*One of only 42 SV-Rs built

*Present ownership since 2011


The SV story began with MG/Rover's acquisition of the Italian-based Qvale Automotive, manufacturer of the Qvale Mangusta. Already homologated for the US market, the Mangusta must have seemed an ideal starting point for MG's new supercar. Styled by renowned designer Peter Stevens, the SV used carbon fibre body panels, which were manufactured in the UK and then shipped to Italy for fitting to the box-frame chassis. Completed cars were then transported to the MG Rover factory at Longbridge for final trimming and finishing. Power was supplied by a Ford V8 engine producing 320bhp, while there was also a more powerful (385bhp) SV-R version capable of 175mph. Sadly, the SV had arrived too late to help rescue MG, and when the factory closed its gates in 2005 only 82 cars plus four 'XP' pre-production prototypes had been made.
One of only 42 SV-Rs built, and one of the very last to leave the factory, this example was intended for the Italian Motor Show but never delivered as MG had gone into administration. Notable features include black leather Recaro seats with four-point racing harnesses; OZ 18" split-rim alloy wheels with stainless steel embellishers; and red Brembo brake callipers gripping drilled and vented discs. The car was stored until 2008 when it was purchased from the official receiver and registered on an '08' plate. When the current vendor purchased the MG at a UK auction in November 2011, it had covered only some 800 miles from new. Accompanying documentation consists of copies of the purchase invoice and catalogue description.
This rare and desirable SV-R has been on static display for a number of years and as such will require recommissioning prior to road use. Please also note this Lot is subject to UK import tax if it is to remain in the UK.
