TVR Tuscan Mk2 4.0S Targa - “Sweet Purple”

“Sweet Purple?” Back in 2004, Racing Green TVR was planning to introduce a new TVR Tuscan Show car/demonstrator for the 2005 season. Obviously, the car needed to be stunning, striking and attention - grabbing.

And so it was that a very special colour was chosen. This colour was to be based on the Purple wrapper of a Quality Street sweet. Racing Green TVR’s Sales Manager took such a wrapper to the famous “Gerbil” - TVR’s Master painter - at the TVR factory in Blackpool. And the result, after a fair degree of trialling by the pair, was this stunning “Purple Pearl” Tuscan - commissioned in July 2004 and delivered to Racing Green TVR on 23 Dec 2004 - which you see advertised here!

And, as an aside, if you search for “Quality Street” on Google Images, and check the sweet at 11 o’clock in the second picture, you will see the origin of this car’s colour. And if you open the main photo you will read Quality Street’s words, as follows:

The Purple One “It's the nation's favourite, but if this regal coloured choc is your “Go To” treat then you are more likely to be organised, having all your Christmas presents bought and wrapped early doors. You're calm and collected - more likely to melt into the background than crave attention.”

Well they got that last bit wrong! This colour isn’t for shrinking violets! And Str8six has made this Tuscan even more stunning. We decided an awesome colour like “Purple Pearl” needed our Powder-coated Chrome Spider alloys, rather than Black anthracite wheels. It’s got them now!

So, back to the facts! This is a VERY fine example of this sought after Sportscar - in Tuscan Mk2 guise and to 4.0 litre S specification. First registered on New Years Day 2005 and now it has a total of only 4 owners. This beautiful car is in very good technical condition and its body is once again unmarked and gleaming! The interior is trimmed to half hide specification. The dash, binnacles and lower tray are finished in black with purple stitching. The doors are trimmed to match in black with dark grey alcantara centres. The seats are in smooth black leather with perforated black centres - in full leather. The rooflining is in black Alcantara. The carpets are black with purple binding.

The car runs on 18” TVR Spider alloys finished in “Str8six Chrome”, fitted with Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tyres - all round of course (in both senses of the words!). The exhaust system is standard and the polished stainless tips of the OE Carbon can exhausts complement the car’s alloys nicely! It is equipped with air conditioning and the in car audio is a Phillips GEM 300B DAB Audio system with i-Phone, i-Pod and MP3 interface - with a black fascia, which suits the interior styling of this Tuscan Mk2.

Talking of which, a Tuscan 2 has cutting edge cockpit design, featuring revolutionary and unique shapes enhanced by CNC machined real metal componentry. None of your insipid plastic switchgear here! And there is nothing insipid about the way this TVR handles and performs! This is no sanitised, mainstream “sportscar”. TVRs have tubural spaceframe chassis - like a racecar - and the entire suspension can be set up to handle the way the owner wants. The Journos say that a real sportscar is about steering feel and the driver being at one with the car! You’ve got it with this car!! This is the E-Type Jaguar of the 21
st Century; sexy, high powered and eye catching - and affordable! And like an E-Type, this Tuscan is an appreciating asset. Currently its £100,000 cheaper than an E-Type. But you may find the gap closes over the next 20 years ….. ?!

This particular Tuscan has a fully stamped Service Record by date and by mileage, plus a full provenance record including original Order Forms and Conformity Certificates plus a comprehensive file of supporting invoices. RX54 MUV will be supplied with a full
Str8six pre delivery service and inspection, 4 wheel Geometry aligned, and with 12 months MOT. It will come with a 12 months/12.000 miles Full Wear and Tear warranty covering parts and labour on the entire vehicle, and it will be taxed for 12 months. It will even have an inbuilt Accumate battery charger and an Anderson cable supplied.

Overall mileage - 52,325
