British automaker and now Chinese SAIC-owned MG has released the official photos of their latest electric concept, Cyberster. This concept reveal came prior to the Cuberster debut at the Shanghai motor show in the upcoming weeks.
The all-electric sports car has a futuristic design, ‘magic eye’ LED headlights and a tech-loaded cabin with 5G connectivity. It promises a range of 800km on a single charge. This electric car is being billed as “the world’s first pure electric supercar gaming cockpit”.
The all-electric Roadster is somewhat of a swansong to MG’s classic MGB Roadster, a reinterpretation of the days of old melded into the future of automotive, says Carl Gotham, Director of SAIC Design Advanced London.
“The Cyberster is a bold statement that looks strongly into MG’s future, touching on our heritage but more importantly building on our cutting-edge technology and advanced design.
“Sports cars are the lifeblood of the MG DNA and Cyberster is a hugely exciting concept for us.”
The car is flanked by two doors, sharp body lines, and designer wheels. Union Jack-like LED taillights connected by an LED ‘laser belt’ are available on the rear end.
The MG Cyberster has a 2-seater cabin, featuring a sleek, F1-inspired steering wheel, bucket seats called ‘zero gravity seats,’ and support for the 5G network.
It also houses large screens for the infotainment system as well as the instrument cluster.
It’s worth mentioning that MG Cyberster is not simply a concept car. MG says it plans to mass-produce it in the future, as long as there is a demand for it.
