In essence, this is the real replacement to the Big Healey even though it came three decades too late. Using the logical and lusty Rover V8 albeit tuned to almost 200bhp fitted into a revamped and more racey looking BMH Roadster bodyshell, the MGR was the MGB V8 it always should have been, although some prefer the earlier bespoke Costello conversions from the 1970s. Despite its cheapskate suspension damping, the RV8 is the best driving MGB of them all yet this modern classic also makes a good, civilised tourer thanks to a traditional wood and leather cockpit. Best of all, prices are only slightly above normal MGB values but this will change we feel so buy now if this modern antique appeals.
