An MG estate that achieved a top speed of 225.6 mph at Bonneville in August 2003 – a record that it still stands to this day – is currently for sale with JD Classics in Chelmsford.

The 2003 MG ZT-T X-15, powered by an 800bhp 6.0-litre V8 Roush performance engine mated to a NASCAR five-speed race transmission that redlines at 9500rpm, recently starred at the MG Centenary event at the British Motor Museum – and now it could be yours.

The MG was originally designed by Peter Stevens (designer of the McLaren F1 and later lead designer at both Lamborghini and Williams) and MG built it with a blank cheque in association with the So-Cal Speed Shop of California.

Its one aim was to be the first estate car to break the 200mph barrier. It became ‘The World’s Fastest Estate Car’ with Bonneville veteran Pat Kinne behind the wheel and its record still stands 20 years later.

JD Classics’ events and sales lead, Julia Roberts, said: ‘It’s not often that we get a car in to sell from the British Motor Museum and this is still officially the fastest of its kind in the world. It’s an amazing car with an incredible history.’

Offers over £250k are invited.
