Produced by TVR between 1992 and 2003. It was first presented to the public at the Birmingham Motor Show. The car's name derives from the Chimera, an ancient creature from Greek mythology. Always an Italian car, it has three owners who have made a limited and touristic use of it. The second owner, following mechanical problems, replaced the 240hp original equipment engine with a 275hp "HC" (High Compression) type unit, consistent with the model. With this engine, the third owner (since 2006) has traveled more than 50000Km without any problems. Everything works perfectly. The wood veneer of the dashboard (which tended to flake off) was redone with an essence and wood grain similar to the original. No particular restoration; only regular maintenance performed before spring and summer use. The only important intervention: the reconditioning of the steering box. The car has never raced. It was the subject of a report in the magazine RUOTECLASSICHE in December 2006 as "instant classic".
