Colin McRae’s Metro on eBay for £350,000
Ever wanted to get your hands on a piece of bona fide rally heritage? Well, here's your chance, and its not a cheap one at that. The MG Metro 6R4 loved and driven by rally king Colin McRae has surfaced on eBay, for a pricey sum of £350,000.
An extremely rare model in its own right, the MG Metro was used for course car duties during the 1998 Colin McRae stages. When it was retired from the rally, McRae purchased the car following his own WRC retirement.
Unfortunately, it later caught fire whilst he was working on it in his garage.
it has undergone a full restoration in the capable hands of engineering company 6R4 to tarmac rally specification.
Powered buy a 3.0-litre V6 international engine, the model produces in excess of 400bhp at 9250rpm.
