1997 P TVR Chimaera 400 (Part facelift). – Videos and Hi-Res images below.

34,800 miles from new last owner since Jan 2005. In that time the car has covered just 8000 miles.

Just fully serviced and prepped by Shmoo Automotive.

A rundown of the main things we’ve just done:

  • FULL 12k Service (Inc New Serp belt, Air Filter, Fuel Filter, Diff oil, Gearbox oil, Coolant, Plugs).
  • New engine mounts
  • Adjust doors
  • Bleed Clutch and Brakes
  • All new fuel hoses
  • Rear upper arm bushes
  • New CV Boots
  • Fit missing thrust washers
  • New rear brake pads
  • New clutch slave
  • New washer pipes
  • Rectify faulty mirrors
  • Trace battery drain and rectify
  • Check and touch up chassis
  • 4 x Uniroyal Rainsports (Some excellent comments about these on the owners forums).
  • Full machine mop and interior valet


The car is in very nice condition and the original chassis is excellent due to the car being well protected and mainly kept in a dry garage over the last 14yrs.

A few blemishes as to be expected on a 23yr old TVR, but the car does look smart.

Finished in Viper Blue with Magnolia, and mid-blue carpets.   Viper blue is a rare colour and we’ve never had a Chimaera in this shade of blue before.

Drives really well and a standard car, so exhaust is a burble rather than a roar.

Priced and prepped well with a very good chassis, this car would be an ideal Chimaera for someone looking to get into TVR ownership, but with a later face-lifted car, and all the benefits that offers.

This one is as God intended, with a non-PAS rack, yes it’s a little heavier until the wheels are rolling, but the feedback from the rack is better on the move, and it’s one less thing to worry about cost wise in the future.
