Talking V-8-powered MG ZT 260

http://www.mgbv8.org/mg_zt_260_v8.htm

It uses a Ford 4.6 V-8 with 260 hp. They should use the new 2005 Ford Mustang GT's 4.6 V-8 which has 300 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. The new Mustang GT's V-8 has an aluminum block which helps shed 75 pounds compared to last year's iron block V-8.

MG Confirms Return to the DTM Race Series Fri, Feb 25th 2005


MG, a name synonymous with motor sport is to make a welcome return to the DTM in 2005. The season kicks off on April 17 at Hockenheim, Germany.
Taking on the might of Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Opel, MG starts a new and exciting chapter in its illustrious sporting history.

"Racing against prestigious brands in DTM is an exciting way to raise the MG profile," said Rod Ramsay, managing director, sales & marketing, MG Rover. "We see the young audience that the series attracts as key to the growth of the marque across Europe."

David Sharples, director, MG Sport and Racing added: "DTM is a race series the public really connects with. It is a perfect opportunity for MG to showcase the racing qualities of its V8 muscle car, the ZT 260. We are delighted to be working with Oxfordshire based automotive technology specialists Zytek and are confident we will make a real impact in our first season."

The fast, furious and highly competitive series attracts top names such as ex Formula One drivers Mika Hakkinen, Jean Alesi, Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Allan McNish. Close racing, spectacular overtaking and tight championship battles will be seen by viewers in 175 countries, as well as attracting record numbers of trackside spectators. The 11 race series visits seven circuits in Europe, as well as Istanbul and for the first time, Brno in the Czech Republic.

Hockenheim will mark the return to a series in which great success was enjoyed in 1986. Driver Kurt Thiim won the championship amassing 130 points and collected three wins along the way. This time out, powered by V8 4.0 litre engines developing 500 bhp, the MG-Zytek team will race two MG ZTs.

More details concerning sponsors and driver line-up will be announced over the coming weeks.
