The car was designed by Peter Wheeler, John Ravenscroft.The Chimaera was based on the Griffith's running gear and chassis but was fitted with a softer suspension set up, with Bilstein dampers and a rear anti-roll bar. The car was originally provided with a 4-liter or 4.3-liter version of the Rover V8, axle fitted to the Griffith. There were about 6,000 produced in total.
