1998 TVR Chimaera 4.0 from UK and Ireland

Summary:

Fantastic

Faults:

Only a couple of minor things, the windscreen wiper motor needed replacing along with the oil pressure gauge - both under warranty.

General Comments:

From the moment I drove it out of the show room the car has just got better and better. Yes it's had a few annoying little problems, but the sound of the engine, the handling and performance out weigh any such gremlins.

I've been bitten back once in the wet, a quick spin by over use of my right foot! I was warned to respect it in the wet however.

In the dry nothing can beat it especially on an open country road.

Other than that I use it every day, with a fuel consumption better than my V6 Golf and a boot big enough for 3 sets of clubs it's brilliant.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
