1986 MG Metro Review
Wonderful Piece Of Kit! Does What It Says On The Box And Some! — acceleration and breaks amazing 0-60 under four seconds, running costs in competition is said to be £150.00 per mile.A real handfull but very rewarding!The car is not forgiving in any way , the hardest thing to get used to is the way it stops. The whole thing is very agricultural, noisy but above all rewarding as it is still competitive against modern rall cars!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Cons: Runnuning costs
