MG ZT XPower Update

   

MG ZT XPOWER UPDATE

Since it was reveiled at Frankfurt last year, we’ve been putting the MG ZT XPower through a series of uncompromising and rigorour tests.

It’s been submitted to the mind-numbing cold of Scandinavian winter and the blistering heat of an Australian summer. Then came the ultimate challenge for its supercharged 4.6litre, V8 which can produce 385Ps – Nuburgring, Europe’s fastest racetrack.

Its 143 tortuous turns and demanding high-speed straights made it the perfect environment to evaluate the performance and handling credentials of the MG ZT XPower.

Here it bulleted to 0-60 in less than 5 seconds; topped 100mph in under 10 and scorched to an awesome top speed of 175mph. And the "Ring" also represented the toughest trial yet for the car’s front-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration and it’s taught chassis, which together guarantee authentic, high performance sports car handling.

The MG ZT XPower passed all its tests with flying colours. But MG’s gifted engineer Rod Oldaker (voted "Engineer of the Year 2002" by Autocar) is a hard man to satisfy. Now he and MG design director, peter Stevens, along with their exceptional team, are taking the MG ZT XPower to the USA for further environmental tests and styling refinements.

It won’t be long now before you can experience the sheer power of its advanaced technology on the road that was previously confined to the racetrack. The MG ZT XPower is due to be launched in Autumn 2002.


PUBLICITY FLYER FROM MG

Dear Mr Flint

Thankyou for your interest in the MG ZT XPower, a car that we believe is set to take the sports saloon sector by storm.

Since it was reveiled at Frankfurt last year, we’ve been putting the MG ZT XPower through a series of uncompromising and rigorour tests.

It’s been submitted to the mind-numbing cold of Scandinavian winter and the blistering heat of an Australian summer. Then came the ultimate challenge for its supercharged 4.6litre, V8 which can produce 385Ps – Nuburgring, Europe’s fastest racetrack.

We’ll be writing to you again with progress reports on the MG ZT XPower in the near future.
