The MG XPower SV will star alongside stars Rick Yune and Simon Webbe in the new $10m action adventure movie Run.
The MG XPower SV is a race-bred V8 powered supercar, built from light-weight composites, and available in two versions – the SV (320hp 4.6-litre V8) and the SV-R (385hp 5.0-litre V8). The cars can accelerate from standstill to 60mph in less than 5 seconds, with a top speed circa 175mph.
Each SV is built to order, with prices for the SV starting at £65,750, and the SV-R at £82,950. Order books are already full for the next six months.
Filming on Run will commence in July, and is directed by Andy Morahan (Highlander III: The Sorcerer, Tales From the Crypt). Rick Yune (The Fast and the Furious, Die Another Day) heads the cast in the lead role of Harry “Mac” McKenna, an American bounty hunter who hits the streets of modern urban England searching for the truth only to find a non-stop nitrous-injected world, a beautiful but mysterious woman and more truth than he ever bargained for. Joining Yune is Simon Webbe of pop band Blue in the role of “Ringa”.
Run will shoot for 10 weeks in the UK and Russia and is budgeted at $10million.
