VERY Rare mgf sp cheetah!!

This was the car i always wanted to own, its a stunning car and the chances of getting another proper cheetah are about the same as winning the lottery. i dont know exactly how many cheetahs were made but i only know of 3 including this one!!

I am selling this car, very reluctantly, as most people in the f/tf section of this forum already know!

The car currently is running a normal 1.8 vvc engine (its origional engine) with a performance manifold and the standard sp performance exhaust. the charger,pipes,charge cooler and bracket are missing, however i have spoken with pete bland @ turbo technics (who developed the cheetah with sp) and he assures me he has all the parts, it wont cost the world to complete, maybe 1500max to get it back to the standard 210bhp monster it formerly was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The car has just had a new headgasket and drives like a normal f should, although its probably pushing out more bhp due to the manifold and exhaust!

THE CAR:

1998/R MGF Cheetah in nightfire red

Its covered just 58k miles, its just had a full service, new belts ect along with the gasket change.

its had 3 previous owners

it has one off azev alloys exclusive to the cheetah

it also has the full bodykit, standard trim for the cheetah

the interior was re-trimmed by mike satur again this was a standard feature!

It has a matching hood

it also sports a very suitable private plate M6F SP

The car was featured on top gear and was driven by vicki butler henderson

the car was featured twice in mg world

I am having the car valued next week so in the meantime im open to offers, as soon as i have the figure, i will accept the highest offer closest to the quoted price.

Dont miss out on a very rare car, you will not have the chance again, i will never forgive myself for doing this, but with a baby and buying a house it must go.

I would imagine this car will be worth a lot of money in the near future, especially to a collector.

please email me your offer and/or questions nicklewis45@hotmail.com

surely its worth more than that... a normal 98 mgf would be worth around that much..

perhaps you could add a clause into the sale contract forbidding that sort of action accurring Nick

If it were 6 weeks from now I might have done. Unfortunately there's little point in having a garage filler when I haven't got a garage yet. Already got one car parked at someone else's house...!

Out of interest, Nick - where are you?

The car is at my dads place in oxford, i havent driven it at all but the hgf has been fixed, so im hoping to get at least one drive out of it before it goes. If an enthusiast is willing to buy it, i would hapily take a deposit and hold it for a month or something! Id prefer to do that than sell it to a chav tomorrow

If i did say that in the sale im sure it wouldnt stop them chavving it after i walk away

insurance is little or no different from a vvc version as its got no charger im 21 and insurance wasnt that bad at all, all the quote's i had were very reasonable

Oh and the wife will be able to drive it, if you let her ;-)

Sorry Nick - I can't justify the extra over a base VVC I'm afraid. Didn't realise initially that it was sans 'charger...

Shame though, as that bodykit looks schweet.

Mind you, I may find I have a little more money than I was expecting so may get something a bit different to what I was envisaging, anyway.

Best of luck with the sale, mate - hope it goes to someone who'll care for it and get it back to full power!

This car really is gorgeous... I remember seeing the Cheetah at SP Performance ( who were just up the road from me ) when I was learning to drive - no way i could afford it though and i ended up with a G plate 214 GSi!
I really wish this car was up for grabs after I get my profit sharing from work! - Good luck with the sale Nick - I hope it goes to a loving owner.
