About this MG RV8 3.9 V8

This MGR V8 finished in Woodcote Green has just over 14,000 miles recorded from new. Imported to the UK on 11 March 2004 with a speedometer of 15,500km. A new mph speedo was fitted as part of UK preparation. The total mileage is now 14,250 and the original speedo remains with the car as additional mileage evidence 1989, Furthermore, the MoT History back to 2006 shows less than 2,000 miles covered in twelve years. As far as we can reasonably determine this low mileage would appear to be correct. 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 Rover V8, similar to the one previously used in the MGB GT V8. A limited-slip differential was also fitted. The interior featured veneered burr elm woodwork and Connolly Leather. 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. At import all the initial preparation was done by AutoCare, Highbridge, and all serviced as a 24 months service as listed on the sheet in the Service Record. This MG was then serviced and MoT annually at MG Rover, Weston-Super-Mare. A new MoT, fluid changes and a visual check have been carried out by Bridge Garage, Weston-super-Mare, the current Advisory free MoT expiring in November 2020. The car comes complete with the original bookpack, the Heritage Certificate, brochures, service pack and spare keys.
