1997 TVR Chimaera 4.0l HC 'Halycon Midas Pearl' For Sale

For sale my 1997 TVR Chimaera 4.0l HC in Halcyon Midas Pearl

For sale my beautiful TVR Chimaera in ‘Halycon Midas Pearl,’ this is a rare pearlescent flip paint which looks amazing in the sun and photos don't do it justice. The condition is excellent with only a small amount of age related marks. Never recorded as accident damaged or written off. It has been owned and meticulously cared for by me for the last 2 years, I have owned multiple TVR’s and a TVR club member. It comes with a comprehensive 2-inch-thick folder of paperwork full of receipts, service history, MOT’s and paperwork for everything done to the car; see the photo which only shows 50% of the paperwork!

This is a great example for somebody wanting to get into TVR ownership that doesn’t require any work, all the known issues have already been resolved or upgraded. A house move on the way means I’ve decided to spare some money and sell my toy and buy something cheaper. The general spec is as follows:

4.0lHC V8 275bhp/305lbft
5 Speed Manual T5
MOT until 9th May 2020
Last serviced 73,500 miles/May 19’
Comprehensive A4 folder of paperwork and history
V5 Present
Electric windows
Electric heated mirrors
Power steering
HPI Clear
2 Keys/FOB's
Blue leather interior
4 excellent tyres Pirelli/Toyo 5mm of tread all round

Preventative and general maintenance and upgrades:

Excellent chassis, outriggers were replaced at 55,000 miles and is thoroughly under-sealed
Clutch replaced at 48,000 miles, feels like new
Engine stripped and rotational parts replaced where necessary, new gaskets and oil pump at 60,000 miles

Multiple tasteful modifications have been added as follows:

Silverstone Performance SP12 Wheels 7J x 17” + 8J x 18”
Cat 1 Carl baker alarm and boot release upgrade
‘Tornado Systems’ ECU Performance chip
Gaz gold coilovers

The Speedo was replaced at 60,000mi for an odometer now reading 56,000mi. The actual mileage is 73,500, in the past, unfortunately somebody has incorrectly recorded it on the MOT.

This is a very clean, excellent condition example that’s ready to be enjoyed. I have put a lot of time and effort into making this a clean and reliable example to be driven. I have a full walk around video of this car I am happy to send to any interested buyers along with more images, although viewing is essential as the condition and paperwork sells this car itself. I have reduced the price to sell and I feel it is excellent value, I may be open to very close offers. Serious inquires please call or message me, the car is located in Rugby, West Mids although I am happy to meet potential buyers within a reasonable distance. Thanks, Lewis
