    The car that never was

    This was a prototype that MG made. Too bad it never went into production as itís nice looking ride built on the mini platform.

    JP- Thanks for taking care of the photo for me.
    I saw this car yesterday in the British Motor Museum. It caught my eye immediately. It’s a shame it never went into production.

    Re: The car that never was

    I am always fascinated in how a designers work pops up in another car- horizontal grill but I sure see a Pininfarina family resemblance.
