Introduced at the 1992 Motor Show, the Chimaera was intended to be a more practical, user-friendly machine than the formidable Griffith. To this end, it sported a proper boot and more cosseting interior. Power came from a variety of Rover V8-derived units. Though, even the entry level 4.0 litre was quoted as developing 240bhp/270lbft. Slowest of the range, it was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, 0-100mph in 12.1 seconds and 152mph! Luckily all Chimaeras came with four-wheel disc brakes and a Quaife differential as standard.
Finished in Dark Green with Cream leather upholstery and Green interior accents, ‘P829 VWX’ has covered some 51,000 miles from new in the hands of five keepers. Acquired by its previous owner in 2002 and passing to the seller during 2015, the TVR was treated to a new starter motor, ignition switch and upgraded Thatcham alarm in 2019 and a fresh battery last year. Describing the 4.0 litre V8 engine, five-speed manual gearbox, electrical equipment, paintwork and interior trim as ‘very good’, the vendor rates the bodywork as ‘excellent’. A great way to make the most of a staycation, this tempting TVR is offered for sale with a history file containing various old MOTs and invoices, two sets of keys and a current MOT certificate valid until July 2021.
