The MG B was the greatest selling sports car of all time and for many years MG had not produced a roadster in true MG style. MG undertook an extensive survey to establish the publics perception of the MG badge. MG concluded that the MG name still had huge potential and put together a group of specialists to reinvent the MG sports car.
Eventually an all new roadster would be produced, but to wet the appetite a limited production of 2000 Modernised Beefed up MGB's were to be produced. Work started on reworking an MGB heritage shell and original hardware yet on completion only 5% of the original parts remained. Initial tests on the first prototypes were very encouraging, particularly in the front and rear crash testing, and only minor modifications were needed.
The RV8 was completed and went on sale in '93 with 1500 being snapped up by customers in Japan and the rest being sold in the U.K. and Europe.
Many 'experts' have criticised the RV8 for its lack of power steering anc choice of suspension but most believe they are missing the point of the RV8, which was to retain the classic roadster feel combined with modern refinements and reliability. Fortunately in fitting the latest tyres and up rated dampers produced by Spax and Koni any such discrepancies have been resolved on most RV8's and steering is now light and positive and, combined with the the deeply padded leather seats, comfort is excellent. On top of this there is no mistaking the cars power and torque. With almost 4 litres of v8 injection through a 5 speed Range Rover gearbox pulling power in any gear is first rate. So if you fancy a car with grunt, classic good looks luxury and reliability, the RV8s for you.
