The MG XPower SV (Sport Veloce) was an aggresivley styled sports car which was produced by MG Rover from 2003 - 2005, although the final cars were not sold until 2008.

The MG XPower SV was built in Modena, Italy in a factory
leased by MG Rover and at Rover's facility in Longbridge, UK. The car was based on the Qvale Mangusta platform due to the fact MG Rover had aquired Qvale Automotive.

The MG XPower SV was first unveiled as a concept in 2001. However, the styling of the production car was made considerably more aggressive and featured several additional air intakes, including the prominent slats positioned behind the front wheels.

The MG XPower SV consisted of carbon fibre bodypanels which cover a box section spaceframe chassis. The base MG XPower SV was powered by a 320 bhp (239 kW) 4.6 L Ford Modular V8. The manual version of the car had a top speed of 165 mph (266 km/h) and a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time of 5.3 seconds.

In April 2008, William Riley relaunched the MG XPower SV under the name MG XPower WR. Riley bought the badge rights for the MG XPower from the administrators of MG and launched MG Sports and Racing Europe Ltd. This new company can produce 6 cars a month.
