Buying Guide

Good

  • Just 2000 reincarnated MGBs built in Heritage bodyshells with 3.9 litre Buick derived alloy block V8s from the Range Rover.
  • Would do 135mph, but more a car for nostalgia buffs than keen drivers.
  • Sold well in Japan until the economy there took a downturn, at which point many returned to Britain.
  • Lots of wood and leather.

Bad

  • Not an Aston Martin.

Watch

  • Be very careful to check the history.
  • Many went to RHD Far East countries then returned when the Tiger Economies went into recession.
