Supplied new by MG Rover Main Dealers, The Priory Motor Group on the 3rd August 2004, the car was initially registered to them as a dealership demonstrator before being sold to the first private keeper Mrs Rosemary Pearson. The Used Car Vehicle invoice within the history file confirms all the details of when the car was sold by The Priory Motor Group at nine months old. In 2011 MG Owners Club member, Mrs Maureen Wylie, became the second and only other keeper. Used as a dry weather weekend car by both custodians and kept garaged, this pampered example has covered an incredibly low 16,470 miles from new and is preserved in amazing order.

A neatly organised history file contains all supporting service invoices and previous MOT certificates to further validate the genuine low mileage and fastidious upkeep. There are two original keys on matching yellow MG leather key fobs. The dealer branded key fobs are also included. An original MG TF brochure completes the impressive history file. A dedicated enthusiast club scene, coupled with excellent parts supply network and easy maintenance, make good examples a sheer joy to own. This pristine MG TF offers the complete package of a preserved, low mileage, low owner, well maintained and superb performing example, fast becoming a hugely desirable modern classic. It even comes with matching yellow sunglasses!
