MG Motor UK : UK-spec MG6 to debut at MPH/Top Gear Live events

The first all-new MG in 15 years will be the star at two of the biggest motor shows in Britain this autumn when the UK specification MG6 is unveiled at the MPH featuring Top Gear Live events in November.

The MG6 is a 1.8-litre five-door fastback designed and engineered in the UK and which will be built at MG’s factory in Birmingham.

MG6 development vehicles in left-hand drive format have been shown at two major events earlier in 2010; however MPH will be the first time that full UK right-hand drive production specification MG6’s have been displayed to the public.

Peter Brooking, MG Motor UK’s Marketing Manager, said: “MPH featuring Top Gear Live crowds are always knowledgeable and enthusiastic so we think the new MG6 will prove very popular with visitors to the shows.

“MG6 is not just the first all-new MG model for several years but it’s a true MG with all the hallmarks which have made the brand so popular throughout its long history. It’s a striking, high quality car that is also practical and sporty.”

This year’s MPH featuring Top Gear Live events take place at London’s Earls Court from November 4-7 and the NEC Birmingham from November 11-14.

Clive claims that his interest in the BMC>MG story dates back to his childhood in the 1960s when the family’s garage premises were leased to a tenant with an Austin agency. However, back in the 1920s and 1930s, his grandmother was one of the country’s first female Garage Proprietors so cars probably run in his genes! Admits to affairs with Alfa Romeos, but has more recently owned an 06/06 MG TF 135 and then a 15/64 MG3 Style… Clive, who was AROnline’s News Editor for nearly four years, stood down from that role in order to devote more time to various Motor Racing projects but still contributes articles on as regular basis as his other commitments permit.
