Offered for sale my incredible Chimaera 450 Turbo. Unbelievable quality of build, possibly the most powerful Rover V8 engined Chimaera in the world. Difficult to describe the level of detail which went into this build, in short it was completed by one of the previous owners who had sports bikes and wanted a car that would give him a similar thrill. This car was born from it.

A suitable car was chosen - a 4.5 litre (the chosen engine as less fragile than the 5 litre) in a classic colour combination of Starmist Blue over magnolia. In short, the specification is as follows:

Top hat linered block
Forged pistons
Teflon coated skirts
Fully gas flowed and ported heads
Lightened flywheel
Up-rated fuel pump
Megasquirt ECU
Twin oil coolers
Tremec TKO600 gearbox
Twin plate clutch
Up-rated driveshafts
AP Racing 12.9 inch front brakes
Hubs modified to accept larger brakes (Tuscan wheels)
Gaz Gold adjustable suspension
Ceramic coated and de-catted manifolds
Turbocharged up to 19psi
Tuscan headlamp conversion
Partial retrim
Much, much more...

Switchable boost activated through the steering wheel allows for adjustment of boost through 4 psi through to the full 19 psi in three stages. Truly astounding levels of performance. 573bhp and 610 lb/ft torque in a car just weighing 1000kg and with no traction control or ABS focuses the mind, truly eye opening.

Nearly two folders full of history. Featured in Sprint more than once, winner of numerous awards in the TVR community all supplied with the car. Even comes with a laptop with the full build stages loaded to it, you'll need to source a charger though!

Would consider a Cerbera V8 or T350 in part exchange, subject to details.

Thank you for reading.
