SPIED: Stunning MG Cyberster Roadster Caught With No Camouflage

Spy Shots / 18 Comments

The all-electric roadster is shaping up to be quite a looker.

Images of the new MG Cyberster electric roadster have surfaced on the Chinese social media site Weibo, giving us our best look yet at the upcoming sports car.

The SAIC-owned automaker hasn't strayed too far from the striking concept. The future Mazda MX-5 Miata rival looks sharp, with a dramatic and voluptuous rear end. There's a hint of the Polestar 6 at the rear, with a single taillight spanning the width of the rear fascia. It lends the electric sportster a modern look, along with the funky directional turn signals.

Two-tone turbine-style wheels underscore the athletic persona, along with prominent bumper flourishes and side skirts. Prominent roll hoops are a neat touch and add more drama to the aesthetics.


From the side, we can see the Cyberster has classic sports car proportions. Short overhangs provide the Cyberster with a low-slung look, helped by the lengthy hood and relatively small rear end. A traditional cloth top will also save weight, as opposed to the fashionable folding hardtop.

If previous teasers are anything to go by, the Chinese roadster will debut with Lambo-style scissor doors. The cabin is particularly appealing. The interior appears to belong to a prototype model, with a terracotta-colored dashboard and center console. The passenger seat appears to be a creamy tan, while the driver's pew is a somber black. This suggests the automaker will offer the Cyberster with a variety of upholstery options.


In terms of design, the MG will feature the controversial yoke steering wheel first seen on Tesla models. Hopefully, MG will offer more conventional steering wheel designs. The dashboard cascades into the center console gracefully and, in BMW fashion, is angled toward the driver.

There's a hint of the Jaguar F-Type in the cabin architecture, which lends the vehicle an upmarket feel. A curved digital screen can be seen above the steering wheel and, thankfully, there are multiple physical controls - no fiddling about on pesky touchscreens here.

With production slated for 2024, the Cyberster will mark a return to the compact roadster segment after MG discontinued the TF in 2011. Hopefully, it's just as exciting to drive as the MX-5 Miata - but that's a tall order.
