1996 TVR Chimaera 500 - PAS - Cam & Outriggers done! For Sale

1996 Chimaera 500 PAS, 81k, (but currently using as my daily). 12 month's MOT (December 2022), new outriggers & 4 wheel geometry in December 2022 by Mat Smith, full 6k service completed December 2022 by Mat Smith.
Tahiti Blue, Back lit plate, button mirrors, 15 & 16 Estorils with new Pirelli P Zeros all round (500m old - £980 fitted!), washer kit, new battery, new wipers, new manifold gaskets. Mechanically excellent, it used to be Mat Smith's personal car (TVR specialist) and I bought it with long term cosmetic plans which have now had to be put on long term hold.
The drive is amazing - it is frighteningly fast with pinpoint PAS steering and does not shunt in the slightest. It has recently had a new cam, chain and Royal Purple Gearbox fluid by Mat Smith, as well as his general tinkering and servicing to get it all running spot on. Good service history. Recent clutch.
Has a lot of laquer peel, I think it needs a respray, has a patch of crazing on rear wing, will also ideally require new rear screen (small tear). Seat leather needs recolouring / reconditioning. O/ S Wing mirror damaged but will come with 2 replacement mirrors in a different colour, if list price achieved (very rare, worth £350+), as I was going to respray her. Will come with new Peter Essling outrigger protectors (not fitted, worth £140) if list price is achieved.
Car will be available to view from Jan 1st 2023.
