Quentin Willson says "to drive it is to love it"
Rover Cars gives Top Gear an exclusive opportunity to test drive the new MG RV8 - a
two minute review by Quentin Willson
Quentin Willson gives his view on driving a pre-production prototype MG RV8 in 1992 during an exclusive test drive and says "the name of MG is alive and well in the form of a new MG RV8 with it's grunty 3.9 litre fuel injected V8 and a 5 speed gearbox. Make no mistake about it this is a real MG, the best ever. A proper, proper sportscar to stiffen the sinews and summon up the blood. To drive it is to love it". As he calmly changes up from third to fourth with the magical rising sound of a purposeful engine, he adds "it's a disarming car, very quick with knife sharp acceleration, yet a refined interior and smooth riding but it still oozes that period charm that made the old MGB one of the best selling sportscars in the World. No, the new MG RV8 is a real burster!"

"But will it sell - well Rover seems to think so and they have taken so far over 100 deposits". See the video
