A car salesman in Hemel Hempstead has put one of the vehicles on sale online – with a less than flattering description.
The 2002 MG TF appears, on first inspection, to be a decent low-price convertible, with 85,000 miles on the clock and a 1.8-litre engine under the bonnet.
However, the car's advert features a headline which may put potential buyers off straight away – 'True heap of the week'.
From there, the advert gets even less complimentary.
The seller continues to admit: "We dislike these cars with a passion. What a woeful looking, hateful, poorly made, sloppy handling pile of dung.
"It's all a bit tragic really, it starts, drives and runs fine.
"The tyres are great, and probably the most valuable things on the car. Any rust you find on it is free of charge.
"The interior of the car is OK, some wear through the horrible cheap leatherette and suede effect excuse of the front seats – probably worn from the owner getting in and out many times to push it home!"
The dealership selling the car reports that it specialises in Jaguar, BMW and Range Rover vehicles – though it would seem that it has found room for the little MG.
