MG Cyberster Trophy and GT priced

MG Cyberster Trophy and GT

MG Motor UK has announced today that its highly-anticipated EV roadster, the Cyberster, is now available to order with the first UK deliveries planned for August this year.

The single motor Cyberster Trophy is available from £54,995 OTR and like all MG models is supported by a comprehensive 7-year, 80,000-mile warranty.

Featuring signature scissor doors as envisioned by Carl Gotham and his MG London design team as well as a fully-electric fabric hood which can be opened or closed in as little as 15 seconds at speeds up to 30mph, the rear-wheel-drive Cyberster Trophy promises to be a compelling yet refined drive.

The Trophy delivers power figures of 340PS (250kW) with maximum torque confirmed at 350 lb ft (475 Nm). The 0-62mph sprint is completed in just 5.0 seconds.  

The £59,995 Cyberster GT will be the marque’s new flagship, and the most powerful production model in MG’s 100-year history with no less than 503PS (375kW) and 725Nm (535 lb ft) of torque. The dual-motor, all-wheel-drive GT is capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in a staggering 3.2 seconds.

Both the Trophy and GT are equipped with four drive modes – Comfort, Custom, Sport and Track – allowing drivers to explore the full potential of the Cyberster from refined, long-distance touring through to pure, performance-focused options.

The Cyberster’s electrifying performance is combined with a luxurious and technologically advanced cabin which catapults the grand touring experience into the electric era, creating an environment hitherto reserved for ultra-expensive GTs replete with 6-way electrically-adjustable heated seats with memory function and electric lumbar support. A distinctive heated steering wheel featuring 4-way adjustability as well as twin paddles to assist with kinetic regeneration, completes the perfect juxtaposition of elegance and outright sportiness of the cabin space.

To maximise the pleasure and comfort of long distance, roof-down motoring, a specially-designed wind deflector positioned between the front seats reduces buffeting to a minimum.

The Trophy and GT’s 77kWh battery delivers an exemplary combination of range and performance. Maximum range (WLTP) for the Trophy is 316 miles and 276 miles for the more performance-focussed GT.*

Automatically-opening twin scissor doors ensure that entering the Cyberster is always an occasion.

The cabin has the classic two-seat configuration of a British roadster but with both driver and passenger placed at the centre of a contemporary, connected, cutting-edge experience.

Central to that is the wraparound three-screen cockpit, with a 10.25-inch driver display flanked by two 7-inch displays. A further colour display mounted in the centre console provides touchscreen access to the dual-zone climate controls. An extensive range of infotainment features are included, with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, 8-speaker Bose sound system, DAB and voice recognition. A 360° parking camera and twin USB ports are also standard.

Practical touches include a central armrest with storage, ambient lighting, sunglasses storage, sunvisors with integrated mirrors and lights and a 12v power socket. A 249-litre boot capacity ensures grand touring practicality for a long weekend.

MG’s interior designers have designed a cabin to match the striking exterior. In addition to the highly distinctive and multi-functional steering wheel there are metal sports pedals, with the leather-style seats available in grey with white accents or black with red. There are five exterior colour choices, from the classic New English White to the vibrant Inca Yellow, accentuated by the contrasting black lower trim. Including roof fabric and exterior paint colours, there are 32 combinations to choose from.
