The MGF is a small two-seater sports car which was styled by Rover's in-house design team, and boasts a mid-engined rear-drive layout. It is a 100% British design. Brilliant handling and firecracker performance. This is one British sports car that deserves to hold its value. Variable valve technology releases 145bhp plenty for even the most ardent open-topped enthusiast to play with. This means 0 to 60 in 7 seconds and 130mph for the 1.8 VVC.
