History

The MG F (and TF as they later became known) are (as we have already commented on in the past many times) modern classics, and they have been in production since 1995 and in the years since have weathered a number of storms that promised to end production for good. MG is such an iconic brand that when the F was first introduced it was actually the first brand new vehicle that bore the MG badge since the 1962 MG MGB that ceased production in 1980.

2005 proved to be something of a crisis year for MG with the current TF being cancelled as MG Rover entered receivership. Fortunately the vehicle proved so popular it was brought back to sate the needs of automotive enthusiasts the world over in 2007 when the companies new owners realised how much in demand the TF actually was.

The MG F and TF represent the first real sports car produced by the company since 1980 when British Leyland ceased production in Oxford. Even though the MG badge was still kept in existence it was simply applied to existing vehicles; no new MG cars were produced.

Small, limited runs of the MGB and RV8 convinced the company that there was a marked eagerly awaiting a new MG and thus the F and TF were born. The TF actually denotes a newer version of the F; the MF TF came into existence in 2002 and represented a step forward and a whole slew of upgrades compared to the F.

When the MG F was in production it was overseen by the Rover Special Projects Group who had the final say on the aesthetic design and engineering of the new car. The initial design concept existed as early as 1991, however this was refined, improved, tweaked and altered to make it a much more comfortable vehicle to use on a day to day basis. A number of new technologies were introduced on the MG F such as the Hydragas suspension system.

This fuses both fluid and gas and it is easily adjustable allowed for tuning at a later date in order to turn the stock comfortable ride into something stiffer and more suitable for use on the track.

After its introduction the MG F hit the top spot and was celebrated by both journalists and drivers alike, and many proclaimed it as the number one affordable sports car in the UK, and it was only knocked off the top spot by the TF version of the vehicle in 2002! By 1997 it was felt that some improvements were needed, and in order to squeeze even more performance from the MG F a supercharger was fitted that added more horsepower (and decreasing the 0-60mph time by three whole seconds) and the brakes were upgraded to cope with the extra performance. SP Performance even went so far as to refer to this new version of the MG F as the affordable supercar, a moniker that has stuck to the whole line throughout its existence.
