The potent TVR Chimaera (its name was derived from a monster found in Greek mythology) was built by the Blackpool sports car manufacturer between 1992 and 2003. It shared a lot of its chassis and running gear with the Griffith, as well as its Rover V8 engines, but was pitched as the long distance tourer of the range, so was longer, more spacious inside, and had somewhat softer suspension.

This 3952cc V8‑engined example was registered in April 1997 and, since then, has covered an indicated 79,999 miles. Finished in green with grey leather interior, it's in very presentable order, although  some stonechipping to the nose is apparent, and there are some areas on the bonnet and front wings where the paint is wearing a little thin. Some light scratches are also apparent across the body.
