2,498cc. This very rare TVR 2500M has had just two owners from new. In 1985, when the car had covered 18,000 miles, it was taken off the road by its first owner due to electrical problems, and an accident, before being purchased by the vendor in 1989. It was then placed in storage until 1991 when a full restoration commenced over an eighteen month period including a colour change from white to bright red (a BMW colour). In 1992 at the TVR event in Blackpool it won concours first prize and has participated in five Norwich Union classic car runs. The interesting story of its purchase and restoration completion, was featured by Restoring Classic Cars magazine in April 1993.  The car has been off the road for several years and will require some recommissioning.   

It comes complete with the original green log book, copy magazine article, MoTs dating from 1992 to 2008, and original manual. The mileage is recorded at 24,292.
