RV8

The MG RV8 was an attempt to resurrect the MG name before the arrival of the MGF. With British motor Heritage producing new MGB body shells, it was decided to introduce a modern version of the MGB if production had continued. By fitting the 3.9 lt Rover V8 and 5 speed gearbox into an MGB MG finally produced the car it should have 20 years before. The RV8 is a stylish upgrade of the MGB with better suspension and brakes and a quality interior. The RV8 was hand built to a high standard and gives you the look of classic motoring but with modern internals. A true retro classic.
