MG at British F1 Grand Prix

Three of the exciting new MG3 superminis will be on show at the British F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone this weekend.

Thousands of F1 fans will be able to see the new small MG which has created a storm of interest following the recent unveiling of the full range of styling options available from launch.

Buyers will be able to have fun stamping their own character on their MG3 thanks to a fantastic personalisation palette with 10 colour choices and a wide range of exterior graphics and interior finishes.

On show in the Woodlands camping area, just 250 metres from the Silverstone circuit, will be three examples – a car in Lady Grey with Shards graphics; the second in Smokey Blues with Hope & Glory graphics and a third in White on the Tiles with Mod Oct graphics.

MG3, designed and engineered at the MG Birmingham plant, is a distinctive statement of modern British style and is designed to target young and young-at-heart buyers who want a really practical small car that is fun to buy, own and drive.

Exterior highlights include 16” Diamond cut alloy wheels, unique LED ‘hockey stick’ daytime running lights, sport-design bumper, side sill extensions, rear spoiler, sports-design rear valance, chrome exhaust finishers and MG insert headlamps.

Inside the MG3 you can find an easy to use air conditioning system, six-speaker audio, Bluetooth with audio streaming, DAB radio, USB/Aux input, automatic lights, automatic wipers, rear parking sensors, ‘ZERO’ design fabric seats and part-leather trim.

This unique and contemporary style of the MG3 is the work of the 30 design staff and 300 engineers at SAIC’s UK Technical Centre at the MG Birmingham site in Longbridge, UK. SAIC Motor is MG’s parent company and is the world’s eighth largest automotive company.

The MG3 will become the second in a new generation of MG vehicles to leave the assembly line at the Birmingham factory, following the introduction of the MG6 petrol and diesel range of GT fastbacks and Magnette four-door sports saloons.

Prices for the exciting MG3 range will be announced in August and the car will go on sale in September.

Guy Jones, MG’s Sales & Marketing Director, said: “We have only just started to roll out the MG3 in the UK and already the reaction has been fantastic. We’ve even had people already putting their names down to secure one of the first cars.

“It’s distinctive, cheeky and will be a real fun car – the vast range of styling choices means the fun starts even when you’re ordering one. But at the same time it’s a very practical car and will offer one of the very best interior space packages in class.”
