I know Graham likes these and this one looks well cared for.

Apart from the boot spoiler this looks good and not much money.

Very nice Richard. Way outside my budget nowadays. And, I'd rather have a coupe smile

I looked at the V8 - it was rather nice. I also liked the XJS

Indeed, they are exceptional value for money especially the "R" which is supercharged and goes like a stabbed rat.

That is rather lovely too, it can't be long before these start increasing in value I guess.

Isn’t the MG a modified car with a V8 dropped into it? Not an original V8 car then. Still a nice car if well done.

MG never made a V8 roadster.

It does seem to indicate its a V8 conversion with a replacement body shell as well if I’m understanding it correctly

I think the Costello V8 conversions were the only roadster one's.


This one seems to be a one of but nicely done.

A delightful car, they may be inexpensive to purchase, but can be costly to run....
