The MG ZS 180 is a sports saloon car built by MG Rover between 2001 and 2005 and was the flagship vehicle produced at Rover’s Longbridge factory. Being developed from the Rover 45 but just as the Rover was a luxury saloon, the MG was produced as a sporting saloon and was leaning heavily on the Honda heritage at the time by utilising the double wishbone front suspension, fully independent multi-link rear suspension and uprated springs and shock absorbers giving the MG a lower, firmer ride with better handling. The braking system was improved with larger disc brakes front and rear as well as ABS and EBS assistance. The ZS 180 was fitted with 2.5 litre V6 24 valve four cam engine producing 175 BHP giving an official top speed of 139 MPH with 0-60 in 7.3 seconds. Visually the 180 has a deep front bumper with a bib spoiler and built-in fog lights with lower side sills, a large rear wing was offered as an option but 17” sports alloy wheels with 205 tyres came as standard.
This example is presented in silver with a black and blue interior and comes with two sets of keys, the owner’s handbook and has only had three owners from new, the present owner having owned it since 2004. The car’s history file contains invoices for recent work such as new cambelt, water pump, thermostat, front coil springs and top mounts. The wheels have been refurbished and it comes with a current MoT test certificate which expires 27th October 2021.
