Ripon Autumn Classic 2011

1995 MG RV8 - M473 BHG

1995 MG RV8 - M473 BHG 

This one's for you Ann ...

The RV8 was released in 1993 by Rover with the intention of keeping the classic MG name alive and uniting traditional MG customers with more modern motoring enthusiasts. However, due to its very high price in the UK the car did not find the demand Rover had hoped for.

1,982 RV8's were manufactured in total, with 80% of them being sold in Japan, and the vast majority of Japanese versions being Woodcoat Green.

As well as the performance offered by a V8 engine in a 1,250 odd kg chassis, the interior featured luxury refinement in the form of veneered burr elm woodwork and Connolly leather.

Thanks Norm. I wasn't sure of it myself at first, but it is a grower!

Looks like it was built to compete with BMW. Seems like I'd read somewhere it was brought back after Mazda had so much success with the Miata.
