MG was initially popular for its sports cars, but its global portfolio has included SUVs since its acquisition by SAC in 2005. In fact, the British carmaker has not built a sports car since it discontinued the DF Roadster in 2011. However, the company now owns MG. Cyberster looks back on its tradition with the concept. First teased in 2020, the Cyberster is a two-seater roadster that will return to the classic MGP roadster. However, it is designed as an integration of the car manufacturer’s history and future, which is why the Cyberster is designed as an all-electric car. The MG Cyberster concept will be unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show this month from April 21st to April 28th.
Prior to the global launch of the Cyberster, MG noted that it would be a high-performance roadster that could go from zero to 100 km / h in 3 seconds. It added that all of Cyberstar’s brilliant power structures would run 800 km on the same charge. However, the fact of the matter is that this specification and production model (expected to emerge in 2024) will often offer a lower driving limit.
The British carmaker has also released some teaser images of this concept. As measured from these, Cyberster will borrow styling tips from MGP, the most important of which is the round MG headlight around the slim grille. According to the company, the LED headlights flash automatically when the vehicle is operated.
The Roadster features a long bonnet with a front lip lower lip, two main kinks, large air intake and black stripes on the bonnet. Cyberstar’s profile feature has a ‘laser belt’ LED strip and two shoulder stripes to enhance the dynamic position, while the rear comes with ‘comeback’ styling. It has a flat tail and rear spoiler for improved aerodynamic performance. The overall aesthetic of the all-electric car is enhanced by the LED tail lights with an arrow-like turn signal.
Carl Gotham, Director, SAIC Design Advanced London, said, “Cyberster is a bold statement that looks to the future of MG strongly, which touches on our heritage, but most importantly our sophisticated technology and advanced design Cyberster are very exciting feedback for us. ”
