1998 TVR Chimaera 500

This outstanding TVR Chimaera 500 has only covered 26000 miles from new and has been driven 300 faultless miles from Dover to Yorkshire. The car was supplied new by Hawthorns in Farnham, Surrey and comes with an impressive service containing twelve service stamps. Supply dealer Hawthorns serviced the TVR at 975 and 3470 miles and Racetech TVR Limited maintained the car at 14338, 16218, 17042 and 18171. TVR agents Wilton-Morgan serviced at 19566, 20698 and 21017 before Neil Garner Performance serviced at 21755 and 22343. The most recent service was in February 2108 by Taylor TVR at 24918 miles. Accompanying the service history is some interesting previous ownership correspondence that tells us the second owner of the car bought it with 8000 miles at one year old used for several trips to Le Mans during his ownership of nine years.

The TVR comes with an impressive file of history detailing careful maintenance and invoices for many upgrades. Upgrades include installation, setting up and mapping a Canems Rover V8 engine management kit and the battery at this point was re-located in the boot. Racetech TVR who maintained the car for a few years supplied and fitted brand new Wilmot 4 pot calipers, discs, pads and uprated braided hoses fitted. They also supplied and fitted a brand new aluminium radiator, new silicon hoses and upgraded ignition leads.

TVR 258 has come to us in outstanding condition and earlier in the year had £2000 spent on servicing, maintenance and a new set of tyres. The car drives perfectly with outstanding performance as expected being such a low mileage, well maintained car. The car presents incredibly well with stunning Nautica Blue Pearl paintwork that is believed to be original. The interior is stunning with beautiful well-kept leather and the detail underneath the car is impressive having had various zinc powder coating to the suspension and painted outriggers and front wishbones. The chassis is superb having had regular maintenance, the hood excellent, the boot area is exceptionally smart, and the engine bay very well presented. This is a truly outstanding example that is ready to use and enjoy and comes with its TVR private registration mark, handbook and spare keys. Low mileage examples are becoming increasingly sought after and this really is a top class car that has been maintained to the highest of standards and has all of the recommended Chimaera upgrades.
