2004 MG Rover ZT Turbo Has Just Three Miles On The Clock

Is the MG ZT a real, desirable classic? Strictly speaking, probably not, but it has just three miles on the odometer and that might work in its favor at the Classic Car Auctions’ September Sale.

According to its current owner, the car is exactly as it was when it left the factory, which could mean that we’re looking at the best conditioned MG Rover in the world, not to mention the one with the lowest mileage.

In fact, after purchasing it from a Derby-based dealer back in 2005, the owner immediately placed it in storage, first in a heated garage, then a “Carcoon” and later a Car Bag – all of which made sure the car was preserved as new over the years.

It’s painted in British Racing Green and still has its original ContiSport tires along with the very same fuel that was put into the gas tank approximately 11 years ago. The interior features half-leather seats, green alcantara door lining, air conditioning and a CD player.

“It’s amazing that our vendor has never used this car on the road and has cared for the car so much that it has been tucked away and only covered three miles,” said CCA general manager Guy Lees-Milne. “The time is now right to part with it and Classic Car Auctions are very proud to have been asked to help find it a new home.”

“This really is a special collector’s piece and certainly an amazing example of history from the last domestically owned mass-production car manufacturer.”
