Good day!
Some spare time and some searching on the internet resulted in the following statistics on Dutch registered MG RV8s.
As a source, the official Dutch licensing register was used.
As at 26th December, 2012:
58 RV8s are registered in the Netherlands, of which 19 were originally delivered by Rover Nederland – the first one on 18th July 1994, the last one on 5th August 1996.
Therefore, 39 cars have been imported from either the UK, Japan or other countries.
4 cars are still remaining with the first registered owner.
The first RV8 to be imported was on 11th July 1995, the last one on 20th September 2012, the only import in 2012.
The oldest RV8 was registered on 1st June 1993, the youngest on 8th December 1996 (date of first registration anywhere in the world).
Information on colours is limited to blue/green/red etc., without the name of the colour. 36 green, 20 blue, 1 red and 1 black – totalling 58.
8 have expired MOTs, of which 3 are reported not to be insured. One other car is not insured on top of these 3.
Regretfully, chassis numbers are not available in the open source information.
Trust you will find these statistics of interest.
Best wishes for 2013.
Kind regards,
Peter van Ginkel
