An Answer to a Question No One Asked

MGB/GT. The successful "closing" of the MGB roadster by legendary Italian deign house Pininfarina has been declared the inspiration for a new MG SUV concept called Icon rolled out at the Beijing Auto Show over the weekend. A toned-down version of the four door concept is likely headed to production at some point in the future with build taking place either in China or the UK Longbridge assembly site.

The concept uses an almost perfect re-creation of the chrome MGB grille and similar angles of the rear roofline as carefully pointed out in the press releases and presentation at the unveiling. The most jarring aspect of the concept is the use of the older car's bumper overriders as inspiration for the running and fog lights.
