Over in the UK, MG has introduced a special edition of its MG6 fastback to celebrate its successful return to the BTCC saloon car racing series.

The road-going MG6 BTCC Edition is powered by a 1.8 litre turbo engine delivering 160 PS, good enough to give it a 0 to 100 km/h time of 8.4 seconds and an electronically-limited 193 km/h top speed.

To remind its owner of those BTCC leanings, the car sports a BTCC badge on the front grille, and there are distinctive MG KX Momentum Racing team colours decals slapped on the bonnet extension, front doors and wings. Elsewhere, BTCC Edition graphics are highlighted on the sills and on the passenger side fascia inside the car.

Standard to this one are a matte black roof and 18-inch alloys wrapped with Dunlop Sport 225/45 performance tyres. Also on, black gloss sills, door mirror covers, a lower front air dam and a rear spoiler, plus a choice of Arctic White or Union Blue exterior shades.
