MG is plotting a small-scale return to the US market for the first time since the death of the MGB in 1980, with its exciting SV supercar.
Although coupé production will be limited to just 250 cars a year, MG Rover is confident it will be able to find buyers for an ‘ultra limited’ run of imported models – despite an expected price of at least $100k (£60k).
In Britain, the SV is being sold by a national network of 20 specialist MG Sport & Racing dealers, with prices from £75,000.
The SV faces an active competition career ahead of it: MGR hopes to enter the SV into several racing categories. The company’s ambition is to make a full GT challenge at Le Mans in 2005.
