We currently still have it... for a spare toy for now till we sell it.

 

"lots of money"  if you class the same amount as a full set of F-Type tyres  :tt: ...  Its had lots of love & time spent on it

 

Also... its a MGTF160-Cup-a-like  rallly

Seems a shame that you sold it. You were raving about it for a couple of years, seems odd to have made it good and then not keep it and use it lots.

It was a great little car, it was built very well for sure. The new owner drove it and the smile on his face then buying it straight away made his day.. plus we enjoyed it on track & road many many times over our ownership. New project is underway.. should be collecting all my refurbished parts in next few weeks.
