You should buy this car. Seriously.

For sale my lovely TVR Chimaera which I’ve a lot of fun in since 2016. The car is Starmist Blue with a Biscuit coloured half-hide interior.
As you can see below she has an excellent service history and is always kept indoors either in my garage or, last winter, at the Universal Classic Cars storage facility in Fleet, Hampshire which is where these rather arty photos were taken after they’d applied a bit of spit ‘n’ polish (I assure you the car won’t be anything like this clean when you come to see it).

You’ll also see from the service history that my mileage per year in the car has declined considerably in recent years, partly due to work, partly due to my having another fun car to drive and partly due to this stupid effing pandemic.
She’s in good condition for her age but certainly not perfect and has the usual collection of stone chips you’d expect in a car that’s been “enthusiastically” driven. I have spared no expense in servicing, always accepting any recommendation made by the workshop. Note that the outriggers have not been replaced, as this has not (yet) been considered necessary.
I’m selling as I simply don’t drive her enough, I quite fancy a Lotus and my “V8” requirement is currently being fulfilled by a Mustang (my sensible daily driver).
This is fun loud car at a sensible price, you should buy it. Seriously.
