Only 69,240 miles with an impressive service history from new; only
300 miles since last major service; driven 90 miles to the
Supplied new by TVR agents Fernhurst Motor Co of Haslemere in May 1996, this Chimaera 400 has the 240bhp 4.0 V8 engine mated to 5-speed manual transmission which gave it stonking performance when new – 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 152mph if you were brave enough!
It has covered 69,240 miles to date with lots of service history and plenty of old MOTs to warrant this figure. A good file of invoices show regular upkeep from new, the bills showing that it has been serviced at least 18 times to date with various new parts fitted over the years. The front end was repainted by Fernhurst in 2001 and a Metasystem alarm/immobiliser was fitted in 2008.
Our vendor acquired the car in March 2022 at which point it had been in storage for the previous nine years. He promptly sent it to Powers Performance of Coventry for a major service and check-over which cost £1,674 and it has only covered around 300 miles since. It also had another minor service in March this year.
As you can see in the photos, it looks very presentable for its year/mileage with just a few cosmetic blemishes here and there. The paint on the boot is not as shiny as the rest of the car and the wiring in the passenger footwell where the battery sits is also exposed and untidy.
Driven some 90 miles to the sale, it has an MOT until February 2024 with no advisories recorded and has been starting promptly and running well as we have moved it around on site.
