The 2021 Shanghai Auto Show has witnessed some of the best designs you would ever imagine. One of these delightful new models unveiled is the MG’s new 2-seater sportscar concept, inspired by the design of the vintage MGB roadster. This particular one is powered by an electric motor.
From what the carmaker said, the new model will be able to offer a driving range of 500 miles on a full charge. It can also sprint from zero to 62 mph in a remarkable less than 3 secs. So far, we don’t know its output in terms of horsepower and the specification of the battery. Hopefully, SAIC will provide such information very soon.
The front end of the latest Cyberster concept offers a vintage-shaped MG grille, which also acts as the air duct for smooth flowing of air over the chassis while the ‘Magic Eye’ headlights open when activated or switched on. Its bodywork offers LED trips running down its two sides and a ‘Kamm tail’ flat rear end with a unique LED light signature that shows the British heritage of the company.
On the inside, it gives the driver every imaginable liberty, separating the driving cockpit and passenger, while offering a massive digital instrument cluster and an alternative central screen. The electric-powered Cyberster features 5 connectivity, zero gravity seats with floating head restraints, red leather and door panels that show the ‘laser belts’ that run down on the outside of the car.
Carl Gotham, who happens to be the Director 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. Cyberster is a hugely exciting concept for us.”
