1973-1976 MG B GT V8 specifications

1973-1976 MG B GT V8 specifications Classic and Performance Car

MG's second try at a big engined MGB which had more success than the first as the main ingredient, the 3.5-litre Rover V8 engine, was so right for the car. Weight was very little different to the B-series, and since the engine bay was created to accept a V-engine, the V8 fitted with few modifications. The 1975 body and bumper modifications were carried over in the V8.
