Immaculate and unmarked Connolly Stone Beige leather, (Code SMJ) with a ruched pattern and being a UK home market car the Elm Burr veneer facia panel, centre console and door cappings are flawless the interior is pure luxury. The original VDO black-on-white gauges all work perfectly, all interior chrome fittings are of a very high standard. The deep pile dark stone beige carpets with original MG carpet overmats are free from wear and look as new. The original leather gear knob is in excellent order, a quality wind deflector has also been fitted... A stunning cockpit
The immediately recognisable hourglass shape of the MG RV8 is finished in optional Oxford Blue Pearlescent (Code 1203 JSJ) this is 1 of only 36 produced in this colour for the UK Market making it very rare indeed. The all original paintwork has a uniformed and deep gloss finish throughout. The original correct panels produced by Abbey Panels are virtually unmarked and panel fit as per it left the factory, no evidence of corrosion as expected with a car that has spent most of its life tucked away in a garage. The original factory fitted soft top made by Tickford is pristine and rear screen perfectly clear. All original external decals are in exceptional order as is the brightwork and lights. The original windscreen still supports the factory etched chassis number and the screen frame as new… A Classic is born.
The unmistakeable 5 lattice cast alloy 15x6J road wheels have been fully diamond cut and restored to the highest standard to remove the inherent lacquer lifting issues that plagued these cars. The original MG centre security caps are unmarked. The Zender split rim bolts have no corrosion or damage. All Matching Continental Premium Contact 205/65 R15 tyres are as new the factory original spare has never been fitted. Servo assisted ventilated front disc brakes with 4-piston callipers and rear drums give the car excellent braking feel and capability.
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 later design R380 5-speed gearbox is perfect changing with ease and precisely, the clutch is light and progressive, a costly (£2154) electric power steering system has been fitted making it a joy to drive.

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.
