When Rover at the Geneva Fair in 1995 presented the MGF it marked the revival of the classic MG-mark of two-seat sportscars.
The new car was the result of four years of developement together with the Mayflower Motor Panel Company of Coventry that manufactures all the panels. All assembling is made at the Rover factory at Longbridge.

The engine is developed from the 1.6 litres K-series engine. The 1.8i VVC engine have a new Variable Valve Control system. It's placed mid-car and operates the rear wheels.

The hood is made by Pininfarina, and a hardtop is optional. This hardtop can be mounted with the hood down.
