Auto Shanghai 2011 : First images of MG’s Concept 5
Words: Keith Adams Photographs: Harry Metcalfe
The stars are out at Auto Shanghai today, with a raft of important new car announcements and unveilings taking place at what is likely to become the industry’s most important event in the coming years. The ‘British’ manufacturers are treating Shanghai extremely seriously, with new products and concepts rolling out at at impressive rate.
MG is leading the way, of course, with the new MG Concept 5 – it’s interesting to see that its styling has remained close to the concept images revealed last week. Will that translate to a similar looking production car? Historical evidence suggests it will – albeit in toned-down form – if the MG6 and ZERO Concepts are anything to go by.
