So, the car:
1999 TVR Chimaera 500, fitted with power steering. T5 gearbox.
Full body off, chassis restoration completed by RT Racing approximately 3000 miles ago, fully documented with images. New bushes and hoses throughout.
Full service history.
Cherry Red Pearl paintwork, with full Butterscotch hide.
Fitted with gold wool carpets piped in Butterscotch leather.
Black hood, cream dials and wooden dash.
Upgraded Kenwood CD player with Pioneer speakers.
Completely standard in almost every way, as TVR intended.
Wheels have been stripped and re-powdercoated and are unmarked.
New windscreen fitted in 2016, with rear screen replaced in 2008 which is clear and damage free.
Recent service just carried out, full service history to accompany it.
Sadly, the time has come to move on. This car has had not one advisory on the MOT in the last 10 years and is HPI clear. As everyone knows, the 500 is the one to have – the premier model in the Chimaera range, and also the rarest, with only around 500 of the 4000 or so Chimaeras produced having been fitted with the 5 litre engine. Chimaera values have been steadily on the up for the last 5 years, and the top of the range and rarest variants of any model are always those that are to appreciate the most. The paintwork has a few stonechips as you’d expect from a near 20 year old car, but largely is in excellent condition.
Please call or text Tom on 07887 512064. The car is located in Bishop’s Stortford, junction 8 of the M11, 10 mins from Stansted Airport or 40 mins on the train from Liverpool Street.
