I think it is more and more visable that Nanjing is not at all interested in the sporty image of MG, it just wants to produce a kind of Rover vehicles, aiming at the same "English" image as Shanghai (Roewe). That's why they speak about 'Modern Englishman', that's why they choose the Rover grille for their MG 7, that's why they are interested in the Streetwise. Initially they didn't plan to make the TF, the foreigners are so interested in the revival of the TF.

Yes you are right, Windy, they write about the glorious and sportive past of MG, (they even use photos of old MG's on their website) but I think these writings about MG's past are opposit their present "British gentleman" strategy in China. But maybe I am wrong or maybe they are changing their minds, as they did with the survival of the TF.
(Yes, I surely know you can drive fast with an MG, as my MG ZT-T 260 can prove you and as they proved with it, 359 km/h in Utah)
