Better late than never seems to be MG’s mantra at the moment. While the world waits for the MG6 diesel, the company has launched a limited edition version of the car to celebrate its participation in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). Arriving too late to capitalise on the season as it progressed, and just in time to see Jason Plato not take the Championship, the new car is an interesting addition to the line-up.
The MG6 BTCC Special Edition is finished with a Racing Matt Black roof and Racing Matt Black 18in alloy wheels and comes with Racing Black gloss sills, door mirror covers, lower front air dam and rear spoiler. There’s a BTCC badge on the grille and a multi-coloured MG KX Momentum Racing team decal is on the bonnet extension panel above the front grille, on the fastback boot lid and on the front doors and wings just behind the chrome wing vent. BTCC Edition graphics are highlighted on the sills and also inside the car on the passenger facia.
The car is based on the SE version and comes with the same equipment and after-sales package as that car.
