TVR Chimaera 450


Of the three engine options offered for the Chimaera, it was the '450' which was regarded by the motoring press and wider customer base alike as providing the smoothest and most refined balance of both raw power with ease of driveability.

Julien's Perspective

Some thoughts on this model

As the last edition of engine options offered in the Chimaera, 450 was introduced as a replacement to the 4.0Ltr HC which, due to its high compression, made the engine less tolerant at low revs or whilst idling in traffic. The 450 went on to become the best-selling variant of TVRs most popular model eclipsing sales of both 4 and 5 litre cars at the time of introduction.

This low owner Chimaera 450 represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase an original, well cared for and non-modified version of TVRs most famous and popular sports car. Having sold hundreds of TVRs over a twenty-five-year period, I can personally attest to the fact that original Chimaeras such as this are as rare as 'hen teeth' nowadys.

The appealing colour combination of BMW Avus blue together fawn leather interior, power steering and 5 litre style Estoril alloy wheels, ensure that this car is difficult to replicate but also ahead of the curve, in condition, mileage (53,000 miles) and low ownership.

Regular and thorough maintenance has been completed by recognised TVR specialist throughout the its' life and the car despite not having been repainted, has very few marks save a few usual stone chips evident to the nose cone.
