The SRV8 was designed in the 1980s and was considered one of the very best replicas ever, the same is true today. The protection afforded by the footwells and rear side impact bars makes it not only safe but very stiff which is essential for good handling and roadholding. Since acquiring the project Madgwick Cars has made a few improvements to the design to make it even more of a pleasure to drive. A unique feature of this car is the option of power steering making it user friendly to everyone.
