Hardly used Metro 6R4 to go under the hammer at Autosport show
A 1985 MG Metro 6R4 rally car, which has covered just 175 miles, will be offered for auction at Autosport International at the NEC, Birmingham on January 12.
The effectively unused car has spent much of its life at the Conference Centre and Grand Prix Collection at Williams Grand Prix Engineering and is expected to sell for between £180,000 and £200,000. When the 6R4 project was abandoned after Group B rally cars were banned at the end of 1986, unused 6R4s were sold off for as little as £13,000.
As one of the 200 cars built, chassis 6R4-111 was purchased by the marketing department of Williams Grand Prix Engineering in 1988. It remained at Williams until 2005 before being purchased by The Tifosi Garage, and then sold to the current owner in 2015.
It has recently been recommissioned by BGM Sport.
