2003 MG ZT 4.6 V8 260 SE MK1 - British Racing Green For Sale
For sale is my immaculate MG ZT 260 SE in British Racing Green. The car has covered 43,000 miles since it was first registered by Caffyns MG Rover, Worthing on the 24/12/2003. I purchased the vehicle in February 2016 with just over 37,000 miles and have cherished the car since. it has been to various MG Rover shows up and down the country and has won various awards for show and shine, best in class and a best in show at ZED15 in 2016. The car was also included in a feature with Practical Classics magazine in 2018 on the Z Cars. The vehicle has been dry stored in my ownership and by previous owners, never being used over the winter months and only used on dry sunny days! I will also supply a fully tailored BRG car cover (with mirror pockets) made by Classic Additions Ltd. There is no corrosion to the body, underside or sills (all four jacking pads still in place) and has to be seen to believe the condition! The BRG paint is immaculate with no swirling and has been polished/sealed every six months since purchase. There are a few small stone chips to the bumper and a couple on the bonnet (Original factory paint) but have been touched in. Most of the paint appears to be a factory finish and has been confirmed by a body shop. The only area’s that aren’t are both rear quarters, rear bumper trim (known for peeling due to MGR painting over chrome affect plastic) and front slam panel; which have been done in my ownership to remove imperfections and keep the car looking immaculate. The alloys are 18 inch MG MK1 ‘Straights’ and are in immaculate condition with no curbing. Being an SE model it has a range of options fitted. These include, Leather faced electrically adjusted, heated, memory seats (Pre-project drive quality leather and treated with Gliptone leather care every 6 months) Sat nav (Albeit a bit old, but still usable), Harmon Kardon sound system, Xenon lights with washers, reversing sensors and fully electric sunroof.
