Blog: The MG TF and me

I MUST admit that I’m probably not as unbiased as I should be on the subject of the MG TF. To me, the TF looks utterly timeless and at no point in the model’s (or that of the F’s) production run have I found myself looking at the car and thinking ‘that’s old’… or ‘yuck’, or any of the other insults you hear from some of the unenlightened inhabitants of cyberspace…

NAC MG aims to re-start production next month and I find myself pleased that we will soon have a strong link between now and a time when Longbridge was building cars in large numbers. Yes, I know the design goes back to 1995 but, after a look at the picture above, can you honestly say that it’s the aged liability that some so-called enthusiasts elsewhere have accused the car of being? Honestly? Oh well, there’s no pleasing some.

However, AROnline’s readers will soon know for sure as the time is rapidly approaching when I can get behind the wheel and find out for myself… then pass on the good – or bad – news to you.

£16,000 though? Would you? Let me know what you think.
