TVR Chimaera 4.0 Conv. “Starmist Constellation!”
Under Offer

This lovely looking TVR Chimaera 4.0 litre is now available following a careful programme of fine fettling and beautification by Str8six.

S265 TND, has gleaming Starmist blue bodywork, and a roof trimmed in navy blue Mohair. The "half hide" interior is in dark blue and contrasting Magnolia. The carpets are in deep blue, bound in blue. The dashboard is Walnut veneered and houses instruments with clear white faces. There is also an attractive complement of aluminium cockpit features.

The car is not fitted with air conditioning (very few Chimaeras were), but it does feature Factory-installed power assisted steering. ICE is provided by a Pioneer system (believed to be original equipment - so that’s good for provenance!), with Pioneer door speakers.

The car was first registered on 1 Oct 1998. It has since covered only 42,140 miles in 22 years. That is an average of just over 1,900 miles per year. (And actually, over the last 15 years, the car was driven only 1,000 mils per annum)

S265 TND does not benefit from a provenance file packed out with invoices and documents. However, the available records, the MOT history and the book of main dealer services (signed and stamped) does testify to a sequence of 5 conscientious owners.

When S265 TND was offered to Str8six, we had already serviced the car twice since 2009. We also reviewed the car’s Government-maintained MOT records. (Just input “Check MOT History” and the Reg No in a search engine). You will find the car had some minor observations prior to 2008 - but a very clean bill of heath thereafter.

Once in Str8six’s hands, given the car’s potential, we took no prisoners. We replaced the chassis outriggers and we also went through the suspension and renewed any item that might give trouble in the future. This process included the replacement of front and rear wishbones and suspension bushes.

So, S265 TND is now in very good condition inside, outside and underneath! The Mohair roof is also very presentable. The car’s 4.0 litre engine is also in fine fettle and should be producing 240 bhp and 270 ft lbs of torque. TVR claimed it should be capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 5.1 secs and of reaching a top speed of just over 150 mph.

And for your peace of mind, S265 TND will of course be supplied with Str8six's renowned “All the 12s“ delivery specification - i.e.
FULL 12,000 mile service, 12 months TAX, 12 months MOT and 12 months/12,000 miles FULL WEAR and TEAR WARRANTY, plus a 12v battery trickle charger.

Overall mileage - 41,140
