    New MG dealers chalk up sales on opening day
    Britain’s newest MG dealers got off to a great start, selling cars on the first day
    they opened. Within days they cars will be on the road bearing the new ’12
    Pinkstones MG in Stoke-on-Trent took two orders for the award-winning
    MG6 on Saturday and Rivervale in Brighton sold a car to a woman who only
    popped along to the opening day out of curiosity!
    Steve Wild, Sales Manager at Pinkstones, said: “We had a really busy weekend
    and sold a Union Blue MG6 GT in S trim and Granite Grey SE model. We also
    had more than 20 test drives and lots of interest and enquiries.
    “People who hadn’t seen the car before were impressed with the styling,
    handling and the value for money.”
    Allan Hubbard, General Manager at Rivervale in Brighton, was amazed with his
    sale on Saturday. He explained: “A lady came along in her MG TF sports car
    just with the intention of supporting the opening event.
    “She said she was curious about the new MG. But once she had driven it she
    was instantly won over by it. She got more and more enthusiastic and placed
    an order there and then!”
    On the road prices for the MG6 GT fastback start from £15,495 and rise to
    £18,995. The MG6 Magnette sports saloon range from £15,995 to £19,995.
    However the current MG 5,4,3,2,1 offer gives savings worth more than £1,000
    on the list price.
    The sales from both dealerships will go out in March and carry the new ’12
    plate registration identifier along with others sold from the MG dealer
    Both the award-winning MG6 GT and the MG6 Magnette sports-saloon are
    designed and engineered at the MG Birmingham factory where final assembly
    of the UK models also takes place.
    The MG6 won the What Car? 2012 Security Award. Two racing versions of
    the MG6 GT will compete in the 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car
    Championship with double champion Jason Plato and rising race star Andy
    Neate behind the wheels.
