I’VE bowed to pressure on the forum by whipping up to the workshop this afternoon and loosing off a couple of pictures of the prototype MG Maestro Turbo. As you can see, this Moonraker Blue example looks absolutely stock, apart from the roof spoiler – and there’s not even a hint of badging to give the game away. In fact, as I earlier asserted, I’m wondering if this is, in fact, the world’s best street sleeper?
Well, probably not, but there’s no doubting that this fine car has masses of Q-appeal – as the drivers of one or two repmobiles found out on my journey down from Scunthorpe on its way to the MoT test centre.
A full project – and report will follow in due course. And for all those going to Peterborough this weekend, you’ll get to see the beastie first hand, with some of the documentation that makes this car so damned intriguing…
