MG has confirmed that its revolutionary new Cyberster sports car will make its global public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2023 this weekend – Thursday July 13th to Sunday July 16th and that the EV roadster will underline its performance credentials by taking on the iconic hill climb throughout the festival.

The dramatic, two-seater convertible will be showcased on the main MG stand, allowing festival-goers to take a close look at its leading-edge interior and exterior styling. A second Cyberster will be stationed in the First Glance paddock and will put on a show as it takes to the hill twice a day over the entire event.

Guy Pigounakis, commercial director for MG Motor UK says: “We’re excited to return to the Festival of Speed and with a global debut. The Cyberster marks MG’s long-awaited return to sports car production and we’re ready to share what that exciting future looks like with this high-performance, technologically-advanced EV.

The Duke of Richmond said: “We are absolutely delighted that MG Motor UK will be returning to Goodwood and honoured that it has chosen the Festival of Speed to host the global debut for the MG Cyberster. With such rich history between Goodwood and MG and ahead of its centenary in 2024, I’m thrilled MG will be so much part of the festival this year.” 

Drawing inspiration from the company’s heritage, Cyberster’s bold styling combines contemporary design with distinctive touches that call on MG’s rich history as a renowned manufacturer of exciting, engaging convertible sports cars.

Signature exterior highlights include a distinctive low nose and curvaceous rear haunches, as well as striking new features including scissor doors and a Kammback tail.

More performance debuts from MG

As well as unveiling the Cyberster, MG will return to Goodwood with two more EV performance cars which will both appear in the First Glance paddock.

The new dual motor MG4 EV XPOWER available to order from July 2023, will make its first public debut at Goodwood.

Priced from £36,495, the range-topping 435PS EV will be the most powerful production MG ever, capable of 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds.

MG has also revealed a third high performance MG will debut during Goodwood Festival of Speed, confirming a new concept car will be shown in the First Glance paddock at the event from Thursday 13th July.

The MG EX4 boldly reimagines the Metro 6R4 rally legend of the 1980s, underpinned by the MG4 EV XPOWER’s electric drivetrain. Designed by MG’s team in London, who played a key role in creating the new MG Cyberster, the EX4 will feature a distinctive livery designed especially for Goodwood and celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Metro 6R4.
