1974 MG MGB V8

Absolute fantastic car with only 25.000 miles on the odometer since complete restoration in the UK in 2002. The car was specifically restored for the singer Sally Crewe and the restoration included new chassis and upgrade to a MG V8 and completed driveline from a MGB GT. During the complete restoration in 2002, the car also got an insulated convertible top. The previous Danish owner have had the car since 2008. The car has been driver on Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Goodwood and is very fast and well sorted. The car has Danish papers and registration. Truly a car in great condition that can be driver and enjoyed for many years.

History of the MGB GT V8:
MG began offering the MGB GT V8 in 1973 utilizing the ubiquitous aluminum block 3,528 cc Rover V8 engine, first fitted to the Rover P5B. The engine produced 193 lb·ft (262 N·m) of torque and hit 60 mph (97 km/h) in 7.7 seconds and go on to a 125 mph (201 km/h) top speed.
         
By virtue of its aluminum cylinder block and heads, the Rover V8 engine weighed approximately 40 pounds less than MG's iron four-cylinder. Unlike the MGC, the V8 that provided the MGB GT V8's increased power and torque did not require significant chassis changes nor sacrifice handling. Both chrome and rubber-bumper GT versions of the V8-powered MGB were produced by the factory with production ending in 1976. MG never attempted to export the MGB GT V8 to the United States. It chose not to develop a left-hand-drive version of the MGB GT V8 although the Rover V8 engine was offered in US-bound Rover models.
