MG RV8.jpg

MG RV8. 1992–5 (prod. 2,000). 2-door convertible. F/R, 3950 cm³ (V8 OHC). Revival of MGB GT V8, using Heritage body parts, but in the form that was demanded but never produced: a convertible. Enlarged ex-Buick V8, producing only 187 bhp. First true MG since demise of MGB in 1980 and not a warmed-over Austin. New MG logo. Popular in Japan where car suited British retro craze, and most (1,579) went there (330 stayed behind in UK). Certainly not a 1990s-modern car, not a TVR rival, but a throwback to the 1960s and the idea of traditional, open-top touring.
