Watched them restore one of these on Wheeler Dealers. Definitely a car to lust after. :thumbsup:

Great choice, an exhilarating car with an epic soundtrack and a large boot! What else would anyone want.

The bad reputation didn’t put you off ?

I’d love a Cerbera but that Wheeler Dealer episode put a nail in that.

If it’s been serviced regularly by a TVR specialist and well looked after by previous owners he won’t have any reliability problems. Their bad reputation is undeserved.

Selling my Chimaera 500 was a big regret. Wonderful car (despite being as reliable as the Tories)

My mate had a Chim, he did more mileage back and forth to the dealer than he did social miles.

Low mileage ones are low for a reason, buy a high miler 😉
