I'm from the UK too. I think Nanjing have been very clever. They have purchased several household names from what was once the 3rd biggest car maker in the world. Yes they are missing Triumph and Rover, but Austin, MG, Morris, Wolseley are all brands known and respected all over the world. They have got some fairly up to date engine technology and in the ZT a world class car platform. The TF was the best selling sportscar in the UK and the ZR the best selling hot hatch. If Nanjing can't make it with this lot then I have no hope for any of the other Chinese car makers. The world is watching how China deals with MG Rover now. Will if fix the badges on world beating cars or on poorly designed and build cars? This is China's big test....
