  • Description

    This beautifully appointed Chimaera is offered for sale by us, on behalf of one of our most valued clients. A long term TVRCC member and with an impeccable history and MOT record backing up the fantastic condition the car is in.


    As with all TVR’s, buying on condition is key & with this particular car, you’d be very hard pushed to better it. With sought after optional power assisted steering, the car is a breeze to drive in all conditions. Being a later model, it has the serpentine engine, which is cross bolted and has a better reputation than the earlier units. As a package the later cars are slightly more refined and are somewhat better resolved as a product, which is evident when entering the cabin.


    The interior, boot and engine bay all show just how well this car has been cared for, no expense spared, garaged and loved. The car even has a full-sized spare wheel to go with it, along with some other spares the new owner may decide to use.


    With Peter Wheeler being a tall man, this era of TVR were designed to give plenty of cabin space for even the loftiest of occupant. With a large boot space, Chimaera’s make for an ideal weekend getaway car. With fabulous performance, noise and handling, they really do tick all of the boxes!


    The starmist crimson paintwork is in great overall condition with minimal stone chipping for the cars age, the interior is in similar shape, as near to immaculate as you’ll find, having always been used with additional over-mats to protect the originals. To finish the aesthetics, the alloys have recently been refurbed in anthracite, which really compliment the car.


    Mechanically the car performs perfectly, cooling as it should and riding beautifully. The chassis is solid and although would be improved with a re-paint, the overall condition is testament to the way in which the car has been looked after throughout its life.

  • Technical specification

    Over the years the car has benefited from a few sensible upgrades, listed below:

    • CPO Power steering pipe upgrades
    • Magnecor HT leads.
    • Ceramic plug extenders.
    • Full alloy Leven dash kit.
    • & The all-important sports exhaust upgrade!


    The car has also been polished and ceramic coated by us for a long-lasting shine.

    Whether you’re considering your first or fifteenth TVR, you simply can’t go wrong with a well-cared for 400. All of the noises they are so renowned for, space and comfort and plenty of power to enjoy. In such wonderful condition you’ll be getting approving nods, thumbs ups and big grins from all other road users. The most important thing will be the gigantic grin you’ll have on your face every time you take it out. If you’ve never driven one, ignore the pub talk, they actually drive fantastically, with great weight distribution and an LSD from the factory, they can be loads of fun!


    This car is sensibly priced considering its provenance, so I’d recommend registering your interest early. Especially with the great weather we are currently experiencing, there simply is no better time to join the TVRCC!
