The car’s rights were acquired last year by William Riley, a former member of the Riley Motor dynasty, and he is continuing to develop the MG X-Power SV.

The 5.0-litre, 380bhp model offered for sale by Barons is the Lightweight model, intended for motorsport and track day use.

The car was registered as new last month, and it has a guide price of £26,000-£30,000, considerably less than the usual list price of around £70,000.
