My TVR CHIMAERA has been a fantastic member of the family for the last four years. We have loved the car, taken it on many holidays and on lots of TVR Car Club runs and weekends away. We"ve now been tempted by another TVR, so have made the difficult decision to sell the CHIMAERA. Last year it did 1,200 miles to Le Mans and back in the pouring rain without a single issue and was an absolute joy!

Massive folder full of detailed receipts and invoices in chronological order.Original handbook and fully stamped service book .Everything works! Car drives perfectly smooth and is completely reliable. Dyno chart showing a very good power and torque curve. I"ve owned this car for 4 years. Previous owner owned for 5 years.
Roof needs replacing. It"s useable, but looking a bit tired. Rear window is fairly recent. Carpets need replacingPaintwork is generally good, but there are a few scuffs and stone chips and some light bubbling on the front wing. Drivers door and boot lid could do with adjustment for a better fit
