Sports cars are the lifeblood of the MG DNA, and Cyberster is a hugely exciting automotive concept.
Set to debut at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show later this month, the Cyberster – developed by the team at the MG
Advanced Design Centre in London – is a two-door, two-seater sports car recalling the brand’s tradition, drawing a number of styling cues from the classic MGB Roadster.
MG currently offers three plug-in models in the UK – the established MG ZS EV, the game-changing All New MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in, all backed up by MG’s 7 year warranty. Its UK Advanced Design HQ employs over 40 designers.
MG Cyberster features classic round MG headlights, coupled with a slim grille design, along with interactive ‘Magic Eye’ headlights that open when switched on.
Other striking details of the MG Cyberster are the ‘laser belt’ LED strip down the side of the car and the outline of the door, which follows the direction of the LED strip.
“The Cyberster is a bold statement that looks strongly into MG’s future, touching on our heritage but more importantly building on our cutting-edge technology and advanced design,” said SAIC Design Advanced London director Carl Gotham. “Sports cars are the lifeblood of the MG DNA, and Cyberster is a hugely exciting concept for us.”
Cyberster Concept’s powerful sports car profile has a distinct two-stage shoulder line, with a flattened ‘kamm tail’ rear. The tail lamps are of LED construction and are integrated flat into the rear of the car, projecting a digital image that echoes MG’s British heritage.
MG Cyberster’s intelligent all-electric architecture will enable an EV range of 800km (500 miles) and deliver a 0-100km/h time (0-62mph) of less than three seconds. It will also feature 5G interconnectivity.
MG said that it will reveal more information when the luxury car model is shown at the Shanghai Motor Show (April 21-28, 2021).
