See our membership and MGV8 registrations review for 2016. More

In 2018 we have the 40th Anniversary of the formation of the V8 Register in 1978 and the 45th Anniversary of the launch of the MGBGTV8 in 1973. There is also the 25th Anniversaries of the announcement and launch of the RV8 in 1992 and 1993 in 2017 and 2018. Details of the events will be released in the New Year so overseas members will be able to plan any visits.

This review reports we have 3,881 registered members with MGV8s in the UK, Mainland Europe and overseas and our database has information on 4,581 MGV8s - Costello MGBV8s, Factory MGBGTV8s, MGBGTV8 Conversions, V8 Roadster Conversions and RV8s. The report is illustrated with charts showing where our members and the MGV8s are in the UK, Mainland Europe and overseas.

Almost three quarters (74%) of our registered members are in the UK with 9% in Australia and New Zealand, 3% in Germany, 2% in the Netherlands, 2% in Switzerland and 2% in the USA. The distribution of MGV8s recorded on the V8 Database has 60% in the UK and 17% in Japan. The number in Japan is reducing but there is still a substantial number of Japan-spec RV8s there.
