The MG F was launched in the autumn of 1995 by the Rover Group, making it the third all-new car to be launched in its first full year since the BMW takeover. It was powered by a 1.8 litre, K-Series 16-valve engine, the basic having 118bhp, while the more powerful VVC (variable valve control) had 143bhp. Rover Special Projects oversaw the development of the F's design and before finalising the styling, brought in third-party contractors to determine the most appropriate mechanical configuration for the new car. The MG F quickly shot to the top of the affordable sports car charts in Britain and remained there until the introduction of the MG TF in 2002.
Originally registered on 15th August, 1997 this MG F drives well and has benefitted from having a new modified head gasket to eliminate any overheating issues. Finished in metallic red with magnolia leather trim piped in red, this MG F is described as being fun and sporty to drive and supplied with a V5 registration document, a current MoT test certificate, the original service books and a number of invoices/receipts.
