Evaluated by a panel of experts from the world-famous Top Gear team, the awards celebrate the greatest cars in the evolving electric vehicle (EV) sector across a range of categories. The judges voted the MG Cyberster ‘Best EV Roadster’ citing its exhilarating driving performance and refined handling.

Taking inspiration from the brand’s renowned classic MGB model, the Cyberster represents an exquisite combination of futuristic design, strong performance and sustainability. Single and dual motor options deliver outstanding performance with the dual motor Cyberster GT providing an output of 496 HP (375kW) and 725Nm (535 lb ft) of torque. The all-wheel-drive GT can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in a blistering 3.2 seconds making this MG’s fastest-ever accelerating production car.

Speaking of MG’s win, Top Gear Magazine’s Associate Editor, Tom Ford, said that the Cyberster “takes the brand somewhere new” and “it’s unique in its sector.” Ford’s praise continued, commenting “the big news is that the Cyberster is a hoot to drive” and is “absolutely enough for a twisty loop of road.”

The MG Cyberster's tour around the Middle East, which concluded earlier this year, saw the Cyberster visit iconic landmarks across Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the UAE, and Oman, showcasing MG's dedication to electric mobility and its rich automotive heritage.

Tom Lee, Managing Director of MG Middle East: “In MG's centenary year, the Cyberster has already received a lot of positive feedback in the Middle East, so we are incredibly proud to receive such a prestigious award from Top Gear. It reinforces our commitment to delivering innovative and exceptional electric vehicles that resonate with our customers in the Middle East."

Latest project from CALLUM to make global public debut at Concours on Savile Row

CALLUM SKYE, the first own brand vehicle fully developed in-house by the British design and engineering business CALLUM, will be seen in public for the first time at Concours on Savile Row, London on 22-23 May 2024.

The pioneering, high-performance, all-wheel-drive, multi-terrain electric vehicle was announced in November 2023 to global critical acclaim. The first running prototype will be displayed outside Edward Sexton’s store throughout the free-to-attend event that celebrates the long history that car manufacturers and tailors share.

Engineered to offer an exhilarating and rewarding driving experience both on- and off-road, SKYE has been crafted to ensure the utmost capability, refinement and beauty for discerning adventurers. As an all-electric vehicle, it’s powered by a 42kWh battery with anticipated range of 170 miles, with the option to specify an ultra-fast charging battery for full charge in under ten minutes. Measuring 4,047mm in length and 1,900mm in width, and weighing just 1,150kg, it boasts sportscar performance with 0-60mph achieved in under four seconds.

“The CALLUM SKYE is bold, beautifully engineered and crafted with refinement and craftsmanship. The same can be said for the world-leading bespoke tailoring that exists on Savile Row. We can’t wait to see and hear the reactions of event visitors who will be the first to see SKYE in person,” says David Fairbairn, managing director, CALLUM. “Compact, capable and extremely beautiful, we’re confident that this representation of the SKYE exterior will turn heads, as we invite those interested in commissioning a CALLUM SKYE to reserve their build slot.”
