At last! Something positive!
So MGR has finally decided to come out of the closet and unveil a couple of intriguing concepts at today’s annual AUTOCAR awards lunch. According to the 4CAR website, the company has chosen the prestigious award ceremony to unveil two prototypes – Coupé versions of the MG TF and Rover 75. Very much a case of showing off some of the company’s older design concepts, confident in the knowledge that it will soon have the money to bring such cars into production.
The announcement also shows that the company is going on the offensive, showing the world that it has plans to produce something relatively new – hopefully before the RD/X60 is launched in 2006/2007.
We think this is a great move by MGR, showing that it does care about the opinions of enthusiasts, but we still have memories of the CCV and EX-E, and dearly hope that the larger Coupé will actually make it into production – and sooner, rather than later. Another long wait is the last thing we all need right now…
For more news on the prototypes, best tune into the forums at mg-rover.org tomorrow. As soon as the cars are revealed, I am sure the forum will have them…
