The TVR Chimaera is a two-seater convertible sports car manufactured by TVR between 1992 and 2003. The name was derived from Chimera, the monstrous creature of Greek mythology, which was made of the parts of multiple animals.
The indicator recess' were designed by the manager's (Peter Wheeler)dog, Ned Wheeler. The car used the same backbone chassis as the Griffith and used the same derivatives of the Rover V8 engine.
The Chimaera was intended to be the long distance tourer of the range and as such was longer, more spacious and had slightly softer suspension than its sister car.
