The MCV DD103 is a low-floor double-decker bus body built by MCV Bus and Coach built on the Volvo B9TL chassis. Most of them are built as open top variants instead of closed top buses.

The MCV DD103 was launched in May 2011.[1] One was trialled in London by Docklands Buses and London United.[2]

Golden Tours of London ordered nine in 2012, with six being open-top variants.[3] A further 11 were delivered in 2014, all but one being open-top variants.[4][5] Others are operated by Wessex Bus.
