BRING BACK PROPER MGS
MG, your models today look like any run-of-the-mill sedan and hatchback with absolutely no resemblance to any MG from previous models we so love. Just look at what some other car manufacturers have done to bring back their iconic models: Mini, Fiat 500, VW Beetle, Jaguar F-type and Toyota 86. These guys have shown respect for both the original designers and the buyers of these iconic cars. The sales of these cars speak for themselves.
So, MG, here is my idea on how to get it right for once. It’s quite simple, really: bring back the BGT. That’s all you need; one car. I have a visual of how that car would look and it’s exactly the same but blown up on steroids, and with the modern safety features and bells and whistles we nd on today’s cars. A twodoor GT sportscar. Having owned a ‘67 BGT, I for one would be the rst in the queue. GREGG NOWELL Johannesburg [Couldn’t agree with you more, Gregg. I get that MG’S current Chinese owners are making sedans and hatchbacks in order to sell volume, but the smart marketing move would’ve been to make a small sportscar with a nod to the marque’s past – editor]
