1995 MG RV8 17,000 (Not Warranted) £12,600 + buyers premium


Description from The Vendor:

My husband, Stan bought this car in October 2006, it was almost an impulse buy as it was only a few weeks previous that he had driven a friend’s RV8.

We were living in Cheshire & were members of the Potteries & South Cheshire MGOC. With the club, we regularly went to car shows & trips out organised by club members. 

One couple arranged a trip to Glendalough in County Wicklow where we took part in a charity run organised by a local MG club.

The ‘big trip’ was to Itter in the Tirol, Austria with friends,  who also had an RV8, driving through France & Germany. Once there we went out each day exploring the area & getting quite a lot of attention.

Unfortunately, Stan passed away in July 2011, club members organised a possession of MG’s led by my son-in-law driving Stan’s car.

I moved back to Cornwall in October 2014 & although I had thought of selling it the RV8 came with me.

Still undecided about what I was doing with the car I joined the Cornwall MGOC, a great bunch of people who have looked after me. With the club, I  have been on three ‘weekends away with my sister joining me. The 1st was to Stratford, the 2nd to Minehead & the 3rd to Dorchester.

I had power steering fitted by Clive Wheatley which has made the car much easier for me to drive. 

The reason I am now selling is because I don’t have the time to look after it as it deserves but driving it up to Poole I almost changed my mind!!! 


Auctioneer’s notes:

The vendor has decided to sell this car which she has owned, with her husband, for 16 years.  Sadly, he passed away some years back.  The lady has given a comprehensive and full description and all I will add is the technical spec. These V8 engines produce 188 HP which propel her from 0 – 60 in 5.9 seconds and she has a top speed of 135 mph.  Please book your slot and come and view this superb example of an RV8.
