    Big Mg would imply to me ZT posibly ZS as people have different ideas on Big cars..

    Heading up the new MG saloon range, the ZT models bring a new sporting aura to the upper-medium and compact executive car sectors. Four models lead the range, with new 160Ps and 190Ps versions of the 2.5-litre KV6 quad-cam alloy engines, high levels of equipment and a ZT+ specification with prices ranging between £18,595 and £21,095 OTR. MG is also simultaneously launching MG ZR and MG ZS models to compete with the same affordable-power concept in other sectors of the market.
    The MG ZT feels quick but is no match for Xe's or later 2.0 16v's, havent quite worked out the PS to BHP conversion but the ST170 is 170PS and on another site it says it's 167bhp so the ZT will not be far of their PS ratings!

    When we first got the ZT in at my old work (MG-Rover Dealers) A sales rep asked my mate if he'd take a trip down the motorway with his 218VI with the rep in the MG ZT they floored it and the 218 VI left the MG ZT for dead, all that power means nothing because the ZT weighs in around 1600kg (off memory)

    i thought PS was a metric equalivalent to BHP

    they are vertially the same figure tho

    its something like 1PS = 0.985 BHP

    Shame the picture of the ZT posted there is the 260bhp V8 variety (might even be the 385bhp version).... I doubt very much you would have kept up with that !
