1999 TVR Chi­MaeRa

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Classic Anniversaries -

JOhn hOlDen ‘It re­ally stands out in the crowd. I was ini­tially look­ing for a Cherry Red car, but once I’d seen it in yel­low I just had to have it. I come from an en­gi­neer­ing back­ground, and re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the TVR for what it is. I also ser­vice it my­self on my four-post ramp. It has quite a spe­cial ex­haust, too – it’s fully stain­less steel, and I’ve opened up the si­lencer and re­placed it with a cross­over set-up. This gives it a nice bur­ble and it sounds amaz­ing in tun­nels. I’ve pre­vi­ously owned a TVR Taimar and a TVR Tas­min, but I wouldn’t even con­tem­plate getting rid of the Chi­maera.’
