Additional Information
HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by MG Rover main dealer, Lockwood and Greenwood of Manchester, on the 16th May 2003, this example has had just two keepers from new and covered a verified 15,076 miles. The new vehicle order form in the history file is made out to Mrs WS Fairhurst who having been an existing MG Rover customer was awarded an exclusive £1,500 loyalty voucher. However, this was gifted just after she had placed the order for this example and agreed part exchange for her year 2000 MGF. Armed with her generous voucher, Mrs Fairhurst contacted the dealership who agreed that the voucher deadline could be extended to cover the delivery date of her car and to, as per her words in the letter, recover some of the value of the optional extras totalling £1,671 for the customised TF she had ordered! Correspondence in the file includes a further letter of complaint to MG Rover headquarters at Longbridge whereby upon preparing for delivery of her new car, it transpired the voucher had already been used to discount the car and there would be no further reduction. The outcome of the complaint remains a mystery!

The original handbook and service book with eight stamped entries are present in the plastic MG wallet and a further history folder contains invoices and every MOT since the first in 2006 to verify the 15,076 miles covered. A service has just been carried out in January 2021 and the cambelt and water pump change was undertaken in 2018 at 13,140 miles. Finally, there are two original keys with fobs and dealer keyrings as well as the exclusive Monogram Special Order program brochure. A quality indoor car cover is also included. Facts on the exact numbers of MG TF’s in Spectre Chromactive are subject to slight variation, all below 30. What is certain is that this incredibly rare example with just two owners and 15,076 miles is firmly in serious collector territory.
