Dating back to the 1920s, MG is a fabled British marque that’s currently the UK’s fastest-growing automotive manufacturer. And while MG’s current lineup is comprised of half-a-dozen practical wagons, SUVs, and crossovers, the company’s roots undoubtedly lie in sports cars. In a bid to honor its performance-focused past, MG has tasked its London-based Advanced Design Centre with penning a concept sports car embodying the spirit and DNA of the brand in a futuristic package.
Dubbed the “MG Cyberster,” the concept car represents a modern interpretation of a classic two-door roadster with ‘laser belt’ LED light strips running across the sides of the car, a flattened ‘Kamm tail’ rear-end with integrated flush-housed LED taillights that project Union Jack flags, and a nose with a narrow grille and round LED headlights that are a contemporary nod to the circular items on MG models from year’s past. The Cyberster is also loaded with tech including 5G connectivity and a cutting-edge battery pack that affords a 497-mile range. The MG Cyberster is scheduled to make its public debut later this month at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show where more details are expected to be unveiled.
