The MG RV8 is a concept created by Ernesto Rodriguez - an Art Center College of Design graduate - as a new vehicle for the Chinese owned MG brand.
The objective of the project was to restore MG as a genuine British icon. The challenge was of course, how to accomplish that when the company is now Chinese. Rodriquez's clever solution was to split the manufacturing into two separate steps. Firstly the basic structure of the car, a "body in white" is built in China.
