TVR Chimaera 4.0 - Blue Eyes!
For sale at £18,000

“Blue Eyes?” Seems reasonable, given that this very sound TVR Chimaera 4.0 Litre is finished in Porsche” Iris Blue” - and its no way a long-stemmed flower! But its half hide interior is in the most sought after contrasting colour - cream - with carpets in deep Blue with cream binding. The dashboard is finished in Walnut veneer and features white instrument faces. There is a full complement of Leven Technology aluminium cockpit componentry. The roof is trimmed in blue Mohair. The alloys are standard, in unmarked silver and shod with Toyo Proxes tyres.

This car was first registered on 13 May 1999. It has had only 4 owners during its short (;-) ) 18 years life and has covered just under 78,000 miles in that time. The second owner acquired the vehicle in 2001 and looked after it conscientiously thereafter. The third owner bought the car from Str8six in Sept 2014 and covered a mere 570 miles in his 16 months tenure. The most recent, fourth, owner reluctantly offered the car back to Str8six after driving it a more respectable 3,800 miles during his 12 months ownership. The reason for sale is that he has had a career promotion and expects to move to Singapore.

This TVR has a very full TVR Service History, carried out at TVR main dealerships and respected independent TVR specialists. And
MOST IMPORTANTLY, following Str8six's purchase of T88 TVR from its third owner, it has had a body off chassis outrigger renewal operation carried out at our Newark Division (retail price £3000+ VAT).

The car has power assisted steering, but is not fitted with air conditioning. ICE is provided by an Alpine CDE 1778T head unit which is a CD receiver with Bluetooth capability and features an in-dash, single slot CD facility.

T88 TVR is a very handsome example. This Chimaera has undamaged bodywork and the interior is original, and in extremely nice condition. The car is equipped with the 4.0 Litre power unit, which develops 240bhp and delivers 0-60 mph in 5.1 secs and reaches 100 mph in about 12 secs. Top speed is just over 150 mph.

This Classic British Sportscar will come with the complete piece of mind afforded by Str8six's renowned “All the 12s“ delivery specification -
i.e. Full 12,000 mile service, 12 months TAX, along with 12 months MOT, and 12 months/12,000 miles “no quibble” FULL WEAR AND TEAR WARRANTY covering PARTS and LABOUR plus a 12 volt battery trickle charger. The car has a slimline spare wheel in the boot and will come with a jump cable and jack. The distinctive Reg No T88 TVR will remain with the car.

Overall mileage - 77,880
