Iconic Auctioneers is to offer the first of two special TVR T350 Cs built for the 2002 British Motor Show at its Supercar Fest Sale of Iconic & Classic Cars at Sywell Aerodrome on 18 May with a guide price of £30-35k.

Iconic said that car number one is ‘One the rarest TVRs ever produced’ because TVR chairman Peter Wheeler commissioned it with a 4.0-litre Speed Six engine, giving it more power than later production cars.

'It’s a modern classic from the end of British sports car history'

Iconic Auctioneers’ classic car specialist, Arwel Richards,​​​​ told CCW: ‘We’ve confirmed this as the first T350 and it is listed as the Motor Show car in the TVR factory build sheets. This is not just a special car – it is perhaps the last modern sports car to be launched in such a uniquely British way. It’s a modern classic from the end of British sports car history.

‘TVR Engineering owned the car – badged as a 350C and used as a press car – for the first three years and it was subsequently bought by a dealer. Our vendor is the third private keeper. It has excellent service history and is complemented by a documented engine re-build at 56,000 miles’. Chris Frear
