This is the all-new MG Cyberster. It’s an electric drop-top sports car, and it’s going on sale in the UK next summer. Read on for all you need to know.

There aren’t many drop-top EVs around at the moment, but the MG Cyberster is here to change that. It’s an all-electric sports car with a retro design to tug on the heartstrings of classic MG enthusiasts.
It’ll be able to do 0-60mph in under three seconds, and it’s expected to cost around £50,000 when it goes on sale in the summer of next year.
New MG Cyberster design
The MG Cyberster has been designed to hark back to retro MG sports cars of the 70s and 80s, albeit with a modern twist. You’ll struggle to find an MGB GT with scissor doors, for example.
Those doors aren’t just a concept car fantasy either, MG has said they will carry over to the production car. That sporty sloping bonnet and the muscular wheel arches cement the Cyberster’s status as a sports car though.
Size-wise, this Cyberster is quite a bit bigger than the quintessential 70s British sports car, it’s actually around the same size as the modern Jaguar F-Type. The side profile is very sports car-esque though, with the stubby rear end and wheel-at-each-corner stance making it look purposeful.
At the rear you have a full-width LED light bar, as well as some curious-looking arrow-shaped tail lights. Behind these are some big vents which, if you squint, look a bit like the ones you’ll find on the Lotus Evija. Shame they’re fake though.
New MG Cyberster interior and infotainment
This carwow-exclusive image is your first glimpse of the Cyberster’s interior. You can put the pitchforks away, that Tesla-style yoke steering wheel will be an optional extra. You’ll be able to opt for a traditional round wheel as well.
The cabin of this new sports car is very driver-focussed, with a bank of three screens wrapping around them and a tall centre console to separate the driver and passenger. It’s worth keeping in mind that this isn’t the final production car, so bits of the cabin could be changed before the car goes on sale.
New MG Cyberster motors and batteries
The new MG Cyberster is still in development, so details on motors and batteries are thin on the ground. You can expect to see a single-motor rear-wheel drive model with around 300, as well as a flagship dual-motor version with all-wheel-drive.
Power figures haven’t been announced for that car, however it’s rumoured to have around 530hp. You’ll have to wait for an official reveal next year to find out if this comes to fruition.
