Lot No. 223 -
1992 TVR 4.0 V8S
Sold for: £12,100
Becoming increasingly rare, this TVR V8S is a fabulous 90's British sports car.
The TVR 'S' Series was announced at the 1986 British International Motor Show, and as a result of a really positive response, the car went into production in less than 12 months with 250 orders confirmed before any cars started rolling out of the big doors that front Bristol Avenue in Blackpool. This was Peter Wheeler's first major development since buying the company from Martin Lilley, and the turning point in TVR's fortunes, and consequently these became very important cars in the history of TVR.
The ultimate incarnation of the 'S' was the 'V8S, a 240bhp TVR-tweaked 3.9-litre Rover powered monster that provided Ferrari-beating pace when it hit the streets in 1991. Only 410 were made out of a total production run of over 2,600 cars, and just 28 TVR V8S' remained licenced on the road last year in the UK.
This particular V8S was supplied new by Clive Greenhalgh at Team Central TVR Sports Cars. Presented in Metallic Silver with an attractive navy blue roof, grey leather seats with light grey piping, and finished with matching light grey carpets and a walnut dash. This TVR is fitted with an Alpine CD player with uprated speakers. The alloy wheels have recently been shod with brand new tires. Current mileage is just over 70,000. The underneath was 'Waxoyled' in December 2015 and the car had a 6,000mile service around the same time. Supplied with a substantial amount of history, 2 sets of keys and a full MoT expiring in January 2017.
