MG centenary to take centre stage at Goodwood

MG will headline the legendary Central Feature display at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed as the iconic brand celebrates its centenary. The company’s highly anticipated Cyberster EV roadster will headline as the company takes centre stage in front of Goodwood House for the first time.

Arriving in the summer, the Cyberster is a new generation of performance cars that “marks an electrifying milestone” in MG’s storied history. It promises to be among the most exciting parts of MG’s celebration at one of the world’s most prestigious motoring events.

The Cyberster will be joined outside Goodwood House by one of its most legendary ancestors, a stunning 1964 Mk1 MGB Roadster. Power for that car comes from a 1.8-litre BMC engine while the new car uses electric power to propel itself. It boasts dual electric motors that allow it to accelerate to 60mph from rest in less than 4 seconds in the more powerful version and batteries that offer over 300 miles of range on a single charge. Its interior is also a world apart from the old car as it features the latest technology and luxuries.

The two roadsters from different eras are both set to play a prominent role at the Festival of Speed.

MG also plans a comeback to the famous hill climb in 2024 and the firm will announce further debuts for the Festival of Speed closer to the date.

Watch this space as more details will be revealed ahead of the event which takes place from 11th to 14th July, 2024, at the Goodwood Estate in South Sussex. Tickets are available from goodwood.com.
