The MG Cyberster is the brand’s flagship 2-door fully electric sports car, representing an exquisite combination of futuristic design and exhilarating performance. Its captivating aesthetics – envisioned by a joint collaboration between the company’s London-based design studio and SAIC Design Centre Shanghai. The Cyberster comes with a distinctive low nose and curvaceous rear haunches, as well as striking scissor doors and a Kammback tail.

Driven by the Turner twins, the MG Cyberster commenced its journey from London’s Westminster Bridge, UK to Shanghai, China, in September, 2023. The British identical twins, Ross and Hugo Turner, are professional adventurers and having rowed across the Atlantic Ocean and traversed Greenland’s Ice Cap, they are looking to add another feather to their cap with this unique journey.

Ross Turner said: “Our mission is to explore the world with purpose and innovation. Our visit in the Cyberster to various countries in the Middle East is a thrilling chapter in the story of this 10,000-mile global road trip. We're excited to share this experience with communities and enthusiasts, helping to foster a new era of electrifying exploration.” The twins’ mission is to help people learn about MG’s world through new technology and purposeful expeditions.

The Cyberster will be touring the Middle East from January 14th until February 19th, delving into the cultural splendour of all the Gulf countries along the way. The road trip itinerary will include special stopovers at local landmarks in major cities in Saudi Arabia (Riyadh and Jeddah), Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi), and Oman.

Tom Lee, Managing Director of MG Motor’s Middle East operations, commented: "The MG Cyberster's venture across the Middle East will be a demonstration of the Middle East's readiness for electric vehicles as it harnesses the electric charging infrastructure along the way. This journey will also stand as a milestone as the MG brand pays homage to its 100 Year anniversary while highlighting the vintage-inspired Cyberster's capabilities to communities and enthusiasts across the region.”

The Middle East holds a pivotal place in MG's global activation strategy, and the arrival of the MG Cyberster signifies the brand's resolute commitment to introducing avant-garde electric mobility solutions to diverse markets worldwide. With the MG Cyberster leading the charge, the brand, which is revered for its rich heritage of innovation and 2-door sportscars, envisions the cultivation of a global community, a world where electrifying technology converges with environmental responsibility.

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.

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.”
