The MG ZR was a hot hatch that was developed from the Rover 25 and was produced at Longbridge from 2001 – 2005 . It was MG Rover’s best selling car at the time. Considering that the Rover 25 was based on the Rover 200 and as such was already 6 years old, the car’s handling and general fun factor was a revelation. The car is a credit to the then MG Rover management who created something very special from a shoestring budget having famously bought the company from BMW in 2000 for just £10! The range-topping ZR 160 was fast too; going from 0-60mph in 7.4 seconds and capable of a top speed of 131 mph!
The car featured on this t-shirt is a MG ZR Mk1 and the design is such that the t-shirt colour makes up the colour of the car. It features a small iconic-ironic logo so you can help spread the word and it can even be personalised with your number plate if you wish.
