SUMMARY

A real rarity amongst 1980s hot hatches, this post-facelift Turbo shows just over 47,000 miles and benefits from a fresh coat of White Diamond.

DESCRIPTION

  • The Metro Turbo was the essence of small car cool in the early 1980s but are now as rare as the proverbial hens' teeth
  • The formula was simple - take a lightweight, three-door hatch with the proven 1,275cc A-Series and add a turbo
  • Featuring a Garrett T3 turbo, the engine was developed by Lotus Engineering, increasing power from 70bhp to 93bhp with a decent increase in torque and performance 
  • Purchased by our vendor in 2020, this Mk2 Turbo is believed to have been restored by a previous owner
  • Resprayed last year by a Jaguar Specialist in its original White Diamond (NMN), it sits on silver 13" cross-spoke alloys
  • Smart interior in Grey Velour with red piping, MG motif, contrasting red seat belts and red carpets throughout
  • Supplied with its original hand books, some invoices and previous tax discs
