The Live Draw for this competition was held on Thursday 23rd December 2021.

 

A cornerstone of the British sports car world. A car recognised and loved by so many for its usability, practicality and its gorgeous looks.

The most sought after of the MGB GT’s. Its elegant, sophisticated looks paired with the glorious rumble of the small block V8 are a recipe for a thrilling driving experience.

Our example is one of the 2591 V8 cars produced by MG between 1973 and 1976 and is one of the very best MGB’s we’ve had through our workshop. Finished in vibrant maroon red with black accents, it is a classic and classy colour combination. The Rover sourced small-black V8 delivers 137BHP which was more than enough to get this small, nimble little sports car to move and move quickly. Interestingly, the V8 used in the MGB GT was the lightest V8 engine available at the time, so the V8 actually took 20 kilograms off the nose of these wonderful British cars compared to the 4 cylinder engine.

This car has one of the most well documented histories on any of our competition cars with invoices from parts specialists as well as extensive MOT histories dating back to the early 1990s. The file also includes photos from its bare metal rebuild in the early 2010s with photographs of it’s journey for it’s next owner to pour over.

This car also features a fold back sunroof for those warm summers days where you can roll back the top and go out for a blast to enjoy that intoxicating V8 rumble and the playful dynamics of the MG’s handling.

One look at its famous slender grille and you can’t miss that glorious badge staring straight back at you with the simple “V8”. The car also features the multi-piece wheels which were a signature of the V8’s and special editions that came out during the cars production run.
