Footnotes

  • An immensely important introduction for the Blackpool company, the TVR 'S' previewed at the 1986 Motor Show and commenced production in the second half of 1987. The model's introduction marked TVR's return to a lower price bracket, broadening the marque's appeal, and although it looked similar to the old 3000S convertible of the late 1970s, was virtually all new as far as its body and chassis were concerned. Beneath the nostalgically familiar exterior was a new, tubular, independently suspended frame incorporating a semi-trailing-link rear axle, while the fuel-injected Ford 2.8-litre V6 engine and five-speed gearbox were carried over from the existing 2.8i model. The stylish newcomer proved an immense success from the start, boosting TVR's annual production past the 700 mark for the first time in 1988 when three out of every four models sold was an 'S'.

    This example of the popular TVR 'S' was purchased by the current owner in October 2011 and benefits from servicing (including a new battery) by a former TVR dealer undertaken in June 2012. A total of 47,200 miles is displayed on the odometer and the car's condition is described as 'average for age'. 'E688 EEO' comes with sundry bills, MoT to 14th June 2013 and Swansea V5 document, and is taxed until the end of October.

    No reserve.
