1 of 1 - the only Roush Supercharged Shot Silk ZT in the world.
2005 (05 reg) MG ZT 400 4.6 V8 SE Roush Supercharged Saloon Facelift MK2 finished in Monogram Shot Silk
As a performance modification the original engine was removed at circa 46k miles, and a complete new engine and gearbox installed. The new engine is the 4.6 litre V8 pre-fitted from the factory with a Roush Supercharger, larger throttle body etc.
The Traction Control has been permanently disabled (a recommended mod for any supercharged 260 to avoid killing the fuel pump)...
Usual SE spec including:
Full black leather interior
Fully Electric Seats with optional Drivers Memory
18in MG Apex Alloys
Multi Function Steering Wheel
Electric Windows and Mirrors
Remote Central Locking
Dual Zone Climate Control
Xenon Headlights and power washers
PDC - Park Distance Control
Alarm and Immobiliser
This car also has the optional power pack too:
• Power Rear Sunblind (optional)
• Power Fold Mirrors (optional)
• Harmon Kardon amp (optional)
The engine is a Roush Stage 03 Factory supercharged engine with uprated gearbox - so is not an aftermarket bolt-on installation.
The result is a ferocious turn of pace and the gear changes are a lot smoother than the standard 260.
The condition of the paintwork is generally very good for a 2005 car, albeit the lacquer on the roof panel has begun to blister and will require a re-spray.
The car suffered from the usual ZT leaks, so the interior carpets were removed a few months back to dry-out and remain to be fitted.
The car is fitted with X-Power exhausts which sound incredible, albeit these are from a ZTT which is why they protrude further - hence the car's nickname.... 'the wheelbarrow'!
The car is now on its original plate (VO05 BYY)
Car on SORN now as I'm not using it; shame to see it doing nothing. Full MOT just done. Recent expenditure on a/c compressor, a/c condenser, thermostat kit, radiator, front lower arms, lower engine.....
