EXTERIOR
This Chimaera 500 is finished off in a traditional British Cooper green with a rebellious metal flake running through it giving a shimmering metallic finish. The paintwork is in excellent order which is no surprise considering the obvious care this car has been given throughout its life.

The long sweeping bonnet which houses functional vents to ensure the V8 is kept cool is in excellent order. As with the front end, both flanks are free from stone chips and dents. At the rear the prominent twin exhausts exit from underneath and either side of the car leaving no mistaking that this is anything other than a V8 burbling TVR.

The car wears its black mohair soft top well which is free from creases and marks with just slight signs of use on the lower edges. Along with this the rear screen is clear and free of cracks.

INTERIOR
Stepping inside the TVR you are greeted by the Leven stainless steel kickplates and immediately struck by the Walnut dash and Aluminum switches which tops of the distinctive Magnolia leather and green carpet delightfully.

Sitting down into the car you feel cocooned by a combination of the low sports seats and a high transmission tunnel typical of the manufacture. Looking ahead all the dials are clear to see and everything falls to hand wonderfully, from the aluminium topped gear lever to the leather covered Momo wheel. All the leather and stitching is in excellent order with the only the slightest of wear on the driver’s bolster.

The Pioneer head/cd changer unit is complemented by speaker’s front and back.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This is the top engine in the Chimaera range and there is no mistaking the Rover V8 gurgle when you fire it up. The engine dominates proceedings with a torque rich delivery making fast progress effortless. With its last service just over 3000 miles ago in July 18, carried out by specialist The Garage TVR, the engine starts up on the button and settles into a steady idle.

The gearbox delivers a short precise shift action with all gears engaging smoothly.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The distinctive 7 spoke 16” alloys are finished in a brilliant silver complete will all TVR centre caps.

Tyres are matching Toyo’s all round with good tread depth. The brakes pull the car to a stop sharply with the discs show no signs of pitting or scoring and there is a decent amount of material left on the pad.
