Saw an Ariel Nomad on the road the other day, dunno if they actually sold many... certainly the first time I've seen one.

If you bought it, your wish might come true. :)

Spotted a new supra and old supra out together in a park. Running, so no photo.
New one is a dog's breakfast. Ferrari California school of styling with a bulbous shape covered in incongruous details. The plate spelling something like Group-A Spec if that means anything.
Old one was sexy, black with no spoiler and no scoop (they never had the scoop here and more without than with the spoiler).

Stop trying to make MG a thing.

It’s not going to happen.

The weird thing is people think they are in anyway British, there is a guy over the road from me who has 2 TFs and 3 other Rovers of different types, he's on his second of the Chinese things yet still adorns them with Union flags and MG owners club stickers.

I noticed yesterday that the MG dealer in Piccadilly is now mainly a coffee shop. It’s the most odd thing if you walk past it. Either side of the entrance there’s 2 fridges, then a bunch of cafe tables and chairs then there’s the massive bar and finally some horrid MG product. Also there’s been a bird shit yellow MG Roadster there for 10 years which is most odd.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a customer in there and I can’t imagine how much money the parent company is losing but I guess they just see it as advertising as it’s in the best advertising spot in London although I’ve never seen anyone stopping to look at the cars. There’s a homeless man who lives under the doorway at night so it always smells of piss.
How about not having a sig at all?

Although they do now have an EV SUV for £21,500 (see here) or £25k after the first 1000 are sold, which is pretty good value in EV land.

KAHN Range Rover Sport SVR (with the rear tailgate RR text replaced with URBAN). No pics as I followed it.

Not as loud as I thought it was going to be.

I didn’t see what it offered over the std SVR - although (probably thankfully) I didn’t see the interior.

Saw a lovely Shelby GT350 Convertible today ?

Did they make those? It seemed legit...

This is an ɛ̃fini MS-9/Mazda Sentia, it was their attempt at the executive market. For some reason it didn't go well:

There's loads of them around here. Family sized white goods and they are something like £250 over 5 yrs interest free with a warranty for the same term.

See quite a few of the smaller mgs about. Pretty bland and derivative looking, but not offensive. Probably how they drive too. Again, white goods for people who aren't really bothered.

Rarely seen any MGs here but plenty of Dacias.
