MG today revealed first images of its Cyberster concept car which is set to debut at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show later this month.
Developed by the team at the MG Advanced Design Centre in London, the MG Cyberstar is a two-door, two-seater sports car recalling the brand’s tradition, drawing a number of styling cues from the classic MGB Roadster.
The Cyberster features classic round MG headlights, coupled with a slim grille design, along with interactive ‘Magic Eye’ headlights that open when switched on.
Other unique 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.
Its powerful sports car profile has a two-stage line with the rear flattened “kamm tail.” The tail lamps are of LED construction and are integrated flat into the rear of the car, showing a digital picture that reflects the UK heritage of MG.
According to MG, the all-electric intelligent design of the Cyberster allows 800km (500 miles) of EV range and offers less than three seconds of 0-100km/h (0-62mph). 5G interconnectivity will also be available.
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 cutting edge technology and advanced design.
“Sports cars are the lifeblood of the MG DNA and Cyberster is a hugely exciting concept for us.”
More information on the Cyberster will be revealed when the model is shown at the Shanghai Motor Show (April 21-28, 2021).
