2001 TVR Tuscan


  • Unique green exterior with cream leather/green leather trim interior
  • Bonnet conversion completed by TrackvRoad
  • Comprehensive paperwork and history from previous registered keepers

The Appeal

The late 90s saw TVR riding on quite the high, and it's clear that the company were on a winning streak. What nobody quite expected was a watershed moment just before the new Millenia. Every TVR was no-excuses, but the Tuscan just seemed to take it all up a notch. 

Distinctively styled, with a drill-hole grille and a sonorous I6, the Tuscan was unapologetic in its eccentricity, and incredibly dynamic. The idea was to bring something that little bit more exciting to a market dominated by BMW and Porsche - and it couldn't be denied that they'd succeeded. 

This particular model, with its unique 'Crystal Verdi' paintwork, and duotone interior, is a standout example of the marque. The car has been meticulously maintained, and carries a reportedly accurate 25,252 miles on the clock. The bonnet conversion completed by TrackvRoad adds an extra touch of uniqueness to this already special vehicle.

History and Paperwork

  • The log book lists 4 registered keepers, but the 4th keeper was the current owner's husband. The car was transferred to the current owner's name but the address remained the same
  • Valid MOT until September 2024
  • Car indicates 25,252 miles on the clock

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.


We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
