Re­view: H&H Dux­ford

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

With more than three quar­ters of the RV8’s orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion run go­ing to Ja­pan, the home mar­ket cars are rare, and have a loyal fol­low­ing among MG devo­tees. This one-owner ex­am­ple was al­ways go­ing to do well, not just on ac­count of its sound con­di­tion through­out and the amount of his­tory that came with it but also the fact it had cov­ered just 3220 miles from new, mak­ing this vir­tu­ally a show­room-fresh ex­am­ple. The clos­est prece­dent for this was the £26k pulled in by a 2040-mile auc­tion last year, which was re­flected in H&H’s £20-25k es­ti­mate, but it ended be­ing ham­mered away for nearly dou­ble its lower es­ti­mate. It’s proof that the mar­ket is still happy to pay record sums for the right cars.
