MG TF 135 80th Anniversary - SOLD
We are delighted to be able to offer this stunning low mileage, limited edition, MG TF 135 80th Anniversary finished in Pearl black with Ash Grey and grenadine trim.
The iconic MG sports car brand celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2004 with specially produced Limited Edition cars. Derived from the UK's best-selling sports car, the TF 80th Anniversary LE had a unique specification and limited production, of which only 500 were made available for the UK market.
A debut for the limited edition MG car was even held at the Retail Trust's 'Hollywood Ball' at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane where a charity auction conducted by fashion celebrity Jeff Banks saw the bid reach a total of £275,000.
The 80th Anniversary TF LEs were available with colour co-ordinated hood and trim combinations, and features that include unique identity detailing, with a choice of 135, 120 Stepspeed (CVT transmission) or 160 power units.
This example has had just three owners, the first being Slough Motor Company who pre-registered it and then two family members who used it sparingly, hence the very low mileage which is backed up by a full service history and MoT's.
We have fully refurbished the car to make it what must be one of the best examples available anywhere.
Having just gone through a full cosmetic refurbishment, the bodywork and paintwork are in sparkling condition, the pearlescent black paint really suits the car.
Having known the car for a couple of years, we have history back to 2018 when we carried out a full cylinder head refurbishment, new head gasket, belts and fitted stainless steel coolant rails. The service history is remarkable and despite the low mileage, the car was serviced on time every year when it was MoT'd. As you would expect for such a pampered car, it drives superbly with positive gearchanges and a peppy engine - it's a delight!
Unique to the 80th Anniversary models from new, we have recently expertly fitted a new hood, in the correct colour, to match the exemplary presentation of the rest of the car. We have also had all four wheels professionally refurbished and then the car has had a four wheel alignment check. Hence, the car now presents beautifully.
Again unique to the 80th Anniversary models, we have two tone Ash grey and grenadine seats with an 80th Anniversary logo embroidered into each seat. Feeling surprisingly modern, the interior is in great condition benefitting from remote central locking, power steering, airbag etc.
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.
The K-Series engine can have an issue with its head gasket. Here at Beech Hill Garage every vehicle we change a cylinder head gasket on is fitted with one of our own "reconditioned" cylinder heads. Each unit is crack tested, pressure tested and face skimmed. By doing this we know we are fitting a good unit to your car. We use the latest evolution of gasket. This is a genuine MG Rover multi layered steel (MLS) gasket and stainless steel dowels. No other gasket will do.
