...MG ZT V8... 2005..

I fucking LOVE IT! By far the best car I have owned for a long time.. 4.6 V8 from a Mustang along with the Tremec 5 speed, matted to a TVR rear diff on what is basically a 5 series floor pan.. GRIN, GRIN, GRIN, GRIN!

Just did 40 in fuel over 120 miles and a pair of rear tyres
