The MG Metro was unlike the beige, boxy and bland Austin Metros of the same era, instead inspiring the creation of the frantic rear-engined 6R4 Group B rally car that competed in touring car and rallycross events for years.
Lotus Engineering Race Technology took the bare bones of the Austin and made it into a feisty hot hatchback for the road, the 1275cc engine was tuned to produce a then impressive 72bhp.
It’s a fascinating part of British Leyland history which, with hindsight, probably played the pivotal role in morphing the Metro from a 1.1-litre shopping car into Leyland’s most successful competition car ever.
All MG Metro’s featured powerful servo assisted brakes with four-pot calipers and ventilated discs up front, stiffer suspension, and a bulbous body kit comprising front and rear spoilers and wheel arch extensions all round.
This particular MG Metro is only a 1 owner car.
According to the DVLA Database, there are less than 200 left in the country !!
