2002 TVR TUSCAN Mk 1 4.0 S TARGA -“MOONRAKER”

Well, if Roger Moore drove a Volvo P1800 when he starred in The Saint. then this is the TVR he should have driven when he played James Bond in the film Moonraker. And very apt it would have been …. Check the Colourways !
The car’s exterior is as “Suave as Bond in a Black DJ” – specifically TVR “Moonraker” Black ! And the interior is pure, unalleviated Red. That colour is not unusual in a Bond Movie!!
The Black and Scarlet combination is pretty eye-catching. It was even chosen for the Eagle Jaguar E-Type Speedster displayed at this year’s Salon Prive at Blenheim Palace!! That car’s price ? Rumoured to be £650,000 !! So this 390 BHP Tuscan – capable of 0-60 mph in 3.8 secs, 0-100 mph in 8.1 secs - at a mere £38,000 - is a Gift !!
DR02 TVR was registered to its first owner in July 2002 by the TVR Centre Barnet. It has had 5 more owners since and was cherished by its last owner for the last 2 years – from Sept 2019 to Sept 2021. During that time he added just under 5,000 miles before selling it to Str8six with 48,865 miles on the clock.
So why did the last owner part with this superb, striking Tuscan Mk 1 4.0 S? Well…..the TVR had encouraged him to change to a McLaren! Continuing with the Film theme …… “He’ll Be Back”!
Maybe his decision will be your good fortune! DR02 TVR is the second Black Tuscan Mk 1 4.0S we have offered for sale this Autumn. The first one was emblazoned with a Central stripe - and went to the second client who viewed it!
And this Tuscan’s specification includes Air Conditioning, Gas Discharge Headlights, Nitron Dampers and Fully Refurbished Dark Shadow Chrome Alloys.
Furthermore, this Tuscan underwent the expected engine rebuild - by TVR Engineering - in Jan 2004. Subsequently it has been maintained by TVR main Dealers all its life. The engine was removed and re-installed by Track v Road in April 2011 at 36,854 mls - for the fitment of new valve guides and half time bearings.
The entire car was subjected to a comprehensive check by Str8six in May 2021 at 46234 mls. So we have no reservations in supplying this car to its next owner with Str8six’s “All the 12s” package, which includes a full 12K Service , 12 months MOT and 12 Months Tax. It will be provided with our 12 Months/12,000 mls Full Wear and Tear, Parts and Labour, No Quibble Warranty. It will be equipped with a 12v Trickle charger and an Anderson Jump Start Cable. It will also come with a Car Cover..
