This car has just undergone extensive re-commissioning having sat for some time after its previous owner passed away.
I knew this car well, before the last owner as it belonged to a friend when all the SC Power supercharger upgrades were done to it, which is why we took on the responsibility of bringing this car back to rude health.
Car has just had a short engine built by John Eales...it was rebuilt with new larger pistons, new bearings etc. The block was re-bored for the larger pistons and was also cross bolted by John. He has also neutrally balanced the crankshaft and all moving parts of the assembly as well. The short engine was refitted by Big Col at TVRSSW with new camshaft, followers etc and a new clutch assembly along with new clutch slave cylinder.
So you are getting a brand new John Eales 5.1ltr engine which is now in excellent health and has also been given the Mark Adams treatment on Mech Repairs rolling road for you :).
Since taking on the project we have cleaned and painted the chassis where there were signs of surface rust or flaking powder coat. The front suspension was all in pretty much new condition, but we replaced both upper and lower ball joints.
The interior has been completely stripped and new carpets fitted, new dashboards fitted and all the leather has been restored to a professional level.
Roof rear section has been overhauled and new screen fitted.
The front end had been scuffed by someone reversing into it, so after we replaced the bonnet vents we had the whole front end re-sprayed, and the BMW Avus Blau colour match looks stunning!
Fresh 5.1 ltr crossbolted J.E. short engine with all new components. The engine will have done no more than 250miles when you get it so it will need the remainder of its 1000 mile running in completed and then the oil changed to a fully synthetic oil (we would recommend a 10/60 such as Mobil Extended Life for this car).
Rollcentre Roll bar with two 4 point Willans Harnesses along with new inertia seat belts both sides.
HiSpec 4pot callipers up front with braided hoses all round & larger grooved discs.
SC Power's SC 500 Supercharger kit with intercooler and bespoke induction system.
Redtec Ali radiator and silicon hoses.
GAZ adjustable shocks with spring weight spec'd for the cars power.
Expensive to replace Estoril wheels (no kerbing) and R888's with nearly new tread depth.
SC Power aero - front splitter, front winglets and rear diffuser along with bespoke bonnet venting.
DAB Radio with hidden FM/DAB antenna under boot lid with crystal clear reception.
Big folder of Receipts and old MOT's along with original log book and service records.
Oh did i mentioned this is a 5.1ltr Supercharged Monster with over 400 horsepower?!? it's not for the faint hearted, even tho it cruises as smoothly as a luxury car (read "NO SHUNTING AT ALL" :) ) and is very driveable despite the power...So Chloe tells me, as she has been running the engine in for you, which is sounding silky smooth :).
Ps Reek will appear in a forthcoming Sprint magazine article...so it's going to be famous ;) and it used to be quite successful in the TVR Sprint serious a few years back :)
This is a LOT of car, which has had simply Thousands spent on it, over £1k on the aero, S/S install in the region of £7.5k, the J.E. engine and R/R totalling more than £6k and that's before we get to the body, chassis and interior overhaul.
With the above in mind, we have pitched the price above the average, but well below the cost to create this beast and think that £29,500 ono is a fair price for what is practically a new and unique car...We are however open to sensibly offers as i'm bored and want to start a new project :)
