MG6 Concept to be revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show
Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) has gotten a lot of millage out of ex-Rover/MG designs. For example, the groundwork for it’s small Roewe 550 sedan had already been laid out by the time the Nanjing Automobile Group (which would become SAIC) bought the bones of MG Rover in 2005.
Now the once British MG is celebrating its 85th anniversary, and SAIC is honoring it by bringing back the long-honored tradition of badge engineering. Later this month at the Shanghai Auto Show, SAIC will show off a concept called the MG6. While it may have a face of its own, everything else should be recognizable as the Roewe 550, including the ex-Rover 1.8-liter turbo engine.
