About this Car

TVR Chimaera 5.0 1998 CAT C Project. L666TVR.
Sold as a running, driving project, this car has come to us due to the owners unfortunate passing and was last used in May 2022.
Key positives are the engine gearbox and drive train and solid central chassis.
The engine was rebuilt in July 2019 by Rob Robertson Race Engines at 27,000 miles and now shows 27,771 so barely run in. Gear box, clutch and diff all are working well with no clunks or whines.
All the electrics and dials work, although due to standing outside since April 2022 will benefit with all connections being cleaned up.
The inspection lists all the key faults with “*” highlighting essential to get the car through a fresh MOT.
Inspection key areas:
Radiator end of life – Recommend replace

The car has a later front end headlight conversion and the paint is fair from 6 feet with blisters.
The interior although aged, is without rips and tears to the seats. The front overlay carpets are missing.
