MG RV8 (1993-1995) Published on Thursday, 20 December 2012 00:00 The last hurrah for the MG brand or the start of a new era? The RV8 is the MGB at its most sophisticated. There’s no arguing with the status of the MGB as Britain’s favourite classic but if you like the style of the B but it just seems a touch mundane in standard four-cylinder flavour then the RV8 is the answer. Either the last gasp of the traditional MG sports car or the dawning of a brave new era depending on your point of view, the RV8 offers much improved practicality over the B as a daily driver. It also comes with the bonus of a hefty dose of extra power thanks to its use of the long-serving Rover V8. The RV8 ...

FortyOneSix – MG RV8: classic or curio?

MG RV8 : classic or curio? ‘Its retro appeal was more than skin deep’ In the early 1990s, MG was looking rather rudderless. Memories of hotted-up Metros, Maestros and Montegos were fading while the MGF was still on the drawing board. These were wilderness years for a once-great marque, but there was a glimmer of hope for the future in the form of. the RV8. This quirky anachronism was intended to bridge the gap between MG traditionalists and those who wanted to see it grow into a modern sports car company. It was also a way of keeping the MG badge alive until the arrival of the more mainstream MGF. With British Motor Heritage manufacturing new MGB bodyshells and the Rover V8 ...

MG RV8 History [edit ] In structure the MGB was an innovative, modern, design in 1962, utilizing a monocoque structure instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction used on both the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB’s rival, the Triumph TR series. [ 2 ] However components such as brakes and suspension were developments of the earlier 1955 MGA with the B-Series engine having its origins in 1947. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were standard, and a comfortable driver’s compartment offered plenty of legroom. A parcel shelf was fitted behind the seats. The MGB’s performance was considered brisk ...

  MG RV8 (January 2006) If classic looks coupled with modern performance is your bag, the MG RV8 could be for you January, 2006 Having clung to survival during the 1980s via a string of uninspiring sedans, MG’s return to the ranks of sports car manufacturers seemed highly improbable. Then in 1992 came news of a revamped and re-engineered version of the MGB; a car that at the time of its demise in 1981 held the all-time record for sports car production. By the early 1990s the name that traced its lineage to a Morris Cowley modified in 1924 by Cecil Kimber was owned by Rover and the revamped ‘B’ was to be developed by the company’s boutique offshoot, Rover Special Products. ...
