RV8 in Nightfire Red or Oxford Blue is sought by a keen buyer!
Preferably a UK spec RV8 but a reimport would be considered. Mileage is not too much of an issue but condition and service history certainly is. The right car for me is the one which has been meticulously looked after and may be, just "stands out from the crowd" more than others! So, if you have such a lovely example that needs and will have a good new home then email or phone me. 131027 Vehicle now found and acquired by a new smiling RV8 owner

Private sale - UK spec RV8 on Old English White - SOLD Sep 2013
Old English White
(93L) is a UK specification model with c 25,500 recorded miles substantiated by service receipts and MOT certificates. It has had one previous owner. MG's published production records show that only 5 cars were built in this colour with only 3 being manufactured to UK specification and remaining in the country. The vehicle is therefore extremely rare. It is in very good overall condition and apart from a replacement windscreen surround, which was commissioned by the previous owner, and is virtually original. It has been garaged and has completed very few miles since it was last sold. This reflects the lack of time able to be devoted to using the car and therefore the reason for the sale. The vehicle also has a black Krafthaus hardtop. Taxed until 30th September 2013 and an MOT until late October 2013. Price £15,850. 130709

Beware of scam from an overseas V8 buyer!
Rick Morton (Woodcote Green 1300) has reported a scam which members who are selling a V8 need to note. Rick says "I just thought I would update you on my experience with trying to sell my RV8 recently before I withdrew it from sale. Both Jerry Winfield (Woodcote Green 1684) and I heard from the same person but I also had several other emails with roughly the same approach." How does the scam work? "This person, who is overseas, agrees to buy your car and will send you a cheque for more than the asking price to cover shipping costs etc. He then asks if you could bank the cheque and send the balance to his shipping agent via a money transfer. The cheque bounces but only after you have sent the cash to the shipping agent. This scam relies on your ignorance of how the cheque clearing system works. Problems arise because banks update their computers on day three of the clearing cycle. So if you check with them at that time, you may very well be told that the funds are available. It will only be on day four that the bank realises that there is a problem, and on day five that they tell you. Weekends and Bank Holidays all add to the delay. In my case the scam merchant was going to send me a cheque for £3,400 more than I was asking for the car. I was to subtract the cost of the car and send the remainder to his "shipping agent"." So members advertising here need to be alert to this scam and any approach from the scam merchant!
