The MG RV8 was produced from 1992 with some new body panels for the standard MGB body shell; to create a much updated MGB model. The suspension shared the leaf spring rear set-up of the MGB. The boot lid and doors were also shared with the original car, as were the rear drum brakes. The engine was the 3. 9-litre version of the aluminium Range Rover V8 SDi, coupled to the 5 speed LT77 gearbox which delivered power through a limited-slip differential.
A large proportion of the limited MG RV8 production went to Japan, 1, 579 of the 2000 produced, and only 330 RV8s were purchased initially in the UK. Several hundred of the cars exported to Japan were re-imported back to the UK, with a peak number of 485 registered at the DVLA in the UK.
From time-to-time we hand pick a small number of Japanese import cars for our stock. To meet our exacting criteria, they will need to be exceptional examples, with low mileage and in mint condition. Prestige cars were, when originally sold in Japan, very expensive and tended to be bought by wealthy individuals who maintained them well. Moreover, because salt is not used on Japanese roads there is, in our experience, significantly less corrosion evident when compared to UK cars of a similar age.
