Description

TVR’s Griffith and Chimaera duo may be named after fierce and frightening mythical creatures, but the prospect of owning either of the cars themselves should be nothing to be scared away by! This book pays no attention to the various myths and tall-tales surrounding these cars, and instead offers buying advice and tips to the potential custodian of either of these brutish British sports cars. Few cars manage to both stir the soul and raise the pulse in the way a TVR can, and the ownership experience can be an extremely rewarding one.

Having this book in your pocket is just like having a real marque expert by your side. Benefit from Richard Kitchen’s years of TVR ownership and experience, learn how to spot a bad example quickly, and how to assess a promising one like a professional. Get the right TVR Chimaera or Griffith at the right price! Packed with good advice – from running costs, through paperwork, vital statistics, valuation, and the TVR community, to whether a TVR Chimaera or Griffith will suit you and your lifestyle – this is THE COMPLETE GUIDE to choosing, assessing and buying the car of your dreams.

The author

Growing up near Southampton in the 1980s, Richard Kitchen became obsessed by all things automotive. A love of TVRs turned into a business when he took over the running of Southways Automotive Ltd in 2012, which is now a renowned classic TVR specialist. The father of three boys, and husband to a long-suffering wife, Richard has restored, or had a hand in the body-off chassis restorations of many TVRs over the past few years. He has owned one of the last TVR S1s produced since 2013, and previously owned a Chimaera 400. He has also contributed short articles to Practical Classics and Citroënian magazines.
