Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Like so many ’80s hot hatch­backs, the sight of any MG Metro – and the Turbo ver­sion in par­tic­u­lar – is rare. Sil­ver­stone’s car goes much fur­ther, how­ever, hav­ing cov­ered only 7317 miles from new and been with its orig­i­nal owner for 30 years. The auc­tion­eer spells out how the orig­i­nal buyer spec­i­fied colour-coded body­work, which in­volved re­paint­ing the lower half of the body, wiper arms, mir­rors and grille. Such was its gen­eral con­di­tion that it col­lected some first prize con­cours cups be­fore be­ing pro­fes­sion­ally stored. With full ser­vice his­tory, this is a su­per-rare find.
