The 1992 MG RV8 was an attempt to re-create a classic as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the first MGB. The bodywork looked distinctly MG, but with rounded edges, blended-in fenders and lights, which echoed all the original I ouches. In fact, the doors and trunk lid were identical to the old car's, as was the underneath. Still there was the front wishbone suspension and live axle suspension on leaf springs, but with Koni telescopic shocks. What brought the car -dive was its 244ci (4-liter) V8 engine, taken from the Range Rover but being a development of the old Buick all-aluminium V8. The unit gave excellent torque at low rpm but couldn't keep up with other British sportscars from the likes of TVR or Marcos. Inside the RV8, again it looked familiar, but the theme was luxury with a full walnut-veneer dashboard and leather seats/panels.
