23 January 2003 - 80th Anniversary Edition
TF21.jpgThe iconic MG sports car brand is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2004 with specially produced Limited Edition cars. Derived from the UK’s best-selling sports car, the TF 80th Anniversary LE has a unique specification and limited production, of which only 500 will be made available for the UK market.

A debut for the limited edition MG car was held this week at the Retail Trust’s ‘Hollywood Ball’ at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane. The charity auction conducted by fashion celebrity Jeff Banks saw the bid reach a total of £275,000.

Three 80th Anniversary TF LEs are available with colour co-ordinated hood and trim combinations, and features that include unique identity detailing, with a choice of 135, 120 Stepspeed (CVT transmission) or 160 power units.

Rod Ramsay, Sales Operations Director, MG Rover Group, says: "It’s appropriate that we celebrate 80 years of MG production with a special TF 80th Anniversary LE - the product most closely representing the icon that is the archetypal MG sports car. If a charity auction can raise £275,000 for one of the LEs, then the remaining 499 represent great value!"

Three versions of the 80th Anniversary LE are available – in new Pearl Black, Starlight Silver or the new Goodwood Green. Each 80th Anniversary LE can be specified with the 135, 120 Stepspeed (CVT transmission) or 160 power units.

The Silver and Black anniversary TFs have a contemporary appearance featuring a new Burgundy Red coloured hood. The interior is trimmed combining an Ash grey interior with Grenadine Alcantara® and black leather seats. Embroidered with ‘1924 MG 2004’ logos on the seats, the interior also features a bright-finish console, door casings, gear knob and handbrake grip.

The new Goodwood Green, a pearlescent aquamarine paint finish, Anniversary TF is more traditional in style, combining a new tan hood with a matching tan interior. Black Alcantara® and tan leather seats are also embroidered with ‘1924 MG 2004’ logos. Wood effect inserts are fitted to the console, on the doors and complement the wooden gearknob and leather steering wheel.

All 80th Anniversary LE models feature as standard a folding windstop and CD tuner. Externally 16" 11-spoke alloy wheels featuring a new ‘shadow chrome finish’ combine with front fog lamps and bright door handles to create a special appearance. Anniversary ‘1924 MG 2004’ bootlid badging distinguishes the 80th Anniversary LE at the rear.

TF Sprint LE

MG cars are responding to the demands of the summer’s open top motoring season with a new, high specification MG TF SE Sprint. Designed to appeal to MG customers who want the combination of high specification, attractive pricing and an element of exclusivity – the MG TF Sprint is expected to be a popular fast selling model.

The MG TF Sprint is derived from the popular MG TF 135 and MG TF 160 with enhanced features that include: Gunsmoke Alcantara and black leather seats, Smokestone interior colourway on the fascia and door panels, a coloured hood, chrome pack, front fog lights and on the TF 135 models the Sports Pack 2 (ABS, uprated 304mm front disc brakes and callipers and 16" eleven-spoke alloy wheels – already standard on the TF 160). The overall package provides a combination of sports, styling and comfort features.

The popularity of the MG sports car continues in the new MG TF. Launched in January 2002 following the successful MGF, the TF has already won the hearts of many owners with nearly 4,000 sold in the UK to date.

With an on-the-road price of £18,495, the MG TF 135 Sprint represents £2,375 worth of options for the additional £1,250 of pricing, over the standard TF 135. The more powerful MG TF 160 Sprint at £20,495 represents £1,275 worth of options for £500 of additional pricing over the TF 160. Only 600 MG TF Sprint models will be produced in five colour combinations.
