Sale price: £365,000.00 make an offer
Last update: 14.10.2016
Technical specifications, photos and description:
This is the original MG Metro 6R4 that Colin McRae bought on retirement from the WRC.
He used it for Course Car duties during the 1998 Colin McRae Stages.
He was featured on Motors TV and was the most watched 6R4 YouTube video of all time!!!
Very rarely can a 6R4 be seen driven in anger with such skill and control.
It is no suprise that Colin McRae was voted the 'Ultimate British Driver' by the readers of Motorsport News 2014.
Colin's stature and reputation make him known worldwide by a much broader audience than just Rally fans.
Japan and the US for example see him as some kind of Laura Croft and Indiana Jones figure
due to his Video Game success.
Once freed from works contracts. /span>
Colin purchased this car with his own money for the pure pleasure of owning and driving it.
After using it for Course car duties the car unfortunately caught fire whilst Colin was working on it in his garage.
