    SOURCE: http://newcars.modiauto.com.cn/newcar/1089/28066.html (the pictures are maybe a decade old)


    This is not a TF! This is higher than the TF! Recently, MG will be launched officially confirmed that a new Roadster model news, although equipped with 1.5T and 2.0T engines seem to let their owners a little more confidence, but take a closer look, or feel a little to what.
    Although MG said, "This is not a TF! which is higher than the TF!" can still remembered how small series TF that weak power, high prices and dismal sales. But MG has confirmed this new model of production planning, and TF same, it will also use convertible design, but the location is higher than the TF model has been discontinued. Also, the criticism on the power system may also be improved, will be equipped with 1.5T and 2.0T engine, but the engine layout will be changed after the pre-drive.By the way, it will be equipped with the engine or SAIC technology research and development center in the United Kingdom is responsible.
    Back in 2010, when foreign media had exposed a group MG Project X120's new sports car renderings. The future mass production of a new car, most likely made based on the car, because the new platform will be used to build, so the engine rear-wheel drive layout appears on the TF will not appear on it.
    Figure: A few years ago in the country hastily MG TF to this new MG sports car brought greater challenge, or that is the market, the new car is expected to be officially unveiled until 2020.

    Oh those wheels look fine. So I confidently predict the spyshots will show prototypes running on castors... Wink

    Very old images though, but the story is good, especially the UK connection. This is exactly the sort of story that Longbridge needs to own and run - perfect fodder for UK magazines and excellent for brand visibility.
