It appears the closure of British mark, MG Rover back in 2005 was not the end for the iconic brand. Chinese automaker Nanjing Automobile Group, who purchased the company for just over 50 million pounds, plans to manufacture cars under the brand and even send exports to the US. According to sources close to Nanjing, there are even plans for manufacturing in the US as well.

This could be a case of wishful thinking. Pictured here is a concept that never even got pass the drawing board, so it might just be a little early to be planning the purchase of an MG.

Yu Jianwei, managing director of Nanjing, is expected to talk up the company at the British International Motor Show in London on July 17. We will keep you posted.

On a side note, MG, which is short for Morris Garages, has been building cars since 1923. The first MGs came to the United States in volume in 1947 and continued selling until 1980.
