Introducing the new and exclusive MG Cyberster concept car - a vision of a potential future addition to MG's growing electric and hybrid range.
The stunning two-seater convertible was unveiled at the world-renowned Shanghai Auto show. Its revolutionary sports car shape recalls the classic MG roadsters that form an integral part of the brand’s heritage. It also boasts the latest in smart technology, including a gaming cockpit and 5G, as well as being an electric powertrain that promises an 800km range.
The Cyberster - developed by the team at the MG Advanced Design Centre in London – is a two-door, two-seater sports car, drawing a number of styling cues from the classic MGB Roadster while also ushering in new high-tech features, including an interactive gaming cockpit and 5G connectivity.
The Cyberster’s intelligent all-electric architecture will enable an approximate EV range of 800km (500 miles) and deliver a 0-100km/h time (0-62mph) of less than three seconds, while the body is designed to enhance aerodynamic performance. The classically shaped MG grille also serves as an air duct to ensure airflow over the car’s chassis.
Classic round MG headlights - A slim grille design, along with interactive ‘Magic Eye’ headlights that open when switched on.
'Laser belt' - LED strip down the side of the car and the outline of the door.
Powerful sports car profile - Distinct two-stage shoulder line, with a flattened ‘kamm tail’ rear, accentuated by unusual ‘hacker blade’ alloy wheels. 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.
‘Digital Fibre’ interior design - A driver-centric layout, with a separated cockpit for driver and passenger and a large-sized LED instrument cluster with a second central screen. The screen ahead of the driver presents all of the key vehicle information in a modern but minimalist style, while the central display houses its more interactive features.
MG’s ‘Zero Gravity’ seats - Floating head restraints and door panels and red leather handles that reflect the ‘laser belt’ that runs down the car’s exterior.
Carl Gotham, Director of SAIC Design Advanced London, said: “The Cyberster is a bold statement that looks strongly into MG’s future, touching on our heritage but more importantly building on our technology and advanced design.”
