• The MG Cyberster Is Officially Heading To Production

It seems MG is going back to making sports cars after all as the MG Cyberster has garnered enough interest to enter production.

Not long ago, we shared information about MG’s return to making exciting sports cars. The Cyberster, as they call it, is a futuristic concept, with a retro throwback. What isn’t retro is the drivetrain, as the roadster will be powered by electricity. In any case, the MG Cyberster boasts some pretty epic figures. Although we still don’t know all the details, we do know that the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint will happen in under 3.0 seconds. In addition, you’ll be able to drive 500 miles (800 km) on a single charge – more than any other EV currently on sale.

It all sounds great on paper, but there is a catch. MG will only make the Cyberster if you show interest. This means investing $156 (around 1,000 CN¥) in a company share. Apparently, the company managed to sell 5,000 shares, which accumulated $780,000 or CN¥5.0 million.

The accumulated sum does not sound like enough to produce a sports car, even if in limited numbers, but according to SAIC, the initial interest is sufficient enough to produce the Cyberster.

Among the signature traits of the concept are the “Magic eye” headlights”, which open and close, and the slim grille design with an aggressive chin spoiler. The car has the rounded and streamlined design of older MG sports cars, staying true to the original classic MG cars.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
