    Is it the MG2?

    It's a Zebra car with what appears to be an octagonal badge indent in its boot and a front grill closely resembling the MG6:

    I think the "zebra" patern is doing a good job of hiding the curves and possibly adding some that aren't there, we have a long wait to see it without it yet though. I'll be very interested to see if those rear lights stay sticking out like that!

    In the song "Jupp" by BAP from the early 1980s, a Cologne tramp talks about all the wonders of the world including a checked zebra!

    (it's a very old song because despite all the Yetis playing cards, the cobras, the gold rush, Jupp has never heard of Stalingrad)

    It looks much better when you can see it better Exclamation

    We can see from the second picture that the sticky out lights are just stuck on to make the prototype road legal and nothing to do with the real design.

    I like the white plastic bubble-blowing attachment at the front myself:



    though looking at some of the background is instructive - there's a definite Shang at the beginning of the writing on the side of the recovery lorry, and I also spy a red "totem" (petrol station?), an overpass, and one of those shipping containers trying to burn the MG off at the lights...

    I don't think the MG is going to win while sitting on a recovery truck Evil or Very Mad
