Do you remember MG's supercar from 2004, called the MG SV? Well Mike Fernie has managed to get his hands on one, and looks to dispel the myth that was once uttered on Top Gear via Jeremy Clarkson. Did this brute of a car actually come with a 1000bhp Nitrous Oxide kit? Let's find out...

  • As an American - can confirm there are TONS of 1000hp mustangs with the modular 4.6L V8. Not with stock internals, but there absolutely are 4 figure power levels from the 4.6 and 5.0L versions of this engine. New cams, valves, pistons, rods, and upgraded cooling and oiling system can get you well over 1000hp with a stock engine block. And nitrous. There's guys with over 700hp without nitrous.

  • An epilepsy warning should be mandatory for a video like this, especially given that it's a professional channel. For the sake of humanity, please put a warning in the title and put timestamps in the description so people can avoid seizures.
