1993 TVR Chimaera 4.0l V8

TVR is a British motor manufacturer founded by Trevor (TVR) Wilkinson in 1946. TVR’s core philosophy was lightweight sportscars with powerful engines and they earned themselves the reputation of Rebellious British underdogs.

The most successful period for TVR was under the ownership of Peter Wheeler. He was focussed on producing fun V8 Sportscars with the Griffith, Chimaera, Cerbera, T350, Typhon and Sagaris launched during his time. During this period, they were the third largest Specialist Sports car manufacturer and offered a diverse range between coupe’s and convertibles.

The TVR Chimaera is a 2- seater roadster which was bult on their core beliefs and came in at a lightweight of 1060kg and was fitted with a massive 4.0L Rover V8 motor boasting 240 bhp. This allowed the Chimaera to do an impressive 0-100km/h time of 5.1 seconds with a top speed of in excess of 240km/h. Not for the faint hearted though as the TVR did not have the luxuries and aids of ABS braking and stability control.

The Chimaera has the same chassis as its sister car the Griffith but is longer, more spacious and had a slightly softer suspension which allowed for the car to touring capabilities whilst retaining the sporting persona of the TVR name.

The TVR Chimaera was produced between 1991 and 2002 with engine variants starting from the 4.0L V8 and ending its life with the 5.0L V8 making it the most successful TVR produced with total production numbers reaching 5256.

Standard equipment on the Chimaera were alloys wheels, Electric windows, Removable radio cassette, limited slip differentials, leather seats facings, burr walnut facia, leather rimmed steering wheel, Mohair hood, Stainless steel exhaust system, Central door locking and adjustable steering.
