The MGTF, the UK’s best-selling sports car, has been voted Performance Car of the Year by Driver Magazine, at the Annual Motoring Industry Car of the Year Awards in New Zealand.
Selected for its “truly sporting chassis and brisk performance”, Driver Magazine said that it “really liked the MGTF and found it both fun and a serious performer”. The MGTF beat the HSV/Monaro, Maserati Coupe/Spyder and Mitsubishi Diamante Ralliart.
Allan Dick from Driver Magazine commented: “The MGTF 160’s new suspension set-up, improved body torsional rigidity, more powerful engines and attractive new styling were key influences in the judging panel’s decision to vote the TF Driver Magazine’s Performance Car of the Year.”
John Tweedy, International Markets Director at MG Rover Group, said: “This success in the first few months of our re-entry in to New Zealand is another example of the great enthusiasm for our products shown in new markets and bodes well for our expansion in international markets.”
