The MG3 Trophy Championship concept was developed and based on the current MG3 production vehicle platform and created to highlight in-house engineering. It was unveiled at the 2014 Silverstone event.
Design and calibration capabilities by SMTC UK at Longbridge, continues the MG tradition of club racing.
The Trophy vehicle has undergone a full body-lightening program without compromising on stiffness. It boasts a limited slip differential, a fully adjustable Macpherson strut front set up with bespoke rear anti roll bar, adjustable front splitter and twin plain adjustable rear spoiler.
The racing concept was created by a team of engineers, managed by Vehicle Engineering Specialist Adrian Guyll, and based at SAIC Motor's state of the art European Design and Technical Centre (SMTC), located alongside MG Motor UK at the Longbridge site in Birmingham. SMTC and MG are both owned by parent company, SAIC Motor; the largest automotive company in China, currently ranked 103rd in the Fortune 500.
