The MG SV-R was the pet project of the MG Rover senior management to create a halo model for the modern MG range. It was a complete departure from all previous model MGs with the only possible comparable model being the 1930's K3 Magnette.
The car we have for sale today is one of only 42 SV-Rs built and one of the very last to emerge from MG Sport and Racing. It was built for the Italian Motor Show in 2005 but never delivered as MG went into its infamous administration. It was stored until 2008 when it was purchased from the official receiver by the current owner and road registered in May of that year on an '08 plate. The interior is an attractive blend of royal black leather (including the dashboard), brushed aluminium and exposed carbon fibre, giving the tactile feel of a quality GT car. The body is finished in Mirror Silver Supertallic paint which contrasts well against the black leather Recaro seats with four point racing harnesses. The wheels are MG OZ 18" split rim racing alloys with stainless steel wheel embellishers, contrasting nicely with the red Brembo brake calipers and drilled and vented discs. Everything about the car is absolutely stunning. It has a full service history, has covered under 800 'dry' miles attending MG shows and is garaged under its fully fitted MG Racing soft cover which is included in the sale, together with numerous MG items such as SV-R collector's DVD; Hardback book; MG Jacket; tee shirt; key ring, etc. - all brand new.
This represents a fantastic opportunity for the serious collector to acquire as close to a 'brand new' SV-R that you are ever likely to be able to purchase, surely an investment oportunity waiting to happen?
