Lot 231: TVR Chimaera

Classics Cars, Barons (10 September 2006)

TVR have been producing sports cars at their Blackpool premises since 1958 but is only recently that the company has become a major player in the sports car world.The days of the Kit Car image are long gone and the current offerings, from this small manufacturer, now compete with the likes of Porsche on the world stage.The example offered here is one the first of the newer breed. The Chimaera offered huge amounts of torque and power from its 4.0 litre V8, giving the model outstanding levels of performance and an unmistakable TVR sound.Finished in metallic Rolex blue with cream hide interior, the car has covered only 29,800 miles at the time of writing, which is supported by full TVR dealer history. The overall condition of the car is commensurate with such low mileage.
