Always a head turner at the events..

Hampton Court -
Concours of Elegance 2022.

The MG SV Club were again invited to display a range of cars at the prestigious Hampton Court Concours of Elegance on Sunday 4th September 2022 with the gathering of 12 SV/SV-Rs.This will be the third consecutive year the club has been in attendance and the multicoloured SV's were sure to provide much interest from the general public and car enthusiasts.

That number represents a significant number of the known 87 or so existing SV/SV-Rs and SV-Ss. You can see many pictures on the MG SV Club Facebook page…

The weather gods smiled on the event again, and the MG SV club assumed the same position as in 2021 down near the Thames. Although a little distance away from some of the eclectic Concours entries and other multi-million pound exotica, the owners were able to welcome many curious visitors. Many arrived with a knowing smile and engaged in extensive discussion with the various owners who were enjoying their picnics on the lawns. A common statement uttered was “I’ve heard of the SV, but I’ve never seen one in the flesh”.

Most visitors left more informed and more effusive over the SV/SV-Rs.
We all think the great thing about the SV/SV-R is that it is totally classless. One day we can mix with the high and mighty of the classic motoring world sipping their champagne and the next day we can turn up at an MG ‘noggin and natter’ and have a pie and pint.
