More than six years after China’s Nanjing Automobiles acquired the once-famed MG brand only to be incorporated itself in SAIC Motor’s portfolio a couple of years later, the British carmaker is still struggling to find its way and re-enter the global scene.
At last month’s Beijing Auto Show, we saw MG providing a glimpse into the future with the Icon, a study for a small crossover coupe.
Another proposal for a future MG model comes from a design student of the Coventry University in the UK, who created a sports car concept during his internship at SAIC Design.
The designer is Yin Lu and the study is the MG Midget, which is named after the brand’s two-seater convertible model built from 1961 to 1979, with the British company producing some 226,000 examples of this car.
“The MG Midget Concept is a study of a compact mid-engined hybrid sportscar with a fiber-glass body,” says Lu.
You can check out Lu’s Midget in the gallery and video that follow below.
