    First news from the show comes from ChinaCarTimes in Earls Court :


    MG3 to launch with 1.3L and AMT gearbox

    4 November 2010

    The MG6 and MG Zero concept car (aka the MG3) are going to launch in the UK tomorrow at London’s Earl Court, however we can reveal some early details of the MG3.

    The MG3 is expected to launch in early 2011 according to media reports and will initially come with a 1.3L engine and also the choice of an AMT gearbox and a 5 speed manual. The 1.3L engine is good for 92bhp, whilst the 1.5L is good for around 109bhp. SAIC are also working on direct injection small displacement engines, ranging from 1.0L to 1.5L, which will considerably improve power and reduce emissions, engineers in SAIC’s engineering center are playing a pivotal part in the project and is considered a joint project between SAIC and GM, the project will also see SAIC working on dual clutch gearboxes.

    MG6 with police officers which they were given a load of literature about the car, they were impressed.

    That's me, that is! Laughing Laughing




    Interesting time with MG, the Zero looks great in the metal.

    As for Windy's question about the indicator on the wing, it's been replaced by (sadly cheap looking) plastic grille.


    I'm putting a report together for AROnline, so I'll post links up when it's online. Very impressed by the 6 though. I'll take a TSE, in red, please!

    I should point out too that only four of us there were journalists...
