Introducing… The RBW MGB Roadster

The RBW MGB Roadster was inspired by Managing Director Peter Swain’s first car when he was aged just 17 years – an MGB. A personal favourite of Peter’s, the original car was released in 1962 and further styled by Pininfarina. Over 500,000 were made and it was so popular worldwide that nine out of ten were exported overseas. This is a true British Classic and a motoring icon.

Therefore, the first of the electric designs is the RBW MGB Roadster, which affords all the stylings of the 60s, yet, re-imagined, preserving this iconic design for the future classic motorist.

Prices start from £105,000  | Deposit 5%

Driver comfort

To ensure drivers comfortable driving and complete safety, rather than taking an old body shell with distressed and tired metal, RBW has partnered with British Motor Heritage to provide brand new body shells. 

Peter explains: “In our research and development, we put the cars through vigorous testing which showed just how much pressure is on the body as well as the components. Such is the power of the engine, we used new components wherever possible to ensure the best for owners to enjoy from their classic electric sports car.

Handmade, British craftsmanship

As with all cars, the design evolves over the years and improves. The RBW recreation has had the body de-seemed, with modern lighting, electric windows, central locking, and air-conditioning added for the driver’s comfort. 

An LCD instrument panel sits within the dashboard of the British hand-built leather cockpit bringing together modern technology with classical style. 

The limited-edition hand-built models, are in continual development with the first cars being delivered summer 2019.
