The early pre-production development MGBGTV8 (Glacier White 0096) which was up for auction at the Silverstone Classic Sale on Saturday 26th July 2014 is reported to have been sold for £9,315 - see the result published on the Silverstone Auctions website alongside. The estimate in the auction particulars was £10,000 to £14,000.

The auction was held in the Wing at Silverstone Circuit. We understand that Mario Kloostra's son attended the auction and that he reports the hammer price was £8,100 to which was added a 12.5% premium (£1,012.50) with 20% VAT (£202.50) on the premium.

The car was previously owned by Clive Wagerfield and was featured in the wonderful MG90 Timeline 2014 display at Silverstone in June 2014 - see the information sheet from that display.

Our updated MGBGTV8 price guide released earlier this year has a tax exempt chrome bumpered MGBGTV8 at £15,250 (Condition 1) and £8,700 (Condition 2). A premium for the early pre-production development status of this car had been expected by many observers.
