TVR Tuscan 4.0 MK1
Engine Rebuild at 29,000 miles- Smart Chassis - Fairly Recent Shocks - New Alarm
Colour: Silver with Black Leather
TVR Tuscan 4.0 MK1 – 2001 Y-Reg – 44,000 miles. – Full engine rebuild at Str8six at 29k.
Silver with black leather and carpets – Lovely Condition.
Lovely car, that’s due back with us for the THIRD time.
The chassis has only been waxoyled on the outriggers with a clear finish, It’s a very tidy chassis.
Drives really well and pulls like a train. Very smooth and has the cats fitted so noisy but civilised. Unlike so many this one also sits on the road well and looks all up and together.
A few chips on the nose and slight marks around the roof as is almost standard, but we’re being picky as the car looks sharp in silver and we’d say that it’s best left as is at this time. Paintwork to the nose can be done for an additional cost if required for the next owner. Best viewed.
Alloys have had a refurbishment from silver to anthracite and look perfect on the car.
The car has had the bonnet conversion upgrade carried out in 2014.
Plus a new Cobra 4138 remote alarm upgrade, and alloy rear window clips.
We sold the car at 35,000 miles in the summer of 2016 to the previous, previous owner, and at that time the car went into Powers Performance for a once over and check up. £800 was spent on various small jobs including throttle bodies set-up, lambda sensor, full geo and a few new items such a gear and handbrake gaiters. PPC in Melton had been looking after the car for the first gent we sold it to, he kept on top of it, including having a full 12k and valve clearance service in March 2017 at 36,757 miles.
Since then the car has come back to us in May 2018 and we sold it to Ben at 39,000 miles. He’s had Ian look after it at Track V Road over the last 2yrs, and the car now has 44,000 miles under its wheels.

Many MOT going right back to 2006.
Enjoy the photos and please feel free to email or call if you’d like some more info or would like to book an appointment to view the car.
The bodywork is in very good condition bar the odd small chip to the nose. More importantly the panel fit and condition is spot on and the car looks sharp and reflects the care and attention that the previous owners and Mat Smith Sports Cars have lavished upon this car.
The interior of the car also remains in super condition with the black leather looking very fresh and unworn, and carpets as you can see are not in anyway faded or uneven in colour.
The switchgear and aluminium trim on the console and dash is unmarked and the dash bright.
A very nice example indeed.
(Words and pics from 2016) The engine and chassis on this car are pristine. Clearly this car has always been treated very well over the last 17yrs. However we know that the previous, previous owner spent a great deal of time detailing the engine bay when the engine was out having a rebuild in late 2014 and made various improvements including additional heat shielding around the exhaust area.
The chassis looks almost new on the car.
