This MGB GT V8 is something very special!
In the period from 1973 to 1976 was built for only three years the MGB GT V8 with the famous 3.5 l engine from Rover. Initially with chrome bumpers and then from 1975 as a so-called rubber boat. A total of 2591 cars were built, only 735 of them as rubber boat, of which only about 150 are left nowadays.
This particular MGB GT V8 with the registration number URX741N in the color Blaze was built at the end of 1974 already with the specification for 1975, equipped with sunroof. After production, the car served as a test vehicle for the MG Special Development Division. MGB used the car to test various components such as brakes, springs, tires, wheels and much more to optimize the GT V8. A vehicle diary was created documenting each test drive. This diary is still available today and was maintained meticulously until 1984. Even after that, the history of each year is traceable through numerous reports and invoices. Before 15,000 miles, the complete engine and transmission were overhauled. The complete documentation must be seen!
The car has always been in the hands of absolute MG enthusiasts. This is a perfect driving machine that impressively proves what the GT V8 was capable of and not a "show queen". The car carries its age in dignity with appropriate patina which in my opinion should be preserved in any case. We have deliberately not changed anything on the outside of the car or had it done, because this should be up to the new owner to decide.
Definitely URX741 is a unique contemporary witness for the real MG enthusiast.
The car can be viewed at any time by appointment with us in the showroom and is looking forward to the opportunity to meet its new owner.
With us you have the possibility to get your old- or youngtimer in combination with a special and completely market-new warranty. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
In highest regards, your C.O.G. Classics team
