I’ve been on the lookout for a decent RV8 for a while now and the third one I saw I knew was the one. The 2 previous Japanese imports I looked at had very poor interiors even though one of them was quite low mileage. I felt more comfortable with this UK spec model as I was more conform in the mileage and history of the car and the leather and burr walnut interior was in excellent condition.
After an 80 mile drive home and its in my garage. Its a very smooth Range Rover engine in basically a 1960s sports car. There’s a plush interior with plenty of 1990s tech but it still handles like and feels like an MGB …… which is great.

PS …… I’ve still got my MGB.
