Lot 46 (Imperial War Museum Duxford, 18th March 2020)
Registration No: X511USX
Chassis No: SDLEA16A8YB001309
Resplendent in TVR Spectra-Flair Metallic paint with two tone light grey leather complemented by black alcantara inserts, this Tuscan S has had just one former keeper. Complete with targa roof panel, remote locking and immobiliser, it features a TVR Power Ltd upgraded engine displacing 4.5-litres at a cost of £10,799. Bills for this along with comprehensive invoices of all services accompany the car together with old MoTs. The gearbox has also been overhauled, as has the rear differential, and a replacement clutch fitted. It is now described as having “excellent” engine, electrics and transmission with “very good” body, paintwork and interior.
The Tuscan was equipped with all-round independent double-wishbone coil-over suspension, power assisted rack and pinion steering and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. Clothed with extravagantly styled fibreglass body panels (including a detachable roof), the notably rigid multi-tubular chassis frame played host to a five-speed manual gearbox and limited slip differential. A riot of imaginative instrumentation and novel switchgear, the interior maintained TVR's reputation for lateral thinking. Minor aerodynamic aids added to the S model included an undertray in the front and a small boot-lid spoiler on the rear.
