Technically it's a Krafthaus; kit wouldn't be cheap now let alone 9 years ago.

29,000 miles and 9 owners thats not a lot of miles per driver.

I assume then it is 129,000 miles. Also listed as a 2000 cc

hi there , just to let you know i am new to the forum and i actually brought the car mentioned....
laugh you might but reason i brought it was because it wasn't a car with a cheetah kit but the actual original mgf cheetah....
if you check the cover of mg world mag no 4 april/may 1998 you will see what i mean...
granted it has lost the azev alloys and supercharger but still sounds awsome....
i also own another cheetah which is featured in the other mg world mags in nightfire red....sad i hear you say but i have plans to have the superchargers put back on .....watch this space.....

See they changed the original green & yellow clocks, the woodeffect centre console and put the standard half leather seats in. Must of been the wear and tear of 29000 miles

I looked at this car a few years back with the view of returning back to its as new state..

It was in a dreadfull state then and needed circa 10k spent on it to bring it back to its forma glory..

Assuming it is one of the originals I think its the one that V.B-H's butt sat in

Heres some info on the original spec
