MV Design Nimber - Chronology
The Nimber was an sucessfull attempt on the small fun car market. It’s simple design and ease to produce made it a very sucessful model. Unfortunally, bad administration made the model go from one manufacture to another at least 4 times during the “classic” era of the model, ranging from 1962 to 1999. The legendary “Lamp” inline four was released at a puny 975 cc on the first nimbers, receiving longer conrods and crankshafts, going all the way to 1400 cc on the last classic models, and receiving a redesign with a modern head for another 20+ years of production, with 1700 cc on the current Nimber.
1962 release model. 975 cc and classic looks.
1972 1111 cc model, with simple design changes.
1982 1300 model, with a revised appearance outside our studio, good receiving at the time, but obviously didn’t got older as good as the other models. Common classic conversion target.
1992 1400 EFI model. Received a redesign inspired by the lassic ones, but the engine now had some electronic wizardy mandatory at the time.
2002 New Nimber. A new car, but keeping the spirit of the old one alive. The engine was the revised “Lamp”, with a new head, and 1600 cc
2012 Newer Nimber. Yes, they had the guts to release a car with this name. Now with a 1700 cc, this model is the current produced one. A new generation is speculated to be released in 2022.
