Production of the MG TF has recommenced, with sales starting in September.

Now owned by China’s Nanjing, the plant will build a mildly facelifted version of the two-seat Mazda MX-5 rival, which will go on sale for £16,399. This will be for a ‘500 LE’ launch model, with leather, special trim, body-colour hardtop and a 1.8-litre K-Series engine.


It’s the first stage in Nanjing’s plans to build up to four new models at the plant over the next five years, after buying the assets of MG Rover.

So far, the company’s website ( lists over 50 dealers that will sell the car. In the future, the company hopes to deliver new models to them, which will include a large luxury family model.
