1979 MGB, with Rover 3.5L V8 (owner: Mark Trosper)
British V8 Photo Galleries
Our Newest Addition: Classic British Race Cars!
We're pleased to announce a the debut of our new sister site: www.BritishRaceCar.com!
British Race Car is uniquely focused. It presents classic British race cars in greater technical detail than you'll find elsewhere. Like BritishV8, British Race Car is about design and construction, and especially about how cars have been modified for performance. Historical notes are included for context, but you won't find articles about the lifestyles of car collectors or about what was "well bought" at auction because British Race Car is focused on cars.
Enjoy British race cars in splendid color, up close and in sharp focus, at www.BritishRaceCar.com
Engine Swaps (a.k.a. "conversions", "transplants", "swops", etc.)
Our huge engine swap gallery is sorted by MAKE, then MODEL, then OWNER'S NAME. The six main sections are:
Factory Built V8-Powered British Sports Cars
BritishV8 is also working to document the history and design of factory-produced
V8-powered British sports cars. We already have
The Internet's Biggest
Library of Info on MG's "MGB GT V8" Model, and we're planning to
similarly present other production V8 models going forward.
