The TVR S series, a line of sports cars, was announced at the 1986 British International Motor Show. Due to a massive positive response, the car went into production in less than 12 months, with 250 pre-manufacture orders. This was Peter Wheeler’s first major development since buying the company from Martin Lilley, and the turning point in TVR’s fortunes.

The S-Series continually evolved, as popularity of the model took off. Early versions used the same Ford 2.8-litre Cologne V6 as the original Tasmin, but this was replaced from 1988 in the S2 by Ford’s new 2.9-litre Granada V6. These highly sought-after cars paved the way for the more traditionally-styled Griffith and Chimera.

Purchased by the vendor from 4 Star Classics in the UK, the car was imported to South Africa on the 13th of September 2012. Offered in fantastic condition and with a modest 44,000 miles from new, it is hard to believe that the car is 29 years old!
