Highly Original Collectable Early Car
70,000 Miles With Complete History
Cherry Bomb Bullet Silencers

The Car
The TVR Chimaera remains one of the best TVR's ever to leave Blackpool's
factory. With its Rover 4 litre V8 the soundtrack is glorious and has
enough punch for hours of fun, whilst still requiring careful handling
the car delivers effortless performance weighing very little indeed,
an apparent ability to offer up seemingly limitless swells of torque
and sheer grunt when asked keeps you on the ball, driving it quickly
requires good skills. The early model and some say the best Chimaera
looks awesome in Brooklands Green and Biscuit cabin which is similar
though superior to the Magnolia, in my opinion. The early model cars
have the door entry reliably where it should be. And of course, this
is the non power steering version which is to my mind preferable
creating a more hands on drive and proper feel that power assistance
can never give.

Direct in part exchange from the owner of 10 years with only 4 other
keepers on record. The car was sourced for him by none other than the
late Peter Wheeler himself, tasked at the time to find the best 12 year
old car he could acquire. Beautiful condition and a perfect driver,
never tracked or smashed.

The History 11 Stamps + Considerable Paperwork
Prepped and pre delivery inspected and registered on 11.01.95 by TVR
dealer Station Hill Garage. This is a stock example with a no add ons
and all the better for it, right down the original working stereo and
speakers. Crucially it has a superb history including the leather
vehicle passport containing the owners handbook and service history.
A file of supporting bills date all the way back together with a
comprehensive MOT record. As a precautionary measure it has been fitted
with a manual cooling fan override that has never had to be used but
gives peace of mind.

The Cherry Bomb exhaust system does not make the car dramatically louder,
however is a true cherry bomb system with bullet style silencers, retaining
the perforated sections. It does not increase volume too much, but makes
the car much more throaty when put under load. You can cruise comfortably
with it, and it gives a great sound when you want it to. The fitting and
manufacture is also top notch and with lots of machine gun bangs and
crackles on the overrun, pure driving enjoyment.

The coach work is superb with minimal marks & little in any way that
belies its age. Everything is working order as checked. The paint looks
to be pretty much original presenting remarkably well with good finish
and of course they do not rust. All of the panels are free from dings
and it presents with a depth of shine having being kept well detailed.

The rims also appear original finish and in very tidy order with the
correct finish. The tyres are all recent and are a matching set of Dunlop
SP Sports and it rides and handles beautifully on these.

It would be a hard task to find a better early more desirable Chimera that
has been serviced so well and is found complete with all the correct bits.
Buy a good one now while they are still affordable.
