HMC MK IV 3.9 V8
The HMC Mark IV is a superlative, hand-built reproduction of an Austin Healey vintage car, and combines modern finishing and performance with an elegant exterior and timeless look that evoke the best of premier British motoring.
The two seater Mark IV boasts a 3.9 litre V8 engine which outputs a generous throaty roar up to a maximum of 5,500 revs per minute. With a top speed of 140 mph and a gutsy 0-60 mph time of 6.1 seconds, the Mark IV may not compete with the modern supercar in terms of bottom line performance, but where it does score is in its exquisite finishes and details. Wilton carpets add a luxury touch that is nicely complemented by a fitted mohair roof. Enamelled wheels, chrome bumpers, period mirrors and delightful curves complete a stunning visual appeal, while the car handles beautifully thanks to independent suspension and power steering.
The HMC Mark IV is a show-stopper on the road, and its driving experience is terrific; the ride feels smooth and untroubled, and the car handles very much in a classic manner, with unhurried controls and smooth running. There’s little doubt that as a reproduction of a vintage period of motoring goes, few experiences come more highly recommended than driving the HMC Mark IV with the top down!
