Mini Clubman is a guilty pleasure so it was considered, as well as this interesting Octavia vRS, one of just two petrol models for sale. And the Legacy Spec B proffered a leftfield hot Subaru alternative also.
Plenty of choices then, but we've settled on a car familiar to PH: an MG ZT-T V8, the exact car that featured in Estates of Play in 2011. The Mustang-engined estate was always in contention, but to have such a unique car available meant we had to run with it.
Chris's (aka Kermit Power's) ZT-T V8 is reputedly the only car made in Biomorphic Green too, so it really is one of a kind. Furthermore, having been built for MG Rover Product Director Rob Oldacre, BX03TYY comes with nearly every option including xenon headlights, a stereo upgrade and heated leather/Alcantara seats.
The entire advert, all 1,512 (!) words of it, could easily make a feature by itself, detailing the ups and downs of seven years' ownership with this enigmatic car. This ZT-T has been enjoyed but cherished, with high-quality parts used throughout Chris's ownership.
drove this very one in 2011.
The mandatory stuff like the MOT (June 2014) and tax (October) are in place for the next owner, and it's nearly half the price of this low-mileage ZT-T. Finally, after struggling to justify an eccentric V8 yesterday, there's now a reason to own and enjoy a V8; the Lib Dems want combustion engines banned. So go wild, supercharge the thing, and enjoy a fantastic V8 estate whilst it's still possible.
