The appropriately registered `L3 MGB' has remained in its current ownership since 2010. A genuine home market car, it has had just four keepers and covered 86,500 miles since being first registered in March 1994. It is apparently one of only 41 examples finished in the perennially attractive colour of Nightfire Red, and benefits from the recent replacement of its catalytic convertors, radiator and battery. The MG is now considered by the vendor to have `very good' bodywork, paintwork, Cream leather upholstery, V8 engine and five-speed manual transmission, and is being made available complete with: its original book pack plus service book, large collection of invoices, Heritage Certificate, and every MOT from 1997, including one valid into May 2020. The basis of the R V8 was a resculptured British Motor Heritage bodyshell powered by a 190bhp version of Rover's ubiquitous all-alloy engine. Two thousand examples were manufactured between 1992 and 1995, over 75 percent of which were exported to Japan.
