The GS was the top of the line Metro, launched in 1990 at just under £11,000. It features metallic British racing green paintwork, beige Connolly leather interior and walnut dash and door trims. The engine is the same non-catalyst 1.4-litre Rover K-series as fitted to the GTa so it’s very peppy.

This Metro was purchased in February 1991 for £10,600 (original bill of sale included), power steering was fitted (cost £1,500 plus VAT) the following year, and it was serviced every year by The Forge Garage, Oxford. The vendor is just the third owner (4th registered) in 30 years – the second owner re-registered the vehicle in his wife’s name and it stayed in the family for many years. All previous MOTs confirm the mileage which is 46,500.
The car has electric windows, tilting sunroof and CD player. It is also one of just 11 GS Metros left on the road.

Auctioneers Notes: What a starter classic, she is a beauty. The interior is up to Vanden Plas standards, all leather and walnut and picnic tables and these little cars are quick for their time having 76 BHP on tap which, incidentally, is equal to the iconic sixties 1275 Cooper S. May be viewed by appointment
