The new MG TF sports car is available in four model specifications – TF 115, TF 120 Stepspeed, TF 135 and TF 160, representing a significant change to enhance the appeal of the UK’s best-selling British roadster.

The aggressive and purposeful style of the MG TF is sleeker and sportier, with a lower stance made possible by the inclusion of new:

Front bumper formed for aerodynamic performance with MG grille identity
Larger front grille aperture and MG badge
Rear bumper housing larger exhaust pipes
Headlamp units incorporating projector lamps and direction indicator
Body monoside with new shape mid-engine air-intakes
Boot lid with integral aerodynamic spoiler and high-mounted LED stop-lamp
Additional new features to the range include:

New suspension design with coil springs and multi-link rear axle design
Solid mounted, modified subframes
Lower stance also benefits centre of gravity, stability and handling
ABS cars have reduced stopping distance
Body rigidity is up by 20%, with improvements in handling and scuttle shake
A number of enhanced customer choice items include new:

Paint colours including XPower Grey and Le Mans Green
Coloured hoods – three new optional colours: blue, grey and green
