The private sale of a Woodcote Green MGRV8 that has, with few exceptions, been only used in the dry since being imported to the UK in 2001. The vehicle has benefited from improvements in handling and drive-ability with the retrofitting by Rover Japan of power steering and recent gas type shock absorbers together with polyurethane bushes and heavy duty front springs. It has an upgraded engine cooling system and the air conditioning system has been retained. An RPI Tornado engine management chip, fuel pressure controller and Magnatec HT leads gives enhanced performance and fuel economy. Security is with a Toad Thatcham 1 alarm and immobiliser.
The car is in an excellent condition and has an MOT valid until April 2018.
