Was Clarkson right about the MG SV having a 1000bhp Nitrous Oxide kit?


Do you remember MG's supercar from 2004, called the MG SV? Well Mike Fernie has managed to get his hands on one, and looks to dispel the myth that was once uttered on Top Gear via Jeremy Clarkson. Did this brute of a car actually come with a 1000bhp Nitrous Oxide kit? Let's find out...

    Rover and mg should have been saved but england is sold out and comprimised by china and the eu, england doesnt make or export much anymore or even buy its own products, even councils, emergency services ,breakdown companies etc all lease german vehicle fleets rather than put money back into the uk motor trade, there is zero demand for british cars other than millionaires buying rollsroyces.

    I see people posting that it looks like: a Chrysler or a Vauxhall Monaro. To me the back is a Audi TT and the front is a disaster. I used to own an MG and was patriotic to the brand. . It is now a Chinese owned brand and making great EVs that look like Mazdas.... go figure.

    1000bhp, was MG not buying the engines from Fords with an output of 400bhp and downgrading them to 250bhp? Or was that just in the MG ZT?

    Engine in the ZT was a 2v 4.6 Ford Modular V8. Output in the Mustang of the time was 240hp and was 'tuned' by Roush to produce 260hp. The engine was replaced about a year after it came out by the Ford Coyote V8 which was a development of it and much more powerful.
