The TVR 420 SEAC is a sports car designed and built between 1986 and 1988. It is considered as the ultimate 'wedge' TVR and is the final of TVR wedge family. Unlike the other wedges the 420 SEAC was different. The acronym SEAC stands for Special Equipment Aramid Composite, that means that more than 20% of the body was Kevlar unlike the others wedges full fibreglass construction. The use of Kevlar made the car more than 100kg (220lb) lighter without compromising the body rigidity. That, in addition to the highly tuned Rover V8 engine, made the car extremely quick but had its effect on price which was twice as much as a standard 350i. In addition, the SEAC models can be distinguished by the large rear spoiler and the rounder nose. By 1988, when the 420 SEAC was replaced by the even more powerful 450 SEAC, about 40 cars had been built.

First registered on the 8th December, 1987, E320 EEO was the 1987 Motor show car, also nicknamed the 'Wild Rover' from the May 1988 Car Magazine a copy of which is with the history file featuring this very car. High resolution photographs of the car on the 1987 Motor show stand are included in the history file and show the car as new. The car, as it stands now, is not far short of this condition to this day, having covered just 23,000 miles from new, it is in stunning condition.

Within the impressive history file are 22 MoT test certificates warranting the low mileage, the original sales invoice from Haughins TVR Agent to a Mr. D. Carter of Kendal who part exchanged his TVR 390 SE, this invoice also confirms this is the Ex-Motor show car, the original TVR Handbook, service book and original photographs of the TVR at the motor show coupled with magazines in which the car has featured.

This 420 also boasts stainless steel manifolds and exhaust, new hood and carpets, factory supplied polished OZ Split rim alloy wheels and also a fitted specialist car cover in green. In 2009, the previous owner also had V8 Developments fulfil an engine rebuild that cost circa £7,500, this just part of the fantastic care in which he kept the vehicle during his 20 years, including being kept in a heated garage throughout that time.

A TVR in superb condition with fantastic history provides a great opportunity to buy a part of TVR history.
