RV8 - Barons Saturday 22nd April 2017 For Sale by Auction (1998)
In 1989, MG produced new body panels for the standard MGB body shell, which in 1992 were used to create an updated MGB model. The suspension was only slightly updated, sharing the leaf spring rear of the MGB. The boot lid and doors were shared with the original car, as were the rear drum brakes. The engine was the 3.9-litre version of the aluminium Rover V8, similar to the one previously used in the MGB GT V8. A limited-slip differential was also fitted. The interior featured veneered burr elm woodwork and Connolly Leather.
A large proportion of the limited MG RV8 production went to Japan, 1579 of the 2000 produced, and only 330 RV8s were sold initially in the UK. Several hundred, of these cars were re-imported back to the UK , with a peak number of 485 registered at the DVLA in the UK.
