Produced by British Leyland and latterly the Rover Group between 1984 and 1995, the Montego started life as a four-door hatchback. The high-performance MG version was offered using a 2.0 litre engine and used the solid-state instrument cluster, trip computer, and synthesised voice for the information and warning systems. Essentially a Maestro with a boot, a total of 34,476 2.0i cars were produced with a further 7,276 Turbo’s, survivors now being very scarce.
This rare MG Montego EFi has the 1994cc fuel injected straight-four engine and manual five-speed gearbox. Finished in complementary white with grey cloth interior, the EFi has only covered an incredibly low 31,402 miles from new. First registered in May 1989, the condition of the car is remarkable and must be seen to be believed. Not only is the condition of the car incredibly good and the mileage very low, the car also boasts being supplied with all of its original booklets and guides, as well as servicing invoices from its life. The vendor describes the car as outstanding and a pleasure to drive with everything working as you would hope.
Supplied with a UK V5C registration document, all of its booklets, (including its fully stamped service booklet), old invoices and spare key. Perhaps not your obvious classic, but an important part of British automotive history and in a condition second to none, this is a rare opportunity to own a time warp condition example.
