats of waxoyl over the years to protect them..
As you can see the car has been well loved and well maintained over the years
The TVR number plate will stay with the car providing the sale price is acceptable.
