and they just want to build the sporty numbers..

more v8's.. grrrrr :)

although in worsening times of petrol shortgages and heading toward peak fuel I do think back to mad max where he ran a 1973 ford falcon XBGT 6.0 V8 which had been supercharged.

I think a 2cv would have been more likely in an oil sparse post apocalypse world..

but not as cool..

and V8's are.

Cool.

'6,000 jobs had been lost, but union hopes hundreds will be created'

Better than nowt I suppose.........

Hmmm... 33 year lease. With a six-month break clause. Is there anything to stop Nanjing moving the tooling, etc, to China once the six month period is up? <_<

Personally think they'll struggle to find much of a market - the MG-TF is a damned awful car

Yes, move to China. Easier to sell that famous British marque on an out of date vehicle there and in other Asian markets.

The right aspirational advertising there would shift loads.

Meanwhile back here there's the revamped Mazda MX5 to compete with.

Hrm, they've signed a 33 year lease for one third of the site, however there is a get out clause, unless they raise the £100m required to restart production they will walk away from the site in 6 months.

Yes they have...

Apparently the roof flies off at 115mph,

Yeah, and a toy rocket could propel an empty tin can up to 150mph. :lol:
