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.
