TVR Chimaera 4.0 - “Rosso Flipper”
SOLD

“Rosso” for the colour and “Flipper” because we are going to let N719 DCA arch as smoothly as a diving dolphin into new ownership - with minimal splashing please!

This “almost” very sound TVR Chimaera 4.0 Litre is finished in TVR’s Rosso Pearl - with its half hide interior in the much sought after contrasting cream - with carpets in maroon 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 black Mohair. The alloys are standard, in unmarked silver and shod with Toyo (front) and Avon (rear) tyres.

This car was first registered on 5 Sep 1995. It has had only 5 owners over its 23 years life and has covered just over 75,900 miles in that time. Information and paper records would appear to have been lost by the first owner. Thereafter the documentation is plentiful. The car passed its last MOT in July 2013 before the final owner parted with the car to a TVR dealership in that year. It has been in dry storage ever since.

As the photos show, N719 DCA is quite a handsome example in terms of its bodywork and interior condition. The car is equipped with the 4.0 Litre power unit, which was originally claimed to develop 240bhp and to deliver 0-60 mph in under 5 secs and reach 100 mph in about 12 secs. Top speed was marketed as being just over 150 mph.

So far so good. However, we have to be honest and Str8six never hides anything!

Unfortunately, if you know what you are looking for, you will see that this Chimaera’s nearside outrigger is holed behind one of the body mounting gussets. In addition the differential is noisy (not unusual for a car of this mileage).

Under normal circumstances, Str8six would address these two issues and market the car with a warranty and our well known “All the 12s” sales support package. However, we don’t have the workshop capacity to address these 2 issues as we enter the TVR season.

Nevertheless, we are in no doubt that N719 DCA can be turned into a lovely car for a small outlay of funds or labour. So we have elected to offer the car without a warranty as a trade sale. This car is a bargain and is certainly worth viewing if you are looking for a heavily discounted Chimaera. We will of course show you the areas which need to be addressed.

Overall mileage - 75,922
