The MG ZT is a high-performance version of the Rover 75 executive car, produced by MG at their Longbridge site in Birmingham. They also manufactured estate versions of the vehicle, referred to as the MG ZT-T. Styling is similar to the 75, although uprated springs and chassis modifications make for a far firmer ride. Production of the cars ceased in 2005 amidst financial turmoil at MG Rover.

This 12-Year-Old British Sedan Is Arguably the Lowest-Mileage Car You Can Buy

When it comes to miles on the clock, this MG ZT is newer than your brand-new car...

It’s not uncommon for automobile auction events to trade low-mileage cars, both vintage/classic or of more recent production, but this year’s Classic Car Auctions sale at the Warwickshire Exhibition Center will probably go down in history for selling the lowest-mileage used vehicle. The car in question is a 2004-model-year MG ZT that has only three miles on the clock after its owner placed it into storage as soon as he bought it 11 years ago.

Making the story that much more interesting is the fact that the MG ZT is by no means a valuable collectible. Introduced in 2001 as a development of the Rover 75, the ZT was produced only until 2005, when MG Rover went bankrupt and was purchased by Nanjing Automobile of China. Offered in both sedan and wagon body styles, it was the company’s then-largest model and was sold with a selection of four-cylinder engines, a V-6, a BMW-sourced diesel, and a V-8 borrowed from the Ford Mustang.

The current owner purchased the car in 2005 from a dealer that was selling the ZF at half price and it was delivered to his farm just outside the Silverstone race track with only one mile on the odometer. After driving for just two miles along the driveway, he decided to put it into storage, keeping it in a heated garage, in a Carcoon and later in a Car Bag for all these years. Preserved beautifully and with only three miles on the clock, the owner believes that this is the best condition and lowest mileage MG Rover in the world.

I think that it could actually be lowest used car in the world of any marques, but there’s no simple way of proving it.

Classic Car Auctions estimated that the sedan will fetch between £8,500 and £10,500 (about $11,300 to $13,950) when it goes under the hammer on September 24, 2016. Needless to say, that’s not a lot for a car with just three miles on the odo, but a decent amount given that the car itself is far from being a collectible.
