The Tuscan, initially with a 360bhp 4-litre version of TVR’s own straight-six, went on sale in 1999. The early cars were a curious mixture of ultra-pointy steering and disconcertingly soft suspension (Wheeler’s idea to make it more of a GT), though by the end of the year the damping had been improved. That was typical TVR: constant evolution. Which, of course, means the later the car, generally the better it is. 


In the early days there was a ‘Red Rose’ upgrade with an extra 20-30bhp, better brakes and tauter damping. That then formed the basis for the Tuscan S, which added front and rear spoilers to aid high-speed stability. Following Nikolai Smolensky’s buyout, the Tuscan Mk2 arrived in 2005 with a new front grille and fared lights. Underneath, the changes included revised suspension, a close-ratio gearbox, bigger brakes and – crucially – better-quality engine components. 

This wonderful low-mileage example, having covered a mere 25,546km from new, has remained in single ownership for a number of years. Described to be in immaculate condition it is finished in a beautiful purple with grey interior.
