Remarkable V8 Roadster
Many V8 enthusiasts occasionally muse over the specification for their ideal V8 Roadster Conversion and just occasionally details of an exceptional car come to light. Well recently Geoff Broad posted an advertisement for his V8 Roadster Conversion on our popular "MGV8s for Sale" webpage in February 2003 and by any standards it is a well built car with a mouthwatering specification!


Tahiti Blue 4182 (GHN5-460051G) is a beautiful V8 Roadster Conversion with a mouthwatering specification beneath an understated exterior!

This remarkable V8 Roadster Conversion was built by MG Motorsport and was blasted and painted in Rover pearlescent Tahiti Blue. It has an all black interior and is fully carpeted, including the boot, and has new leather reclining seats and headrests.

Front suspension is modified MGB with stiffer springs and new dampers, negative camber wishbone arms, ¾" anti-roll bar, and Superflex polyurethane suspension bushes. The rear suspension has lowered springs, new lever arms dampers and Superflex bushes. Brakes are uprated standard MGB with Mintex 1144 V8 pads with the standard in-line servo set up.

The engine is a completely rebuilt Rover 3.9 litre V8 with a Real Steel Viper camshaft, steel timing gears and chain, new oil pump, original equipment water pump, new flywheel with a high performance clutch, electric choke Holley 390 carburettor with an Offenhauser twin plane manifold, and a Valeo geared starter motor. The gearbox is a close ratio Cosworth Borg Warner T5, driving a Quaife torque sensing differential via a heavy duty propshaft.

The wheels are Minator Minilite replicas size 5.5 inch by 15 shod with 185/55 x 15 Yokohama performance tyres.
