Either I'm Blind as a Bat or Purportedly Leaked MG CS Sketches Show Existing Concept…


Read more

I always like to leave some room for error when it comes to anything containing the word "leaked", be that to confirm or deny a report and/or photos in question, unless I have solid proof. With that said, I bring to your attention these allegedly leaked sketches of the MG crossover circulating on the net.

A number of sites are reporting that they depict the near production version of the MG CS crossover, which was displayed as a concept at this year's Shanghai Auto Show in April. Not to be a ballbuster, but all I see here is the aforementioned concept in grayscale drawings…

Jeremy Clarkson Steps on MG UK’s Toes After Publishing Negative Review of MG6


Read more

It used to be fun over ten years ago, when Top Gear was reborn in its current form, to hear Jeremy Clarkson cast his opinion on a variety of cars he liked or didn’t like. For some, he struck a chord with audiences, as his view coincided with the general consensus, while for others, his extreme views (and means of expression) did get him a lot of (negative) publicity, which was the purpose of the move in the first place…
