MG Motor has shared more details about its cutting-edge Cyberster concept car, which is set to premier at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show later this month. Developed by the team at the MG Advanced Design Centre in London, the Cyberster is a two-door, two-seater sports car recalling the brand’s heritage and featuring styling cues from the classic MGB Roadster.
The Cyberster introduces supercar-level performance from a fully-electric MG. Its intelligent all-electric architecture delivers an Electric Vehicle range of 800km (500 miles) and a 0-100km/h time (0-62mph) in less than three seconds. It will also feature 5G interconnectivity. Additionally, a collaboration between MG and Bilibili e-sports has resulted in the co-creation of the industry's first super e-sports cockpit for the Cyberster.
Showcasing an undeniably bold and eye-catching exterior styling, the Cyberster features classic round MG headlights, coupled with a slim grille design, along with interactive ‘Magic Eye’ headlights that open when switched on. Other striking details include a 'laser belt' LED strip down the side of the car and the outline of the door, which follows the direction of the LED strip.
Its powerful sports car profile has a distinct two-stage shoulder line, with a flattened ‘kamm tail’ rear. The tail lamps are of LED construction and are integrated flat into the rear of the car, projecting a digital image that echoes MG’s British heritage.
Tom Lee, Managing Director of MG Motor’s Middle East operations, commented: “With the release of the Cyberster, the brand is adamant on bridging and strengthening its British heritage with its current high-tech and state-of-the-art products. MG has always been known for its sports cars and we will always be keen to offer customers exclusive masterpieces that are truly unique”.
MG has confirmed its intention to manufacture the Cyberster as a production car, and will reveal more information on the Cyberster when it is revealed at the Shanghai Motor Show (April 21-28, 2021).
