October 2012 – 2003 MG ZT260
This car used to belong to Richard Monk, the General Manager of the MGOC and a good friend of mine. He bought it as an ex demonstrator and so we have history from day one.
It is very different to drive compared to the MG RV8 I have but they have two sounds in common; the wonderful burble from the engines and the sound of the petrol gauge on its swift way towards empty!
