1996 TVR Chimaera 400 finished in Starmist silver with Navy roof and matching leather interior with heated seats.Moted 16/2/17 with no advisories and perfect on emission readings, the car was serviced at the same time. T5 gearbox and Serpentine engine.PAS, HPI clear. FSH mostly TVR or specialist. 2 keys 2 Alarm fobs.

This is a unique opportunity to purchase a car that has been stored in a dry heated TVR specialist showroom for the last 10 years and the condition of the paint and interior reflect this, but more importantly so does the condition of the chassis which I had the chance to check over thoroughly prior to purchase at Scole Engineering ( the previously mention specialist ) and it is in amazing condition and has never been welded so is as strong as it was the day it left the factory with only minor powder coat flacking in one small area. This car's chassis also benefits from the silver powder coating which is believed to be better than the later white powder coating on newer models. The chassis is also freshly waxoyled to protect it.

Scole, prior to selling recommissioned and carrying out the following items:
Full service, inc brake and clutch fluid
New discs and pads all round inc 280mm brake upgrade.
All hoses replaced with goodridge black silicon items.
New fuel lines.
New fuel pump.
Injectors cleaned
Drive belts changes.
New stepper motor.
New upper and lower front wish bones.

I have a letter from Scole engineering to back up the history as well as the GOV website MOT checker tallying up. I'm sure any potential purchaser could contact Scole and check this out for piece of mind. The car is HPI clear.


The car's year means it also benefits from the stronger T5 gearbox and serpentine engine which has covered only 54,750 miles and is completely standard as is the rest of the car making it a great future investment. The car starts hot or cold with no issue and pulls strong in every gear and is definitely a quick 400 .This car is also with out a doubt the best Chimaera I have driven and the third in my ownership.

The interior of this car is in good original condition with recently replaced carpets. This car also has very rare factory fitted heated leather seats which make open top driving on cooler mornings much more comfortable, aluminium dash and accents. All the electrics work well.

If required the car can be put over a pit for inspection and plugged into Rover Gauge to check for any issue, This is how confident I am there are no issues with this car. Take it and enjoy it for the summer.

The only exception to the standard statement are: brand new Calibre wheels with yokohama ad08 tyres. 16" front 17" rears. Also the centre exhaust box has been sleeved to enhance the sound. both of these minor mods are easily reversed.

I am selling this beauty as I want to trade up to a more powerful TVR but must be convertible or Targa roofed. W.H.Y or maybe an Elise R. Advert Date: 2017-01-29
