Time 12:48 pm, March 1, 2012

BRITAIN’S newest MG dealers have reported selling new 12-plate MGs on the first day they opened.

Pinkstones MG in Stoke-on-Trent took two orders for the award-winning MG6 on Saturday and Rivervale in Brighton sold a car to a a customer who only popped along to the opening day out of curiosity.

Steve Wild, sales manager at Pinkstones, said: ‘We had a really busy weekend and sold a Union Blue MG6 GT in S trim and Granite Grey SE model. We also had more than 20 test drives and lots of interest and enquiries.

‘People who hadn’t seen the car before were impressed with the styling, handling and the value for money.’

Allan Hubbard, general manager at Rivervale in Brighton, was amazed with his sale on Saturday. He said: ‘A lady came along in her MG TF sports car just with the intention of supporting the opening event.

‘She said she was curious about the new MG. But once she had driven it she was instantly won over by it. She got more and more enthusiastic and placed an order there and then!’
