The Aston Martin V8 first appeared back in 1970 with the advent of the DBS V8, and such was the success of the car that a convertible version was always considered. Aston Martin’s concern over building such a fast-powerful convertible car was eventually overcome and the long awaited V8 Volante first appeared in June 1978. The first series cars had the Weber carburettor 5.3 litre V8 engine with either the Chrysler ...

  • Subsequent to the launch of the Mazda MX-5 in 1989, British Motor Heritage (by then owned by The Rover Group) had placed the MGB bodyshell back in production to serve the MGB restoration market.

The MG RV8 is a heavily revised MGB powered by a 3.9 litre all aluminium Rover V8 engine outputting 190bhp, delivered to the rear wheels ...
