This rubber bumper MGBGTV8 in the rare colour Sandglow was advertised
by Thornfalcon Classics in Taunton on 7th February 2020 as "exceptional"
and with only 71,000 miles at £19,995. It was subsequently
marked as SOLD. It was then seen advertised by a trader on 30th
April 2020 and again in the advert in Classic Car Buyer this
week where it's on offer at £24,995 which is a
hefty £5,000 or 25% uplift. The car looks in very
good condition and Sandglow is a very rare Factory colour,
only 8 were built in this colour at the MG Plant.

Our Pricewatch volunteer, Keith Belcher, recalls this reimported
RV8 with a very low mileage and aircon was sold at Brightwell's
auction on 24th June 2018 for a surprisingly low £18,700.
It's now advertised in Classic Car Buyer this week with a dealer,
probably in the Bedfordshire area, at £24,995 which
is a hefty £6,295 or 34% increase. Guide
Our Pricewatch price guide released in May 2020 indicates RV8
Condition 1 prices have drifted up by around £645 or 3.25%
since May 2018 to £20,445.
Our Pricewatch guide price for a Condition 1 Plus RV8 is around
£23,500 with "Exceptional" RV8s at £26,450
so the advertised price is between the two. Guide
