    In the summer of 2009, two new MGs were being launched to join the highly successful MG TF LE500; the affordable MG TF 135 and a unique new MG that is being produced to mark the 85th Anniversary of the brand, the MG TF 85th Anniversary.

    Jack Safiruddin, Sales & Aftersales Operations Manager for MG, said. "With summer kicking in, the launch of two new cars and our recent scrappage announcement regarding a £2000 reduction on the price of a new MG, the next few months will be a very tempting time for customers to get the new sports car they have always wanted."

    New Entry Level MG TF 135

    The greatly anticipated MG TF 135 will be launched shortly and is sure to appeal to motorists who want sports car fun at a highly competitive price. Good levels of trim and equipment including a Clarion ICE system, combine with a price tag that will broaden its appeal and bring it within the budget of many more people. The TF 135 will hit showrooms shortly, offering all the fun and appeal of a convertible sports car at a highly affordable £13,511 OTR.

    Unique Anniversary Car

    A unique MG TF is being launched to mark the 85th Anniversary of the MG brand. The MGTF 85th Anniversary will be a great looking car with fantastic handling.

    Available in three special colours overlaid with striking graphics and a new design of alloy wheel, from the outside the car looks sensational. The cabin is stunning too as the specialist graphics continue with monogrammed sill finishers and gear knob which complement new stylish Aubergine leather trim and a high quality ICE system.

    Apart from the stunning look, the new TF 85th Anniversary model also benefits from a ride and handling package that's tuned to make this car unique to drive. Bilstein suspension, Eibach anti roll system, lower ride height, an all new anti torsion pack and a modified wheel set up on Rimstock 'Twisted Pepper' style wheels give the 85th Anniversary edition a grown up feel and very precise handling at high speeds.

    Jack Safiruddin, continued, "The TF 85th is a real driver's car and is an extremely appropriate model to mark the anniversary of an iconic brand like MG. The combination of looks and handling will appeal to enthusiasts and prospective new customers alike."

    This car will be launched at £15,664 on the road which, again, after the Government's scrappage scheme deduction will make the TF 85th a competitive £13,664.

    The New MG Family

    With the fully loaded and highly specified MG TF LE500, the extremely affordable MG TF 135 and the tightly handling MG 85th Anniversary, MG now offers a family of cars that give existing owners looking for something new, as well as prospective customers who just want to enjoy British mid engined, top down sports car driving, some real choices.

  2. They are aware that this car is around 15 years old?

    And those wheels are terrible.
  3. pretty damn ugly

  5. "The TF 85th is a real driver's car and is an extremely appropriate model to mark the anniversary of an iconic brand like MG."

    Extremely inappropriate, more like. They should have called it the 5th. To lament the five-year anniversary for the death of MG. I wish BMW hadn't broken up the Rover group, I think they could have achieved some pretty great things.

    Also, who the #$%# wrote that article? Must be high like a kite to write that it looks "stunning" and "sensational". It was mediocre when released, and 15 years on, it's just awful. Check out the dimples close to the front fender/bumper panel gap on the silver one in the second picture. Terrible.
  6. It's just dying all over again.
  7. Shitty press release is full of shit. RIP MG.
  8. Don't like the wheels. The rest of the car is bland but ok.
  9. I think it aged pretty good for what it is.
  10. FFS just let MG die already.

  12. apparently this cars chassis is based off the 1980 rover metro, but is reversed and the engine moved towards the centre so it's mid engined.

    So in actual fact this car goes back like 30 years!
  13. who owns Mg now?
  14. The MG marque passed, along with the Rover marque to the MG Rover group in May 2000, when BMW 'broke up' the Rover Group. This arrangement saw the return of MG badges on sportier Rover-based cars, and a revised MG F model, known as the MG TF, launched in 2002. However, all production ceased in April 2005 when MG Rover went into administration.

    The assets of MG Rover were bought by Chinese carmaker Nanjing Automobile in July 2005 who themselves were bought by SAIC in December 2007.

    SAIC - Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation
  15. thanks

    I allways had hope for MG, but I guess it's the furthest away from great cars more than ever now...
  16. Still having a weak spot for the MGF
  17. still pretty good since it has the Bilstein suspension and Eibach anti roll system.
