TVR Chimaera 500 Mk3 5.0 in Cooper Green Dream. This example is one of the last of the limited number of genuine Mk3 versions equipped with faired in headlamps and the more compliant, GT version of TVR's firmer Griffith Sports suspension. It is also equipped with the 5 litre engine - as incorporated in the most powerful version of the Griffith. So it looks pretty similar to a Griffith and goes like one too.

And Y72 CGJ's condition is far from average. The bodywork is in outstanding condition and finished in GLEAMING Cooper Green. This colour has been enhanced by the incorporation of a nicely judged metalflake content. The exterior colour is complemented by an interior trimmed in Magnolia leather and green carpeting. The seats are of course Cerbera seats - the factory's specification for the Mk3 Chimaera. The car's ICE is provided by a Pioneer head/CD changer unit playing through two front and two rear speakers.

The dashboard panels are new - not re-veneered - and are finished in deep Walnut. The dashboard instruments feature bright white faces, and Leven Technology control stalks operate the lights and wipers. Note also the door sills fitted with Leven kickplates. The roof is trimmed in black Mohair. It is in first class condition and equipped with a very well preserved Vybak window.

And when you open the bonnet, the satisfaction factor keeps on rolling. The engine bay is in very good condition, and reflects the car's regular technical attention (see the service records). Even the reflective heat shielding is in first class order. The car does benefit from power assisted steering, but is not fitted with air conditioning (very few Chimaeras were).

Y72 CGJ does have a very well protected chassis - with all wishbones and outriggers in very sound condition. The alloys are standard, finished in unmarked silver, and shod with Toyo Proxes tyres, with very legal life and tread remaining. And the car will be fully Optiline-aligned before it is handed over to its next owner.

This car was first registered on 1 May 2001. It has had only 2 owners during its short (;-) ) 19 years life and has covered 41,500 miles in that time - or less than 2,200 miles per year.

The second owner acquired the vehicle in 2019 and drove it under 500 miles before deciding to part exchange his Chimaera for a Tuscan Mk2 - in equally beautiful condition. The reason for the sale was simply his wish to experience the characteristics of a Speed Six engined TVR!

This Classic British Sportscar will come with the complete piece of mind afforded by Str8six's renowned "All the 12's" delivery specification - i.e. 12,000 mile service, 12 months TAX, 12 months MOT and 12 months/12,000 miles “no quibble” FULL WEAR and TEAR PARTS and LABOUR WARRANTY, plus a 12 volt battery trickle charger.

Overall mileage - 41,500. Advert Date: 2020-04-13
