TVR Chimaera 500 Chimaera finished in Cobalt Blue and this Chimaera's half hide interior is in the most sought after contrasting colourways - deep Blue and cream - with carpets in deep Blue with cream binding. The dashboard has just been beautifully refinished in deep walnut veneer and features white instrument faces. There is a nearly full complement of Leven Technology aluminium cockpit componentry. The roof is trimmed in Navy Blue Mohair. The alloys are standard, in unmarked silver and shod with Toyo Proxes T1Rs. Everything is in lovely cosmetic condition.

The car has been driven just under 34,000 miles since it was first registered in Oct 1996. Unfortunately the car has a hole in its service records. But relax! The most recent owner purchased the car in Spring 2014 at which time the car had not been used for 7 years. So let's look at the technical status of the car. Having acquired the car in March 2014, the last owner immediately took the car to experienced TVR dealer, Neil Garner TVR. A full report was prepared and consequently the engine received a new camshaft and a new alternator at 31.607 miles in April. The following month the entire brake system was overhauled and new discs, pads and braided hoses were installed. In July, Powers Performance addressed the engine's tuning.

The following year, in June 2015, the owner treated the car to a set of brand new Toyo Proxes T1Rs - but these have covered less than 1,900 miles since. In October that year, the car came to Str8six for a full 12,000 mile service and all fuel pipes were replaced with marine grade items and new engine mounts were fitted. More recently, in March 2016, the car returned to Str8six for a 6,000 mile service. We also carried out a small amount of technical rectification, which included replacing suspension components. We can vouch for the chassis, which is in very good order.

Having put the car into very sound technical order, the last owner reluctantly offered the car back to Str8six after driving it just 2,300 miles during his 2 1/2 years ownership.

This Classic British Sportscar will come with the complete piece of mind afforded by Str8six's renowned "All the 12s" delivery specification - i.e. 12,000 mile service, 12 months TAX and MOT, and 12 months/12,000 miles "no quibble" FULL WEAR and TEAR WARRANY, plus a 12 volt battery trickle charger. The car has a slimline spare wheel in the boot and will come with a jump cable and jack. There is also an Anderson connector tactically placed in the engine bay!

The car does not have power assisted steering, and it is not fitted with air conditioning.

ICE is provided by a Pioneer DEH X2900UI CD RDS receiver with i-Pod and Android interface.
