Following the successful re-introduction of the MG name to the sports car market by means of the limited-edition MG-RV8, the Rover-owned company returned to mass production with the MGF. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1995, the MGF was inspired by the EX-E concept car of the mid-1980s and, like its illustrious MGB forebear, would prove to be an outstanding sales success. A mid-engined two-seater powered by a 1.8-litre, Rover K-Series 16-valve engine, the MGF incorporated the latest automotive technology in the form of electronic speed-sensitive power steering, side-impact door protection, driver's air-bag, catalytic converter and state-of-the-art alarm/immobiliser system. Handling and performance were of a standard expected from an octagon-badged sports car, the base-model 1.8i being capable of reaching 60mph in 8.5 seconds and a top speed of 120mph. In 2002 an extensively revised version the TF was introduced, named after the final MG Midget model of the 1950s. The most significant mechanical change was the adoption of conventional coil-sprung suspension in place of the original Hydragas system, while the engine was tweaked for increased power and the bodyshell stiffened. A comprehensive re-style included alterations to the front grille, headlights, bumpers, side air intakes and rear boot. UK production ended in 2005 when the Rover Group collapsed. In 2007 manufacture was restarted in China by the Nanjing Automobile Group, which had bought the rights to the design. Assembly also recommenced at Longbridge, where around 900 TFs had been completed by March 20011 when production finally ceased. This MG TF has had only two former owners and comes with full MG service history. Described as in generally good/very good condition and running well, 'WU53 VXL' has covered only 58,000 miles from new and was last serviced at 51,000 miles by Epsom Motor Services. Finished in British Racing Green with beige/black half-leather interior, the car comes with two sets of keys and is offered with current MoT and Swansea V5C document. An ideal car for summer motoring.
