31 year old Metro - Yours for £120,000!<br />
<br />
The MG Metro was the butt of many a joke in the 1980s, but this hottest of hot hatches is set to sell for a record £120,000. <br />
<br />
The mass-produced motor was British Leyland's answer to the Ford Fiesta but was much-maligned and ridiculed by many.<br />
<br />
But this wolf in sheeps clothing shares little but its name with the standard model, with a whopping 3 litre V6 engine producing 400 hp catapulting the tiny car to 60mph in just 3.2 seconds and 100mph in 8.2 seconds.<br />
<br />
The 6R4 Rally car won a host of competions in the late 80's and the European rallycross championship in 1992.<br />
<br />
The MG Metro 6R4 will be sold at Bonhams' annual Goodwood Revival sale on September 10.
