SELLER REMARKS

It's hard not to immediately fall in love/lust with this 1979 TVR Taimar. After all. this rare British sports car is one of slickest designs around. and it looks even sleeker in the custom chameleon paint. So it's amazing you can get this low-mileage. turnkey-ready road carver for under $30K


The Taimar is quite rare - possibly as low as under 400 examples produced worldwide. So you already want a coupe like this one statistics alone. but we all know there is much more here. We all love the British sports machines because they can instantly be both sleek and sophisticated all in the first impression. The TVR's split bumpers front & rear. long fender line created by the headlights. and low fastback/hatchback profile is exactly how we want a nimble lightweight sports machine to look. The overall lines on this look great thanks to well-fitting fiberglass. and this also means you don't have to worry about body corrosion. Instead. you get to enjoy the extremely cool (and exceptionally expensive) Chromalusion paint that shifts between green. purple. and silver in different lights.


Open the door. and see exactly what you were hoping for. A proper British sports car requires a proper leather interior. Averaging less than 850 miles annually means there was little time to wear down the seats. So the tan buckets look and feels supple. As you sit in the seat. the center console has the perfect height. and the gearshift has the perfect placement. so the car just feels like an extension of you. You'll grab the three-spoke sports steering wheel. and arrayed in front is a dash full of Smiths gauges all working and ready to dance for you. And because a British sports car should always be an open air experience. all you need to do is reach up and fold back the canvas sunroof to be complete.


The real key to the TVR's fun is under the hood. Europeans know the secret to a good sportscar is all about keeping weight down and adding appropriate power. Ford's 3. 0-liter Essex V6 fit this placement perfectly. We never got an official version in the U. S. . but it's a terrific powerplant that was the heart of some of the best sports cars from Europe (so spares are still quite easy. ) It's compact design and peppy power creates for an exceptionally quick package in the lightweight TVR. So just about every car show you attend. you're going to be able to lift the hood and show off something unique. That's also why the motor looks so good today with a tidy presentation and proper maintenance. When you get this car out on the road. you're going to fall in love. We already mentioned how quick the lightweight design is. and you'll love the full control that comes from the four-speed manual transmission. Plus. the fully-independent sports suspension. front disc brakes. and modern Goodyear Eagle tires on correct 14-inch TVR alloys all come together to make for the perfect road-carving package.


This might be a rare gem. but we know you're not going to keep this chameleon locked away in your garage. The open road is calling. so answer it by calling us today!
