TVR Chimaera

Mac uses his car for shows and road trips – no track­days: ‘I wanted to build the ul­ti­mate Chimaera,’ he says. ‘ The first step was to fit an in­duc­tion kit and be­spoke ECU. The en­gine was blueprinted and a Gar­rett T4 turbo with a three­stage boost fa­cil­ity gives up to 573bhp and 610lb ft of torque. It has a Tre­mec TKO600 Corvette gear­box and a McLeod RST twin­plate clutch, ad­justable dampers and a big brake kit. A re­trim has re­ally lifted the in­te­rior, too. It weighs 1140kg with half a tank of fuel and me in­side. That equates to 502bhp per ton. It’ll break trac­tion in the dry at 80mph.’
