MG6 GT from SAIC in BTCC British Touring Car Championship
MG Motor is owned by Shanghai Auto, China’s largest carmaker.
The MG6 GT hatchback is the first new MG model in 16 years.
The MG6 GT hatchback was designed and engineered largely in the U.K., and is assembled in Birmingham. It is the first all-new MG model in 16 years. The car, which shares its underpinnings with the Chinese-built Roewe 550 sedan, went on sale in the U.K. last May.
An interesting and gutsy move by the Chinese into professional motorsport in Europe.
