This stunning example came to us via Holland in the early part of the summer 2012. The car was exported there in 2011, but we brought it back home to good old Blighty, and then sold it to a newbie to TVR’s.
In fact…he’s loved owning it and the whole TVR vibe so much so that he so traded it back in during May 2019 for our rather lovely 4.5 Series 2 Grigio Cerbera.
The car sold almost immediately to our next client Jonathan later that month. He’s had some great days out in the sun with it since then, but with Covid-19 changing many peoples view on the old work/life balance, he’s selling this and his rather swanky VW Transporter Camper… and investing the money into one of those giant motorhomes. So….it’s back with us again for a third time.
It’s a lovely car, and we’re very pleased that it’s back as it’s an easy car to sell due to the lovely condition.
Paperwork and History.
The car has a large history file, with many invoices going back to day one. The 5.0 unit was the subject of an engine rebuild at TVR Power 12,000 miles ago back in 2009.
The engine, chassis, paintwork, and interior are as you’d expect of such a low mileage example. It presents very, very well and gleams in the sunlight.
Back in the summer 2018 we did our usual Shmoo Automotive high standard mechanical prep, replacing bushes, fuel hoses, sorting oil leaks, including the rear main crank seal….and a full and proper 12k service.
It then had another low mileage service and checkover in May 2020.
Steve at SD Autotec saw the car recently and gave it a very good report, should you want to talk to someone other than me. 🙂
The car had new Bilstein shocks fitted while it was in Holland, they are still in excellent condition.
Brand new Toyos were fitted x 4 in May last year and have done around 500 miles since.
Comes with the Cherished reg plate – T50 VRR.
