MG SV rivals

Written by Parkers on

The SV is a brute of a car. It resembles an Aston Martin that got in with the wrong crowd and its muscle-bound form stalks roads and race tracks looking for a rumble. It sports plenty of race car fittings including carbon-fibre bodywork to help it look and feel the part, and it’s able to give a pretty good account of itself in a head-to-head with most other sportscars.

Not a car for the shy and retiring.
