1971 MGB V8 Roadster
This has to be the ultimate MGB and certainly the car that MG should have built in period. This car is based on a RHD 1971 MGB professionally re-built and upgraded in England in 2001 using a new heritage body to its current V8 specification. Since the full re-build the car has had one owner in England and its current danish owner who bought the car in England in 2009. The car is registered as a historic vehicle and has only ever been used in the dry as the condition attests. The mileage since the re-build is only 17000 miles.
