The all original paintwork has a uniformed and deep gloss finish throughout.

The Servo assisted ventilated front disc brakes with 4-piston callipers and rear drums give the car excellent braking feel and capability.

Engine & Transmission

The 3.9 litre V8 is extremely usable with lots of torque and 190bhp giving effortless midrange power. 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 135mph this MG is no slouch. The engine bay is spotlessly clean and factory original with all markings plates and stickers present. The addictive V8 burble through the twin original exhaust is magical. The strong 5-speed gearbox is perfect changing with ease and precisely, the clutch is light and progressive making it a joy to drive.


This is without doubt probably the most desirable and rare MG RV8 on the market today.

The service history is comprehensive with every MOT back to the 1990's.

Only ever having 2 owners this stunning RV8 was first registered to Mr Dignan of Barrow Upon Soar on 1st October 1993. The second owner an MG enthusiast purchased this stunning RV8 from MG main dealers Brown & Gammons Ltd on 28th October 1999 having only covered 10k miles and has lovingly cherished the car for the last 20 years covering a further 14k miles.

More Details

The MG RV8 was bought to fruition by Rover Special Projects team, a team of 30 planners, engineers and designers based at Gaydon, Rovers test track in Warwickshire. Headed by RSP Director, Steve Schlemmer, the project was called Adder in recognition of the Anglo-American Cobra of the 60s, their objective was to recreate the MGB as it would have been had it never left production. Launched at the British Motor Show in 1992, the MG RV8 marked the welcome return of the MG sports car and the famous octagonal badge. At a price of £26,500 when new just 1983 units were made of which 1581 were sold to Japan.
