Launched at the 1992 Birmingham Motor Show, the RV8 signalled MG's return to the open sports car market. Just as the Cobra grew out of the less muscular AC Ace, so the RV8 evolved from the immortal MGB Roadster (hence the car's 'Project Adder' development code). Built around a thoroughly re-engineered and neatly restyled version of its predecessor's monocoque bodyshell, it was powered by a 3948cc V8 engine that developed some 190bhp and 318Nm of torque. Said to be capable of 135mph and 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds, the adoption of telescopic shock absorbers and anti-roll bars all round brought a notable improvement in handling. Trimmed to a high standard, its inviting interior boasted leather upholstery and rich wood veneers.

Finished in Woodcote Green with Stone Beige leather upholstery 'L827 TJK' was repatriated back to the UK from the car friendly climate of Japan in 2000 and displays 33,800 miles. Riding on alloy road wheels and fitted with a mohair hood we are informed the MG is offered with a collection of old MOT certificates, tax discs and a selection of invoices.
