An MG Rover ZT 1.8 Turbo which has been hibernating for the last 16 years and described as “exactly as it left the Longbridge factory” with only six miles from new, will go under the auctioneer’s gavel in December 2020.

Forget those doom and gloom merchants, the MG Rover ZT is, without doubt, an underrated ride that delivers lots of bang for your not so expensive buck.

Dressed in British Racing Green, its also aesthetically pleasing on the eye with sumptuous lines and although based on the softer and more ‘wafty’ Rover 75, the sports MG ZT handles itself with ease around even the tightest of corners.

This particular car has been dry stored in a heated garage and within a chamber since its short 6-mile journey from the infamous Longbridge Plant, where it left 16 years previously.

Powered by Rover’s own petrol K-Series 1.8 T 160 unit, this five-speed manual must surely be the best example of the MG ZT on the planet and will go to the Classic Car Auction online sale 12 December 2020 with an estimate of £12,000 – £15,000.
