The best looking of all Maestro variants, in my opinion. GLWTS.

I would love it, but ... no time, money and I've run out of hiding places. I have a clubman I haven't been near for two years.

I think you should buy my p38. Easy fix for you.

I remember going to see one of these in about 1995 and this is mint in comparison. Love the colour. Hope it finds a good home.

If this was down south there would be another £1000 on the price, I think that's excellent value and it wouldn't take a awful lot to sort those paint issues out. Almost tempted myself and I can't stand Maestros!

Lol. I’m not a massive fan either but I like the mg ones.

I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

Yeah the MG ones are the only ones to have, I spent 4 years after leaving school at a body shop and our bread and butter work was local garages who seemed to stock pile these in the late 90s, there wasn't a week go by were I wasn't repairing sills or rear arches on them and it's left a haunting memory forever! That said as the years go by I do fancy a MG Montego more and more.

Best hot hatch of the 80's.

 

If it wasn't for the cars I already have, lack of space, my wife- I'd buy it.

 

Friend had a brand new early 1600 twin Webber version-went very well-same colour as well-so always had a soft spot.

Ahh. The torque steer..... Tyres scrabbling for grip due to the powah... The dashboard .....
Wonderful memories.

 

If you thought that had bad torque steer, try the turbo version  :shock:

A mate of mine who was a car thief back in the late '90s really rates these as not just easy to steal but quicker than a mk4 XR3i and mk2 Golf GTi 8v.


The fucking scum bag.

Have him buy it, then hopefully someone nicks it!

Safe now. Everything's lead lined.

One of my favourite ever rides was the Turbo version........... I love these. A mate had a VDP auto and it was a stonker too - unfortunately I was 23 at the time and drove it like I stole it everywhere. My mate was a mechanical fucktard and killed it through negligence. Mine was put through a garden wall and into a house in Norwich by an 'associate' sadly.

 

This is a beaut!

 

I'm chocka on projects ongoing and shite incoming so I'm shackled for taking this too fella - deepest regrets. I'd love to be doing a 800mile+ OMGSNOKAOS KOLLEKSHUN for it if I could tho!

 

Someone keep it in the fold for later roffle/purchase shenanigens pretty pretty please.............

The box for Isopon P38 still features a silver Maestro. That says it all for me.

Really rare machine now one of these. In about 2004 I saw an ad for a 1.6 MG Maestro. Wasn't dear at the time, wish I'd bought it now.
