If there is such thing as a sensible TVR, then the Chimaera is it. This model most closely follows the styling cues of the classic TVR 'S' series of cars, and has proved to be the best-selling TVR ever. A combination of keen pricing, perceived accessibility and towering performance tempted an unprecedented amount of buyers to sign on the dotted line marked Chimaera, and it's not hard to feel a pang of jealousy. As a used purchase the Chimaera looks similarly tempting, with a number of low-mileage cars in the dealer network for MGF-money. If you're more hard man than new man, the keys to the TVR might well prove impossible to resist.
The TVR Chimaera is without doubt the best way to access the joys of TVR ownership. Less intimidating and more thoroughly sorted than the Cerbera and Griffith models, it nonetheless offers 95% of the thrills with a tiny dash of practicality. The best model to plump for is probably a late Chimaera 4.5, and look for one with as low mileage as you can afford. Remember, a TVR is quite unlike a mass-production car and you'll have to put up with a greater probability of unreliability and some annoying characteristics. It'll all become worthwhile as soon as the road opens up and you hear the wail of the big V8. Then you'll understand what made the Chimaera TVR's most popular car.
