The MG Cyberster Could Go Against the Toyota 86, Subaru BRZ

Just days after revealing design renderings, MG released the first official photos of its Cyberster concept, which will be making its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month.

The Cyberster, developed by the team at the MG Advanced Design Center in London, is a two-door, two-seater sports car recalling the brand’s tradition, drawing a number of styling cues from the classic MGB Roadster while also ushering in new high-tech features, including an interactive gaming cockpit and 5G connectivity.

Underpinning it is an intelligent all-electric architecture that enables an approximate range of 800 kilometers, and deliver a 0 to 100 km/h time of less than three seconds.

The design itself is designed to enhance aerodynamic performance, but MG designers have integrated some trademark elements such as the classically-shaped grille, round headlights with a “Magic Eye” design when switched on, and the “laser belt” LED strip down the side of the car. At the back, it has a flattened “kamm tail” rear with the LED taillights integrated flat onto the back.

The MG Cyberster features a “digital fiber” interior theme. It has a minimalist, driver-centric layout with a separated cockpit for the driver and passenger. The seats are dubbed “Zero Gravity” seats with floating headrests while the door panels and leather handles are a reflection of the “laser belt” that runs down the car’s exterior.

MG hasn’t made any indications on whether or not they will build the Cyberster. Previously, they said that sportscars, particularly roadsters aren’t in their radar because they are simply not economically viable. That said, if parent company wants to capture the glory days of MG, they should build it if just to showcase their design and technical prowess.
