The first MG to appear after the closure of Abingdon in 1980 was a return to the badge-engineering ways of old. In becoming an MG in 1981, the Austin Metro received a trim upgrade package, and an uprated A-series engine delivering an additional 12bhp. Just over a year later, the Metro Turbo was added to the MG line-up and became a big seller in the GTi market. Featuring a Garrett T3 turbo, the engine was worked on by Lotus to develop 93bhp. It could have been more, but power was capped to prolong gearbox life. Most have now succumbed to rust.
