MGR V8 (1992-1995)

MGR V8 (1992-1995)
The success of the Mazda MX-5 clearly showed that the market for small two-seater sports cars was not as small as expected when production of the MGB was discontinued 10 years earlier. So they took the most English of all possible routes, took a Heritage body and equipped it generously in terms of engine and interior. Although the leaf spring and drum brake were heavily criticised in the trade press, 5.9 sec on 62mph was an announcement even to the supersport class.

The RV8 was built from 1993-1995 in 2000, exclusively right-hand drive versions, which was an unexpected result especially in Japan. The main merit of the RV8, however, was to prepare market and brand for the new MGF, which succeeded it in 1995.
