A real rarity and something of a sleeper among the 80s hot hatches. The MG Metro Turbo has been long over looked but with 80s hot hatches rising exponentially in value, these cars are bound to follow suit, especially when you consider that there are only 27 left on the road according to the 'How Many Are Left' website. This particular example is in need of restoration having resided in a garage for the last 26 years or so. It was taken off the road in 1991 when the owner could no longer afford the huge insurance premium you had to pay for these cars and has only come to light with the garage due for demolition. The car has just 38,860 miles on the clock which appears genuine given that the last MOT in 1991 shows 36024 miles. We believe the car has been in the same family since new.

The interior of the car is very clean indeed and reflects the low mileage. The body will need work in places, but overall appears to have survived quite well as you can see from the pictures. The car has not been started and it will be down to the new owner to recommission the car and carry out the restoration work needed to get the car back on the road. This is certainly a very worthwhile project given the rarity factor and at the asking price there is plenty of room to invest and add value to the car. With a 0-60 time of under 10 seconds and a top speed of 110 mph this car will provide lots of fun to its new owner when done.
