VIDEO: MG debuts new Cyberster concept sports car
The MG Cyberster is created by MG’s global design team. It inherits the classic convertible shape and recalls MG tradition, drawing a number of styling cues from the classic MGB Roadster. The front face features the design of MG’s classic round headlamps and slender grille, along with interactive ‘Magic Eye’ headlights that open when switched on. In order to achieve better aerodynamic performance, the MG Cyberster has evolved the grille into an aerodynamic air duct leading to the front wheels, interpreting new aesthetics in the EV era.
Other striking detail is the ‘laser belt’ LED strip down the side of the car. The flattened ‘kamm tail’ design characterizes the rear. The LED taillights integrated flat into the rear of the car projects a digital image that echoes MG’s British heritage. In addition, the 7-spoke ‘hacker blade’ central locking high-performance wheels also enhance the overall dynamics of the MG Cyberster.
The MG Cyberster features a stunning interior that perfectly matches the dynamic appearance of the two-seater sports car. The ‘digital fiber’ interior design theme adopts a driver-centric layout, with a left and right separated cockpit design. It also features a large-sized LED instrument with a second central screen, which enhance the driving pleasure. The interaction is realized through full touch.
In terms of performance, the MG Cyberster deeply integrates mechanical performance and smart technology. The concept sports car has an intelligent all-electric architecture with an upgraded version of module-less battery technology (CTP). With this, the MG Cyberster offers an impressive range of 800 kilometres and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in less than three seconds. Intelligent driving, active-upgrading technology, 5G interconnectivity and level 3 autonomous driving capability manifestes advanced smart technology.
Carl Gotham, Director of SAIC Design Advanced London, said: “The Cyberster is a bold statement that looks strongly into MG’s future. It touches on our heritage, but more importantly, building on our cutting edge technology and advanced design. Sports cars are the lifeblood of the MG DNA and Cyberster is a hugely exciting concept for us.”
In 2024, it’s exactly hundred years ago when the iconic British car brand MG (Morris Garages) was founded. The upcoming anniversary is a great opportunity to dream of a connection between the old and the renewed MG brand. With the MG Cyberster, the brand shows its sporting aspirations while exploring the possibilities of a future sports car.
