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,
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.

6R4.com have recently completed a full bare metal, ground up restoration and the car is now in Tarmac Specification.
3.0L V64V 400+BHP 9250rpm International Engine
Motec ECU Conversion, Coil on Plug, Twin Wide Band Lambda and datalogging
International Dog Box and tarmac spec 25:75 step off.
LSD diffs Front and Rear
International Power Steering & Works Quick Rack
Works Carbon / Honeycomb lamp pod assembly
Carbon / Kevlar guards and radiator cowl
Works 16" Dymag Tarmac wheels and Avon tyres.


A genuine 6R4 that is also road registered and having excellent provenance.

This car has been part of Doctor Rowlance's private collection for many years.
It has the original V5 document verifying Colin Steele McRae as a previous owner.

All photographs are from the May 2016 Cars & Coffee meeting at the Chung Ku in Liverpool.
Arguably the star of the show (organiser words not ours) amongst some real exoctica !!

It's next public appearance will be Headlining the Group B Static Display at the
World Rallycross Meeting at Lydden Hill on 28th/29th May 2016.

A real crowd puller and we are now looking for the next custodian of this significant car.
Very rarely does an opportunity come available to buy a celebrity car
with real provenance and performance!!
