With a strong following as a modern classic, the MG Fs and TFs featured a mid-mounted 1.6-litre or 1.8-litre engine and arguably handle better than the highly regarded Mazda MX5. The second-generation MG TF changed from the earlier car’s complex Hydragas suspension, in favour of coil springs. With the MkII's launch came a revised grille and headlights. Production was suspended in April 2005, when MG Rover collapsed but not before 39,249 MkII MG TFs were built (from 2002 onwards). A great value British classic.

One of just 600 ‘Cool Blue’ 2003 special editions, it offered the motorist some refreshing features for the MG TF. Unique was the blue Alcantara and leather seats, a blue hood, and the well-known 16 inch 6-spoke alloy wheels. Paintwork options included Anthracite, Pearlescent Trophy Blue, or Starlight Silver. Other distinguishing features were the bright mesh kit, a wind-stop, fog lights at the front, leather steering wheel, Alcantara and leather interior, and alloy gearknob. 16v 1.6 and 1.8 engines were available, this TF is the 1.8 135bhp version. With just 53,260 miles from new (atoc), 'AK03 VFC' was supplied new via MG/Rover dealer Victor Wood of Oakham Ltd and is offered with the original stamped service book displaying eighteen, along with V5C.
