I should be more patient

Many a time on this blog I have criticized MG for the way they are running there business in the UK but maybe I was wrong maybe they do no what they are doing and maybe I shouldn't be so impatient the reason for all this confession is MG showed at there 90th birthday party at Silverstone a concept and unlike every other concept they have shown so far it was not a small electric car or a SUV or and ford focus rival it was in fact exactly what I was begging for it was a performance orientated version of the MG3 called the MG3 trophy and it demonstrates the technical expertise of the engineering team at Longbridge as well as showing the potential of the MG3 platform while maintaining the racing traditions of MG.

Developed in just four months by a team of seven engineers in Birmingham, the car has undergone a full race lightening programme while ensuring the car’s structural stiffness is retained.. It is fitted with no backseats but it does come with a turbo charged version of the standard cars 1.5 engine which now in this car produces a whopping 201 BHP and 192ft lbs of torque to keep this bundle of fun under control it is fitted with disk brakes all round a full MSA-approved roll cage, race seats and five-point race harnesses.The 3 Trophy boasts forged pistons, a larger turbo and as well as a similarly large intercooler to insure the Trophy does not suffer from any form of lag. Induction is assisted thanks to the fitment of a high-flow air-intake, while the cylinder head has been polished to insure free air flow. As well as modifications to the air intake, the exhaust has also been upgraded, with the 3 Trophy being fitted with a custom Janspeed system.As well as the increase in power, the 3 Trophy has gained a race clutch, a limited slip differential, fully adjustable MacPherson strut front suspension and a bespoke rear anti-roll bar
So well done MG and thank you.

What do you think

just wondering what you think of my MG2 Midget before I do my final sketch. The MG2 which as you might have guessed is a modern interpretation of the original Midget from the 60s and 70s it runs on the same wheelbase but is slightly shorter overall. So what do you think tell me in the comments.

What I have been up to

First things first I have been doing a lot of MG work I have come up with a model plan I have been working on my MG 5Z and a convertible and a coupe so busy, busy, busy.
Right so here is more detail on what I am calling the MG 10 model plan which hopefully would launch MG straight into the middle of the premium market dominated by Audi, BMW and Mercedes Benz so here's what it looks like.

MG1 Small city car in the A-segment
MG2 midget small roadster/coupé

MG3 Hatchback B-segment
MG4 Extreme rally/road car version of  MG3

MG5 Hatchback C-segment
MG6 Coupé based on MG5

MG7 Hatchback/saloon D-segment
MG8 Coupé/roadster

MG10 Mid engine supercar

Apart from all that I also did some drawing pictures are below.


MG6 Z coupe
