How do MGBGTV8 prices compare with the Datsun 240Z?

One of the competitively priced sportscars in the market when the MGBGTV8 model was launched in August 1973 was the Datsun 240Z. It was an attractive car in a GT package like the V8. But how are prices of Condition 1 cars comparing today? A "Classic Risers" feature in a recent issue of Classic Car Weekly had the Datsun 240Z as the car being reviewed. Here we compare how prices of MGBGTV8s and Datsun 240Zs have moved since 2010. We have also added the RV8 (Condition 1 in Other Colours) to the chart for interest. More

Comment: this chart illustrates what exceptional relative value a Condition 1 RV8 is now with improved rust protection and a modern electronic engine management system plus Elm Burr trim and soft leather seats.
