MG RV8 Convertible
I’ve always marvelled at these true British hand-built rarities. Very familiar classic lines, with the build quality and presentation akin to an Aston Martin. Having now driven this beautiful V8 cruising machine for over 200 miles I absolutely get it! Visually superb in the only colour to have Woodcote Green, this completely unmolested example has been part of a collection and lovingly cared for by an avid MG-Rover enthusiast for the last 13 years. The split-rim BBS style alloy wheels look stunning and are shod with high quality Bridgestone tyres all round. Her gentleman’s club interior is a cosseting blend of polished wood veneers and ruched soft leather. Ice cold air conditioning is a nice little touch. There is an unused tonneau cover and a leather bound wind deflector. It’s also nice to see a period Kenwood audio system in place…… not that you’ll ever listen to it with that burbling twin exhaust in your left ear! She’s only had 2 previous owners prior to him and comes with a full Heritage Certificate. In her 24-year lifetime, she’s only covered a mere 33,000 miles and hence presents herself as a vehicle only 2 years of age. I have a folder with comprehensive history, original brochures, Invoices and MOTs. If the recipe for a true collector’s vehicle is rarity, originality and ridiculously low mileage, then this ticks all of the boxes!
