MGR V8 Manual

The MGR V8 was conceived in 1988 at the time the Heritage bodyshells were being produced by British Motor Heritage. The cars were fitted with a 185bhp version of Rovers incredible V8 engine, and mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. The cars when new were over £26000. This was to limit sales to keep registrations in line with the production capability at the factory. The weekly production capacity was limited to generally 15 units per week, rising very occasionally to 18 cars. The cars were a more luxurious car than its “B” contemporary, and with this version of V8 power unit, the performance was significantly better than a “B”, the 0-60 sprint taking a mere 6 seconds. Production started in 1993 and ended in 1995, and in total 1983 cars were produced making it one of the lowest volumes of any MG model. Of the total production around 1500 cars were exported to Japan after a hugely successful motor show there in 1993, and this particular example has like many, returned from the Land of the Rising Sun.

The car was registered in the UK in August 2006. The car now shows 48000 miles. It is finished in Woodcote Green Metallic, with a parchment hide interior along with a stunning burr walnut dash. It comes complete with its original alloys, and is also shod with good tyres. The car is in truly stunning condition and drives superbly. The paintwork positively gleams, the seats are in lovely condition, and the hood although original is in excellent condition.

This gorgeous motor car comes with a comprehensive history file for its recent UK life. In that 5 year period, it has only covered around 750 miles. Most recently has been a service and replacement cylinder head and exhaust manifold gaskets.

All our cars come with 12 months MOT, and this stunning RV8 is no exception. It wants for nothing, and being so rare is bound to be a great investment in the coming years. Would it look good on your driveway at only £11995?
