 Vehicle Description
The history of British sportscar manufacturer TVR has always been a bit of a roller coaster. From the early years of TreVoR Wilkinson ownership that set an early tone and high-bar for innovative designs and lightweight construction, to the nostalgia fan-favorite Martin Lilley era that borne wildly popular cars but practically no financial success, and ultimately to the uber-accomplished Peter Wheeler syndicate that ushered cars like this fantastic 1990 TVR S2 convertible into the automotive zeitgeist. No other manufacturer can boast such an eclectic, sporty, and downright fun model line quite like this, and if we were to even begin to attempt to go through all that beloved automotive diversity in this limited space, wed never do the brand justice. Whats important to know is that this is a treasured make of cars thats respected all over the world, and the S-series line is the one thats remembered best, even with TVR still manufacturing new cars today. Cars like this very clean S2 are what turned TVR away from the brink of extinction and will therefore always be revered and collected by hobbyists across the globe. Oh, and theyre a load of fun to drive, too. br / br / Its easy to spot a TVR S-series at a car show, just look for the crowd thats gathering around the bonnet. In the US, that crowd is usually arguing about how it cant be an Alfa, because it looks too aggressive and sporty, and how it doesnt smell like Paco Rabanne and an electrical fire (Just kidding, Alfas are amazing too). Of course, painting it a vivid shade of blue metallic never hurts, and its a great choice considering TVR would literally paint cars any colour you want!. Smack in the middle of the 80s and 90s affordable sports car boom that so many of us Gen X and Y guys cherished, this convertible is a familiar face that has really aged gracefully through the years. This particular S2 has always been a driver, and the paint has a very good shine and luster with only minor imperfections to be found here and there upon closer inspection. Composed of a five-piece fiberglass body, the panel fit and alignment is quite good, especially for a convertible, all of which is evidence of a life lived easy before it was imported from across the pond. Styling features include the open-mouth front valance, hood scoop, integrated ducktail spoiler, and the twin tailpipes centered underneath the oversized license plate slot. If youre familiar with British motoring, theres certainly no mistaking the S2 for anything else, and how many cars built today can make that claim? br / br / The handsome white interior is all original, showing very nice preservation with a few signs of use, but definitely nothing beyond whats expected of the age. The bucket seats are remarkably comfortable and for a small car, theres plenty of room once youre settled behind the wheel, which is on the wrong side on the car if you havent already noticed. The layout is much more luxurious than youd expect for a car in this price range, with sporty TVR gauges, well-placed switches and knobs, a thick TVR steering wheel, and a slick-shifting 5-speed manual transmission thats just inches away. Theyre all organized inside the beautifully designed dash/middle console combo that anchors the interior, which also houses an AM/FM/CD head unit that provides all the entertainment. White door panels match the seats, the blue carpets and floor mats below are very plush and accented with white piping on, and theres a surprising amount of storage space both behind the seat and out back in the trunk. Fine, its a boot, settle down Nigel. Overhead, theres a very unique hybrid convertible roof that doubles as both a targa top (thanks to two removable panels) and conventional roadster when its dropped down.br / br / The numbers-matching 2.9 liter Cologne V6 from Ford delivers a peppy 170 horsepower that can get very lively in the corners, and thanks to a fuel-injection system and modern components, its responsive when properly maintained. Sturdy and reliable, the engine has an enthusiastic demeanor that suits the sporty look of the car, and in the years since it was imported into Texas, it has obviously been well-kept, pulling the 2-seater around with gusto, letting loose with great British sounds from the dual exhaust pipes out back. The 5-speed gearbox snaps through the gates easily and clutch action is light, so you will quickly find this TVR to be a great dance partner. With a lightweight body and fully independent rear suspension, performance is brisk and handling is excellent, and power front disc brakes bring the whole show to quick stop. A clean undercarriage, solid structural members, and no obvious signs of trouble all make this S2 a really great find. Blacked-out TVR alloys are fitted and carry 205/60/15 performance radials that look right.br / br / Someone took very good care of this TRV, and were lucky that she was Brexited stateside to give all those Alfas and Triumphs a run for their Pounds. For an affordably-priced British sports car, perhaps this S2 convertible finally deserves a chance to make a first impression in the U.S. of A. Come see it today!br/br/
