Nope, To quote MG-Rover Groups description "As part of the projects weight 
reduction objectives, all body panels are made from lightweight carbon 
fibre..." which brings me to costs, the new MG XPower SV is currently being 
proposed at 65,000 pounds British. This translates as of today, Nov. 6th, 
2002 to approx. 
$105,672.32....As far as its appearance to me it looks rather like an Audi TT 
or a BMW. I really dislike that goofy looking rear wing, it's really a 
departure from the luggage rack on my 1978 MGB. Hey does anybody remember the 
BAT (Alfa) series of Italian show cars ...BAT 5 comes to my mind.
Albert Escalante ~ 1978 MGB
