Tuscan Mk1 4.0S Targa 2003/52
- Test Drive
Let’s start with the most salient feature. This is a TVR Tuscan Mk1 4.0 Litre “S” which was first registered on 1 Feb 2003. So, as the TVR fraternity knows, it was likely to need an engine re-build eventually! And the answer to the question “Has it had an engine rebuild?” is “Yes”.
The engine was fully re-worked at the TVR factory and signed off in August 2006. That was just 4 months before the Factory finally closed its doors. Str8six has checked this engine and, not surprisingly, it does have the latest specification cylinder block, camshafts and finger followers!
The car is finished in striking Grigio Titanio, enhanced by fully refurbished Shadow Chrome Spider alloys. The eye catching exterior is complemented by a cockpit trimmed in Mulberry half hide with black carpets bound in Mulberry.
This TVR Tuscan’s condition and service record confirms it was well cared for by each of its six owners, and the car sports a number of desirable extras. Apart from the Shadow Chrome Spiders, it has the latest specification Tuscan S Mk3 Bilstein shock absorbers and Eibach springs (developed for TVR by the highly respected Lee Noble). These have ensured that this Tuscan has one of the best possible ride/handling compromises.
The car also has brand new Toyo Tyres and it has been 4 wheel aligned on our Optiline system by “Geo” George, so the car does indeed handle far more reassuringly - and without the “fake news”, “twitchy” handling commonly ascribed to Mk1 Tuscans.
This Tuscan had a new AP Racing Clutch, slave cylinder and thrust bearing fitted less than 6,000 miles ago. The car has also been equipped with a heavy duty starter motor and the Chassis has been Wax Oyl’d. It has a re-cored radiator and it sports a carbon and red rocker cover and spark plug cover. The rear window has the improved stainless steel clip system with the ergonomic thumb screws, and the car has the improved windscreen washer jets fitted. The exhaust system was De-Catted in July 2017, and a brand new differential was fitted the following month.
LA52EEX will be supplied with Str8six's renowned "All the 12’s” handover specification. This will include a full 12,000 mile service incl. valve clearances (and 4 wheel alignment already completed), 12 months MOT and 12 months TAX, along with 12 months FULL WEAR AND TEAR WARRANTY (PARTS and LABOUR), a 12 volt trickle charger and an Anderson Jump Start lead.
