reading Evo mag at the moment, and MG have a concept car "MG GT". It is said that MG will be making this car in the very near future to rival the Audi TT. It will probably have a rover V6 (not concept's v8).
It is said to of always been designed by rover with mass production in mind as nearly all the panels are taken from the TF! but just slightly modified. Looks good too =D>
Hope it does come out [-o<

I thought that the old MG F was itself based on the Metro. Is that right? Maybe it was the early ones that were and then they were developed.

The MGF takes 2 front sub-frames from the Metro puts them back to back and builds the MGF around that. It also takes the hydrgas suspension and the wheel hubs!

However, much was changed when it became the TF - The hydragas has been dumped in favour of the Zed setup and as such, much of the underpinnings were redsigned to take the new system, quite a bit of work!

Add to that the new front lights, all new bumpers and yes, even the sides of the cars are redisnged, not only for the improved airflow intake, but also to incorporate those new built in side skirts.

Bottom line? Them hubs are probably all the Metro thats left in them! More British than the ZR :wink:
