The time has come to make space in the garage for my new project so the Chim must go. It’s been a great car and I’m sure the next owner will enjoy as much as I have.
1996 Starmist Green 4.0L
Just over 58k miles
Modwise Two Stage cooling kit added May 2011.
Fitted with Nitrons and Eibachs in March 2014; definitely money well spent.
ECU Upgrade March 2015
New fuel pump July 2016
Magnolia & Fern interior, believed to be full leather.
Walnut dash in lovely condition and Leven kit.
Has face off CD, I turned it on once to make sure it worked but have never used it.
Bespoke passenger footrest. Ensures modest height passengers do not disappear under the dash during heavy braking….. 😊
Mint condition Surrey Roof included
Another set of standard wheels in pretty good condition included (I originally thought about using these to try a different wheel colour but then decided to stick with original). The car has never been tracked during my ownership however these wheels would allow the next owner to use for track-day, whatever.
Bought from Tony Gilbert in 2011. During my ownership, it’s been yearly serviced and maintained/upgraded as necessary by Powers Performance (can’t recommend Dom and gang too highly).
Serviced March 2017.
MOT till 20 March 2018 with no advisories

My first TVR!
A stunning TVR Chimaera 400 in Porsche Iris Blue. The car had done around 57,000 miles when I bought it and was in excellent condition. The bodywork is near perfect, outriggers have been replaced and the engine runs well.

Well just coming up on 3 years of ownership & I'm still well chuffed. Running costs? Well, if you discount Fuel,tax & ins it's Nil, Nowt,not a thing!
