TVR Tuscan MK1 4.0
Colour: Grigio Titanio
Deposit Taken…and now SOLD for the second time. Enjoy Will 🙂
This car is one we sold in Feb 2019. It was exported to Guernsey last year by the new owner, who is a regular client of ours. We have since sold him an 8000 miles example of a 1999 Tuscan and this car is now available again. (The photos shown were taken in late Oct 2020.)
The car has covered less than 300 miles since we sold it to him. Now back with us in Leicestershire. Just had a service and prep at £2500, and we will now be undertaking a checkover and any further prep deemed required before retail sale…which has now been done and included a new AP Clutch. Paperwork changeover just in process, going back to UK V5 and is in hand. The new log book will be with us early November.
Below is the advert wording from 2019. Plus a video of it in late 2018 and Oct 2020. As you can see, nothing has changed. 🙂
This rather gorgeous late ’54 plate MK1 Tuscan 4.0. Finished in Grigio Titanio, with rare two-tone black & white seats and silver dash – 33,500 miles.
Once we’ve finished prepping it to our standards… the car will be a very sought after little beastie.
The car is in good condition and looks fantastic with the two-tone seats and interior.
Only 3 previous owners, and really it’s only 2 as the last chap did less than 250 miles and bought it in July 2018 from another TVR dealer.
Prior to that the previous owner had owned the car since April 2006 when the car had covered approximately 5000 miles.
