Finally got another ZR 160

Hi everyone not been here in a while, i used to have the Black and Orange MK2 ZR 160 that i used for trackdays.....

The reason i haven't been on much is because i removed all the running gear, suspension etc from the ZR and sold the shell and began to build an earlier (1993) Rover R8 200 as fancied something a bit different and wanted independent adjustable rear suspension.....

Anyway on the my new ZR

At long last finally got another ZR. Been on look out for the right car since getting rid of my other 160 over a year ago but they seem to be getting hard to find now. So ive treated myself to a MK2 160 in FireFrost Red, 70k, almost full history, no rust or ripped leather. Pleased to say had a 2.5 hour drive home and everything went perfect so fingers crossed made a good choice, other than a sport exhaust its all as it left the factory all tho i think it may have map as it seems really happy to pull through the gears and is more responsive on the throttle than the others ive had (all tho the MG/Rover garage i got it from said they been looking after it for about 5 years and its only had routine maintenance from the female owner). Not got any plans to mess about with it apart from maybe a set of Avo springs and refurb the wheels just going to use it for few shows and when weather is good.

Here are a few pictures for now.....
