After the advent of the TVR's more wedge‑shaped, expensive and powerful cars of the 1980s, based on the Tasmin design, the S series later on in the decade was pitched as an entry level option. There was a return to the curves of the earlier cars, along with Ford V6 'Cologne' engines. The S2, as here, was introduced in 1988 with a 2922cc V6 as also found in contemporary Sierras, Granadas and Scorpios.

The vendor purchased this car in September 2013, and had various work carried out over the years including a glassfibre respray in 2018. All panels were also realigned and there were new outriggers and a new exhaust as well. In addition, the alloy wheels were refurbished, at a cost of £270. The vendor reports that the car has been serviced annually and waterless antifreeze is now in use to improve cooling. A new battery was fitted in September of this year.

The odometer indicates a mileage of circa 65,554, which is backed up by all the documentation. A check on the online MoT history reveals that since its 2006 MoT, just over 2000 miles have been covered. A fresh MoT has just been put on the car, which is valid until October 2022.

The history folder includes the V5C and owner's document wallet with owner's handbook and service record (albeit only stamped up to 23,419 miles in 1991). There are assorted tax discs, various MoTs from 1997 onwards, and a huge amount of bills and invoices from the 1990s onwards, testifying to a lot of care, attention and expenditure over the years. A spare set of keys also comes with the car, as does a Haynes Ford Sierra workshop manual (for engine information) and a more specific manual on the S series range in general (the pages of which have unfortunately detached from their ring‑binder, but seems complete).
