WITH ONLY 1073 MILES THIS SUPERB SUPER RARE MG RV8 IS AS NEW THROUGHOUT. 1 OF A TOTAL BUILD OF ONLY 1983 FINISHED IN OXFORD BLUE PEARLESCENT WITH CREAM LEATHER TRIM. Collectors/Investers this is a one off! Photos also showing underside. Out of the 1983 produced 1581 were supplied to Japan leaving just 402 for the UK and European Market . The MG RV8 was a hugely important step in the 1990's rebirth of MG Cars after more than a decade of only producing saloons and hatchbacks. Since Abingdon's closure in 1980, MG had been reserved for the Metro , Maestro and Montego and , although these cars were worthy, what enthusiasts really wanted was a new MG roadster . In creating the RV8, Rover very cleverly used a combination of off-the-shelf parts, such as the Range Rover's V8 engine and British Motor Heritage MGB bodyshell. So, in this re-incarnation of the MGB, the rubber bumper specification body was taken and modified to accept a new set of beautifully curvaceous outer panels. The 3.9-litre Range Rover EFi V8 engine developed 185bhp, and gave the RV8 enough power to crack six seconds for the 0-60mph run. A five-speed LT77 gearbox, derived from the Rover SD1 was used along with a new Salisbury axle. Very significant modifications were made to the suspension and brakes to bring the car up to date. The interior featured leather and burr elm facia and door cappings. Japan proved to be a successful market during the recession of the 1990's and, of the 1983 MG RV8's made, 1581 were sold out there, although many have subsequently come back home to the UK. Including this example that was repatriated in 2017
