1993-1995 MG RV8 specifications


In this incarnation of the MGB, the rubber bumper spec body was taken and modified to accept a new set of outer panels. The engine was a 3.9-litre Range Rover EFi V8 with 185bhp. A five-speed gearbox, derived from the Rover SD1, was used along with a new Salisbury axle. Very significant modifications were made to the suspension and brakes to bring the car up to date. The interior featured magnolia leather and burr elm. Most RV8s made were sold in Japan, but many of them have made their way back to the UK.
