The first MG ZT had a KV6 2.5 litre engine with either 190Ps or 245Nm of torque driving through a 5 speed manual gearbox with a lowered final drive to aid acceleration and response, or with 160Ps and 230Nm driving through the same gearbox but with longer ratios.

During 2002 there was a dramatic increase in model variations including 1800cc 4 cylinder K series engined versions with 120Ps and 160Ps, diesel and auto models.

The MG ZT 260 was re-engineered to a longitudinally mounted, in line, V8 with rear wheel drive. The 4.6 litre engine and delivers 260bhp with 410Nm of torque.
