MOT: July 2019
The TVR Tamora is a 2-seater sports car built from 2002 by British firm TVR, filling the gap left by the company's Chimaera and Griffith models. Designed by Lee Hodgetts and Darren Hobbs, it was the entry-level model in the TVR's range of models priced at £43,460.
The Tamora is fitted with a TVR's in-house 'Speed Six', a DOHC 3605 cc six-cylinder engine rated at 350 hp (260 kW) at 7200 rpm and 290 lb?ft (390 N?m) of torque at 5500 rpm, mated to a five-speed manual. Brake rotors are 12.0 inches up front, and 11.1 inches in the back, both clamped by AP Racing calipers. The suspension is a double wishbone setup at all four corners. Standard wheels are 16×7 inch aluminium, with 225/50ZR-16 Avon ZZ3 tires. The Tamora is built on a 93-inch wheelbase, and the car's overall profile is 154.5 inches long, 67.5 inches inches wide and 47.4 inches high. It weighs 2,337 pounds with 58/42 weight distribution. Keeping with the TVR tradition, the Tamora lacks driving aids such as traction control and ABS as well as air bags.
According to Autocar magazine, the Tamora is capable of accelerating 0–60 mph in 4.2 seconds, and completes the quarter mile in 12.5 seconds at 119 mph (192 km/h). Top speed is over 170 mph. The Tamora also provided the base for the T350 coupe.
This example is one of the last, if not the very last, TVR Tamora to drive off the production line from TVR Blackpool before the factory ceased production. It is the 2005 face lift version with A/C, and has the later Tuscan 2 seats fitted. The vendor describes this late example as driving very well with both the Engine and Gear Box in great condition and the car is be supplied with a new MOT.
The car has not been used very much over the last 8 years or so as can be seen from the MOTS, it requires restoration work to the seats and carpets to bring it back to its former glory, in addition the bodywork could do with some light tidying up. This is a very rare opportunity to buy a TVR that has had one owner from new.
