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

Sorry, I’m posting this from my iPhone so I can’t rotate the pic or enlarge it.
Maybe Basil can help. Thanks.

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.

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