TVR Sagaris 4.0 Coupe. “Lambotango”
SOLD

When you evaluate the mileage covered, and the technical and cosmetic standard of preparation of SAG 23 (which registration number will stay with this car), then you are looking at “Possibly The Best... Better than All the Rest“ of the Sagaris currently available.

This is an exceptional example of Blackpool TVR’s Halo Sportscar model and there are a couple more reasons why this car is so desirable. First, this Sagaris is finished in one of the most exceptional colours TVR ever used: Arancio Pearl - (colloquially known as “Lamborghini Orange”! Second, it has had only 3 extremely caring owners. And third, this is one of the lowest mileage Sagaris in existence - having averaged under 900 miles per annum since it left the TVR factory 15 years ago!

The car is in superb condition. The exterior colour has just been addressed by our specialist paintshop to alleviate a very small number of stone chips and it is as perfect as the photos suggest. The interior is factory standard except that the door cards are in Str8six’s Straked design - in black padded leather with orange stitching. The photographs provide a better description than my keyboard can.

London TVR registered this car as V13 ASH for its first owner on 1 Sep 2005. Within 3 weeks the car had pewter alloys, a full set of Nitrons and a Tracker installed. The car received a centre bonnet catch (for security reasons) the following March. At its Sept 07 service the car’s gearbox was uprated to close ratio specification and the differential was re-built with a 3.9:1 ratio. The first owner then sold the car with some 8,500 miles on the clock to a Jaguar dealership.

On 14 May 10, the car was registered to its second owner and it moved from Oxfordshire to North Yorkshire. The new owner covered approximately 1,000 miles during the first year of his tenure and it was at the end of that year that SAG 23 began to come to Str8six for its servicing. But the car was never driven to or from Lewknor. Instead, it was collected from, and delivered back to Doncaster, each year, by our transporter lorry. And the car was serviced scrupulously throughout the next 6 years, when it was hardly being driven at all, because the owner had regrettably encountered heath problems. Indeed, following the last service in his ownership (in March 2016) the car covered just 6 more miles - 3 miles in each direction for its annual MOT Certification.

Ultimately, and with great regret, the second owner asked us if we would like to buy his car because he was clearly not going to drive it in the years to come. When we purchased SAG 23, the car had covered just 2,120 miles over the preceding 7 years.

The car was parked at Str8six when the next owner dropped his immaculate Tuscan in for service and saw SAG 23 parked outside. Within weeks this Sagaris was added to his collection! Over the next 3 years he added under 900 miles per annum. Ultimately he decided he was not using it enough to keep it and felt it should be made available to someone who would drive the car.

And so it is that we are now able to offer this beautiful Sagaris to a fourth, very lucky owner for £10,000 less than the price at which TVR Manufacturing Ltd is selling this car’s successor, the TVR Griffith, to a new generation of TVR owners. And it may well be that the new Les Edgar/Gordon Murray Griffith will not be available until 2 years hence… Is this the car you should choose to enjoy until the Griffith finally arrives, and to keep as an investment thereafter?

This Sagaris does of course have air conditioning, its cockpit has the full complement of Leven aluminium components, and it has a Pioneer EEQ MOSFET 50W x 4 sound system playing through NXT speakers - manufactured by a company with which Steve Jobs was involved. The car’s 18” Spider alloys are finished in tungsten anthracite and they are, like the car’s bodywork, entirely unmarked.

The car will be supplied with Str8six’s renowned “All the 12’s“ handover specification. This includes a
comprehensive 12,000 mile (with valve clearance) service and 12 Months MOT and 12 months TAX. It will also benefit from Str8six’s own 12 months/12,000 miles “FULL WEAR and TEAR” WARRANTY covering PARTS and LABOUR on the whole car. It will have a 12 volt trickle charger and an Anderson cable supplied and it will come with its own “Specialised Covers” indoor car cover.

SAG23 is equipped with an RAC Trackstar Plus vehicle tracking system.
