Under the hood lies a legendary 5.0-litre V8 engine, delivering exhilarating performance to the rear wheels through a precise 5-speed manual transmission. But the extensive list of improvements and upgrades truly sets this Chimaera apart, ensuring an unmatched driving experience.

Starting from the ground up, this Chimaera has undergone a complete body-off chassis restoration by Southways TVR specialists, including a galvanized chassis for longevity and durability. New polybushes, brake, and fuel lines provide enhanced stability and control, while the new 20" Estoril wheels wrapped in Yokohama AD08 tyres offer exceptional grip and handling.

The addition of a new DAB radio ensures entertainment on every journey, while the relocated fuse board and Odyssey battery provide improved accessibility and comfort for passengers.

But it's under the bonnet where this Chimaera truly shines. Many new engine parts, including adjustable pushrods, a new cam, an oil pump, and more, ensure optimal performance and reliability without sacrificing the original character of this iconic powerplant. With regular oil changes and meticulous maintenance, this Chimaera is ready to conquer the open road for years to come.

Enhanced braking performance, improved suspension, and upgraded cooling ensure confidence-inspiring handling and reliability, whether you're cruising through city streets or carving up mountain roads. With its full respray and subtle colour change to a deep blue-black hue, this Chimaera stands out in any setting.

Accompanied by two sets of keys, the original owner manual, and the revered Steve Heath Bible, this 2000 TVR Chimaera 500 Series is not just a car—it's a piece of automotive history, meticulously restored and upgraded for the discerning enthusiast. Experience the thrill of open-top motoring like never before with this exceptional TVR Chimaera.
