We are delighted be offer for sale what must be one of the rarest MG Rover products ever built. The 38th out of 125 cars, this exceptional example has covered an extremely low mileage of under 25,000 miles. As you would expect, the car drives exceptionally well with the ability to cruise effortlessly but with a surprising amount of urge should the mood take you. Previously sold by ourselves in 2014, the car has been cherished and is a credit to its former owners.

A rare car in any condition, this example is definitely a keeper and is only for sale due to the ill health of the current owner.

For sale on behalf of the owner.


Virtually unmarked, the bodywork presents very well and is in one of the best colours for a 75, emphasising the clean lines of the saloon shape.


With an impeccable service history, the car has clearly been looked after throughout its life. All of the recent service history is with ourselves and we know the car very well. With such an unstressed engine, particularly in automatic form, the car is quiet, comfortable but rapid if needed.


The exterior of the car is presented in fine condition with no noticeable marks, the bumper corners are clean and unscuffed, all light lenses are undamaged. Usefully, the car is fitted with rear parking sensors. The alloys wheels are shod with quality tyres that have plenty of tread, the alloy wheels are undamaged.


In excellent condition throughout, with a most attractive colour combination of black leather with smoke piping, the car has climate control, heated seats and a top of the range Alpine infotainment system fitted.


Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.
