I was delighted to find your website devoted to one of my favourite MG's. When it came to sorting out the cover photograph for the MGV8 book, I wrote to the MGCC V8 Register, I naturally approached my good friends at Rover Group. They offered to send an RV8 on a transporter or by delivery driver, but as there were only two official Press Cars,they were in some demand. Then I got a call from Dennis Chick, from Rover Group's External Affairs: " we've got an RV8 ( the Woodcote Green Car) with Car Magazine in central london; would it be a problem for you to go and pick it up, and then keep it for weekend, and we'll collect it on monday? "Huh - what a dilemma!" After a lengthy pause of about a nano-second I agreed, and the next morning went into London by the tube to collect the car. One thing in particular sticks in my memory of the journey home, and that was the reaction the car got from other road users and passers-by: they didn't look at me with the concealed envy that a Porche or Mercedes driver might have received, they were all happy and friendly reactions. One small boy on the pavement turned and-suddenly catching sight of the RV8 - His face lit up with an enormous friendly grin. A Porsche 911 driver did a double take on the Albert Embankment and nearly crashed his expensive toy, while the driver of a large van alongside at the traffic lights on the A4 at Chiswick wound his window down and instead of heaping insults at me for driving a "namby pamby" sports car, asked with genuine enthusiasm about the engine under the bonnet. It just proved to me what many of us always knew - MG is the Marque of Friendship, and the management at Rover need to respect the accessible egalitarian root of the affordable sports car. Great site by the way and many thanks for the kind comments about the books.

Excellent Site - very informative for someone like myself who knew nothing about RV8's until last week. I've now test driven one and will be looking to buy one over the next week or two.

Fantastic web page, there is so much we don't know about the RV8 changes, for instance I thought my car had had an accident because it didn't have the VIN in the rear rain channel & it took sometime to discover early RV8 had the vin where mine is. It looks to me you are the man for the job to compile a history of our cars. Keep up the good work. Thanks Bill.

I recently purchased a beautiful RV8 with less than 500 Kms on the clock here in Nagoya, Japan. Having been an MGB fan and owner for many years I am Impressed with the balance that Rover found in melding tradition & modern Engineering.
