    Default #57 for Sale

    Dear All

    It it with great regret that I have decided its time to move on from 260 ownership and offer my car for sale to another enthusiast

    Location: Leeds/York

    MG ZT 260, DV54 GZM (#57)

    Left the Longbridge assembly line at 09:22 on
    17th October 2003

    She was first registered on 30th October 2004.

    Only 20 ZT 260s (8 non-SEs, and 12 SEs) were finished in Trophy Blue (paint code JFV), and GZM is the 3rd of the batch to be built (preceded by #13 a LHD development car, and #50, the first production ZT in that colour)

    She is the 57th MG ZT 260 out of a production run of 883 cars (including ZT 260s and Rover 75 V8s, saloons and tourers, and both standard and SE spec vehicles). Only the 17th non-SE car produced, and the 2nd Trophy Blue V8 sold direct to the public (the first 26 cars being development vehicles)

    Updates and Improvements carried out by owners -

    • Complete rear sub-frame and drive train assembly, including new LSD, brake disks (AP Racing) and pads (EBC Red Stuff) all powder coated before reassembly.
    • Vehicle Handling Solutions Ltd handling kit fitted, along with LSD dampers. (This kit was 1100 +VAT + fitting when done).
    • BBK Throttle Body and K&N Air Filter.
    • Uprated 'Blaster' Coils fitted.
    • Black Olive Heater Valve and uprated hose fitted.
    • Considerable amount of work carried out at MG Rover specialists - Austin Garages, including new clutch & front struts fitted in 2018.
    • Grooved EBC top-spec front discs and EBC Red stuff pads fitted.
    • Genuine Xenon Headlights retro-fitted.
    • Reverse Sensors fitted.
    • Highline Trip Computer fitted.
    • Auto-dipping rear-view mirror and rain sensing wipers.
    • Sony DAB radio.
    • Genuine XPower Exhaust Rear Sections.
    • New radiator.
    • New air-conditioning condenser and compressor.
    • New cooling fan motor and control assembly.
    • NGK Iridium spark plugs. (uprated option)
    • Replaced o/s rear drive-shaft oil seal and Refilled with correct Lodexol LSD oil with correct friction modifier.
    • Replaced N/S & O/S lower arm bushes with uprated polyurethane components.
    • Replaced N/S & O/S front suspension arms with genuine parts.
    • Replaced front Drop-links.
    • Replaced front brake-pipe sections, as originals corroded (done in Cunnifer).
    • Re-seated exhaust heat shields and reinforced mounting points.
    • 4x Apex alloy wheels with 225/45/18 Avon ZZ5s tyres (full size spare refurbished also, with matching tyre). Wheels finished in Shadow Chrome.
    • Reproduction Monogram interior with Royal Blue painted dashboard, central console and gear lever surround, and electrically adjustable and heated (front) Blue Alcantara seats and door cards.
    • Rear electric windows fitted.
    • Handbrake compensator.
    • Powerfolding door mirrors fitted.
    • Custom Mustang dials, blue LEDs on all switches, and blue footwell lights.


    Mileage is currently on 119,260 miles (will increase slightly as being enjoyed a little more before she moves to a new owner)

    Shes not perfect, but she is the best (and most fun) car I have ever owned

    A lot has been spent on the interior and equipment spec.

    Asking price is 10,500 (genuine enthusiasts only please)
















    Please contact me to discuss further

    At the foot of post #1 in this thread, Andrew has stated his email and telephone number.
    Probably better to use that or PM I think, rather than open forum, Gaz?
