MG will reveal the Cyberster EV concept at the Shanghai Auto Show later in April – taking the classic MGB Roadster into the future
The MG Cyberster is an electric two-seat sports car concept that brings the spirit of the classic MGB Roadster bang up to date.
It will be revealed at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show later in April.
Proudly referencing its classic MG past, the Cyberster concept is a thoroughly contemporary EV that boasts an impressive range of 500 miles and an equally impressive 0-62mph time of less than 3.0 seconds.
MG calls it the halo car of its current three-model plug-in line-up, which includes the MG ZS EV, the MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in.
Designed in the UK by the MG Advanced Design HQ, the Cyberster is a “hugely exciting concept for us,” said the firm’s London design director Carl Gotham.
“Sports cars are the lifeblood of the MG DNA.”
Features include classic round MG headlights, and rear LED tail lamps that project a digital image of heritage MG features.
The car also has a ‘laser belt’ LED strip down the side and a two-stage shoulderline with flattened ‘Kamm tail’ rear.
For now, MG is keeping more details of the new two-seat sports car under wraps – but we can expect full details to land when it is shown at the Shanghai Motor Show from 21 April 2021.
