MG Metro 6R4 - Pure Sound [HD]
Subscribe if you liked the video :D
Created for the short lived Group B race category, the 4WD mid engined MG
6R4 (6-cylinder, rally car, four-wheel-drive) Metro of 1984 was a world
away from the best selling supermini to which it bore only a superficial
cosmetic resemblance. The competition car effectively only shared the name
of the production Metro as it featured a mid-mounted engine with four wheel
drive transmission enclosed within a seam-welded tubular chassis. The
development of this vehicle had been entrusted to Williams Grand Prix
The resulting car was shown to the world in May 1985. It was powered by a
David Wood designed bespoke 3-litre V6 powerplant which used some of the
engine architecture of the Cosworth DFV. It featured twin overhead
camshafts and four valves per cylinder. The engine was a break from the
norm, as it wasn't turbocharged as the
majority of its competitors were. The engine was mounted back to front in
the car, with the forward end of the engine facing the hatchback and the
gearbox attached conventionally behind it and, therefore, in the middle of
the vehicle. The four-wheel-drive was permanently engaged, and drove
separate propshafts to the front and rear differentials. The rear
differential was mounted on the side of the engine sump with one driveshaft
running through the sump to the nearside rear wheel. Much of the outer
bodywork was made of GRP, with the only exception being the roof panels
(which were aluminium) and the steel doors. These were, however, concealed
by plastic airboxes. Indeed, models now on show generally have stickers
demonstrating where it is safe to push from when moving the vehicle, so as
not to damage the bodywork.
The 6R4 appeared in two guises. There was a so-called Clubman model which
was the road going version which developed in the region of 250 bhp (186
kW), of which around 200 were made and sold to the public for £40,000 (the
homologation version). A further 20 were taken and built to International
specifications which had a recorded output of over 410 bhp (306 kW; 416 PS)
