Description

Registration Number: TBA Chassis Number: TBA
The X80 was originally revealed as a concept car in 2001. However, the styling was considered too sedate. When the production model, now renamed MG X Power SV, was eventually launched the following year, designer Peter Stevens had made the car‘s styling more aggressive. The conversion from a clay model to a production car, including all requirements, was done in just 300 days by the Swedish company Caran. One goal was to get a street price of under £100,000. The car‘s baseline model eventually cost £75,000 with the uprated X Power SV-R model costing £82,000.
In April 2008, William Riley, a member of the famous Riley Motor dynasty relaunched the vehicle under the name MG X Power WR. Mr Riley has bought the badge rights for the MG X Power from the administrators of MG, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and has launched MG Sports and Racing Europe Ltd, a £2 million venture that has already created 17 jobs, employing a selection of ex-MG Rover
