2002 TVR TUSCAN Mk1 4.0 LITRE S – “DIAMOND INVESTMENT”
A beautiful Tuscan Mk 1 4.0 litre S Targa Convertible - first registered on 20 Sep 2002 - which has covered a mere 20,620 miles ! Finished in Reflex Charcoal, it has an interior trimmed primarily in Biscuit with Dark Green Featuring. So why is this car a Diamond Investment ??
Well, lets say that we believe a TVR Tuscan, especially a Mk1 - and particularly in “S” specification - is potentially an outstanding Investment. And this is all the more so when the car is finished in Reflex Charcoal – one of TVR’ s most successful and most sought after colourways. This is a colour that changes from near Black to an amazing Green when subjected to bright sunlight.
And finally, to close the circle, if carbon is subjected to enormous pressure , it transforms into diamond crystals . So LB52 ZKP should definitely be a Diamond Investment - although this particular car’s sure-footed ride and handling should keep you free from pressure !!
The condition of the car is as follows. The stunning exterior , equipped with the full “S” aerodynamic specification equipments - is, to all intents and purposes, unmarked. The interior is also in remarkably well preserved condition - with ½ hide trim in Biscuit and Medium Green complementing the exterior beautifully. This judgement is substantiated by the photos. These also show the car’s 18” Spider alloys which are finished in OE Silver and which are, of course, unmarked.
The car’s ICE system comprises its original Pioneer MOSFET DEH-P4400R Head Unit. This interfaces with the Pioneer CDX-P670 CD Player, installed in the car’s cavernous boot . The tail of the car is effectively all boot and, with practice and care, the Targa Roof panel and rear window can be installed there in less than 2 minutes – with room beneath for 2 sets of golfclubs or space for soft bags containing all the necessaries for 2 people enjoying a 2 week Continental road trip. (So, “All the 2s”!). Lets hope those days return again in 2021 ! That would be cool as this car is also equipped with Factory-installed Air Conditioning.
LB52 ZKP offers other advantages too. The car has had 5 owners since its first registration in Sept 2002, and has been maintained by TVR dealerships (with one exception) ever since. And the engine ? In Oct 2008 Elmwood Vehicles (TVR Fix) removed the engine and sent it to a specialist to be stripped and to have the head rebuilt with new camshafts . This was at 15,493 mls.
Six years later, in June 2014, the car was purchased by its most recent owner with 18,397 miles on the sales invoice. The car has covered less than 2,200 miles in the 5 and a bit years since that date. It has been professionally stored throughout that period , while the English owner has lived in Singapore and Indonesia, returning home for an annual holiday during which time he has also enjoyed his Tuscan.
So, why did the owner decide to sell his Pride and Joy to Str8six? What he did in fact was to part exchange it for a Speed Six-engined TVR Cerbera, which Str8six was offering fully restored and with just over 9,000 miles on the clock. This should underline the standard of car the last owner likes to keepavailable - in professional storage near Heathrow - for his occasional use in summer weather only. .
LB52 ZKP will, of course, be supplied with Str8six's renowned "All the 12's" handover specification. The car will have a full, 12,000 miles (with valve clearance) service, 12 months road fund licence, 12 months MOT and 12 months/12,000 miles Full Wear and Tear warranty (covering parts and labour). A 12 volt (hard-wired) Accumate trickle charger will have been installed and an Anderson Jump Lead will be placed in the boot.
Photocopies of the Service Records and the Car’s Provenance information are available to view at Str8six. The original documents s are currently inbound from the Far East.
At just £38,000, and given its low mileage and splendid condition, this beautiful Tuscan represents real value for money.
(Please Note: The photographs were taken in October 2020. We have included one from our library portfolio which shows what the colour Reflex Charcoal does when Spring has Sprung !!).
