TVR TUSCAN 4.0 FFF2 Engine Rebuild & Warranty (2002)
4.0 FFF 2 engine built in 2012 with simplex chain conversion(£20k rebuild cost)
I bought this TVR in April this year to take it on a petrol-heads dream tour of Europe. This car really stood out for me because of the extensive FFF engine rebuild. Just before the tour I treated the car to some brand new Gaz Gold Pro coilover, CliveF decat and powertech 150mm per cans (sounds perfect, lots of pops and crackles without being too loud), and a few other bits at Racing Green to make it the ultimate on the Alpine passes.
The car is simply epic in the mountains with the roof neatly stored in the boot, nothing exhilarates like a TVR Tuscan, the astonishing pace, the awesome noise and the stunning looks.
In all 2,500 miles, Autobahn, alpine passes, and standstill traffic, the car didn’t skip a beat, a true reflection of the mechanical condition of this vehicle.
The interior of the car is in great condition, white leather dash & door cards with dark blue leather seats to match the paint. This car has the later interior with upper leather door cards and suede roof lining & high level brake light. The only negative for the interior is discoloured carpets. However they are still in good condition so havent warrented replacement yet.
The dark blue paint looks fantastic in the sun, however it could do with some TLC as there are stone chips on the front, and a graze on the rear. This is the weakest point of the car and should be easily sortable for the next owner with a front end respray. Most people won’t even notice the imperfections however I’m used to mirror like paint on my cars and unfortunately this TVR doesn’t hit that criteria. However this doesn’t distract from the amazing appearance and visual punch of the Tuscan.

30,000 miles and 4 years ago the engine underwent a FULL rebuild at Racing Green totalling a massive £20,000. This engine has had the highly regarded FFF 2 head upgrade which was described by Richard Hammand as "really rather brilliant". The FFF engine really is the best upgrade you can give your TVR! The FFF is a Racing Green redesigned head removing the main cause for Tuscan engine failure completely. The design is so good Racing Green offer a 5-year warranty! This car has 1 year remaining of this warranty. Other highlights of the engine rebuild include: Crank Re-grind, lightweight flywheel & simplex chain conversion.
FFF 2 Head has current warranty with Racing Green TVR until 20/08/2017
I will include the original Cats in the sale should you need them for MOT.
