Description
FOR SALE: A stunning facelift example in Antigua Blue Pearl, with power steering and just 32k miles from new.VIEWINGS WELCOME BY APPOINTMENT ONLY /// ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUESTEQUIPMENTAntigua Blue Pearlescent paintwork, Magnolia hide upholstery, Blue folding soft-top with removable carbon fibre centre panel, Power steering, TVR/Personal leather-trimmed steering wheel, Walnut fascia trim, Electric windows, Electrically adjustable door mirrors, Dash clock, Oil pressure gauge, Pioneer cassette player, Pioneer speakers, CD changer, Cigar lighter, Ash trays, Tailored Chimaera floor mats, Chimaera door sill covers, Spare key, Original order form and bill of sale, Original sales brochure.EXTERIORThe Chimaera's sculpted Antigua Blue exterior looks marvelous in our studio, the lustful pearl finish pleasingly free from any swirl marks or unsightly scratches. On closer inspection the paintwork retains a deep and uniform shine all round with only an expected dusting of light frontal stone chips to report, further evidencing the car's honesty. The lights are all perfectly clear and free from signs of moisture ingress, and the folding blue soft-top also remains in great order. Being a facelift model this example boasts the later Cerbera-style front grille, updated rear lights, wing mirror door buttons, etc.INTERIORThe seats are upholstered in soft Magnolia hide. The supple leather presents in excellent condition with no major wear to report, even to the driver's bolster. The Magnolia finish extends to the centre console, lower dash and carpets, while the upper dash, gearshift gaiter, and tops of the doors are trimmed in contrasting blue. The glossy walnut fascia is a thoroughly British touch and really adds to the sense of occasion, especially with the aluminium-bezeled dials and original Pioneer cassette player.ENGINE AND TRANSMISSIONThe 4-litre V8 sounds great through the car's twin pipes. Barely run-in with a mere 32k miles on the clock, the engine idles up to temperature without fuss and performs really well on test. Despite its modest 235hp output the Chimaera can shift from 0-60mph in just 4.8 seconds, and on to 152mph! The 5-speed gearbox remains feeling tight and precise.The accompanying paperwork shows the TVR to have been well maintained throughout its life, with nine stamps present in the original service booklet. The car saw regular use up until mid-2007 when it was taken off the road and placed into storage by the first owner, thus preserving its amazing original condition and low mileage of just 32k. The car now benefits from a recent service and MOT and will receive a full mechanical inspection prior to sale for the new keeper's peace of mind.WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKESThe staggered five-spoke alloys are well suited to the Chimaera's pint-size proportions, all presenting in great condition with only two small curb marks to report. The wheels are shod in matching Toyo tyres at the front, with quality Bridgestone Potenzas at the rear.HISTORY FILEThis facelift Chimaera 400 was first registered in April 1999; it was supplied new by Kerridges TVR in Ipswich. The original TVR order form and Kerridges sales invoice show the car's build spec to include cost options such as pearlescent paint, power steering, and a CD changer. The History File is complete with a raft of maintenance invoices, Chimaera sales brochure, spare key, owner's manual, and service booklet with nine stamps. Following on from a lengthy period in storage the car recently benefits from a fresh service and MOT with no advisories. A full mechanical inspection by our trusted classic car specialists will be carried out prior to sale.Please visit our website for a full write up and additional photographs.***Tel - ***Worldwide shipping is available on request.VIEWING STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENTFor updates of new stock please join us on Facebook and Instagram.SIMILAR REQUIRED /// Please get in cont
