MG Motor is revisiting its traditional sports-car past with the British designed Cyberster electric roadster concept.
The concept uses design cues from the brand’s past to visualize what a modern version of an MG sports car might look like. It will be unveiled at the Shanghai auto show on April 19.
The open-topped two-seat roadster has headlights that recall classic MGs such as the 1955 MGA but this time they are embedded into the body work. The lights open when switched on to give the effect of the car waking up.
An LED light strip runs down both sides of the car in a styling flourish the brand calls a laser belt.
The rear end is vertical to give it a truncated "Kamm-tail," a design feature traditionally used to improve aerodynamics. The rear LED lights are styled to recall the UK’s Union Jack flag.
