MG Unveils 204HP MG3 Trophy Championship Racing Concept

MG unveiled a concept racecar at Silverstone last weekend based on the MG3supermini called MG3 Trophy Championship Concept. Developed by a team of specialist MG engineers within a short time frame, the race car is powered by the same 1.6-liter petrol engine from the production car tuned to develop 204hp (98h more) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque.

The MG3 Trophy Championship study also features a limited slip differential, a fully adjustable Macpherson strut front set up with bespoke rear anti roll bar, coil over rear suspension, adjustable front splitter and twin plain adjustable rear spoiler. The car has undergone a full body-lightening program without compromising on stiffness.

The racing concept was created by a team of engineers based at SAIC Motor’s European Design and Technical Center (SMTC), located alongside MG Motor UK at the Longbridge site in Birmingham.

MG’s objective with the study is to see if there is potential demand for an Trophy racer. The MG3 Trophy Championship concept was showcased throughout the weekend at the Stowe and GP circuit where it was driven by MG BTCC drivers Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff.
