Another New Car – 1998 TVR Chimaera 4.0L V8

Simon has bought another new car to add to his collection.

The TVR Chimaera is a two-seater roadster sports car manufactured by TVR between 1992 and 2003. The name was derived from Chimera, the monstrous creature of Greek mythology, which was made of the parts of multiple animals.

First debuted at the 1992 Earl’s Court Motor Show, the Chimaera used the same backbone chassis as the Griffith and used the same derivatives of the Rover V8 engine. The car was intended to be the long distance tourer of the range and as such was longer, more spacious and had slightly softer suspension than its sister car.[2]

Simons Chimaera’s specification:

– 4.0L V8 producing 240 hp (179 kW; 243 PS),
– Torque 270 lb⋅ft (366 N⋅m) at 4,000 rpm
– Speed 245 km/h (152 mph)
– 0 to 60mph 5.1 seconds
– 0 to 100 mph 12.5 seconds

Please watch as Simon gives you an owners prospective of this car and few quirky features of this British icon. Simon also takes you for a drive to go through the feeling of driving this car and also for you to hear the straight piped engine noise, its a real ciphony.

Enjoy!

Peace & Love
