    Presents the MG3 Trophy Championship Car which was present this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
    The car looks pretty good in his livery and hopefully will have the performance to compete too and win races.

    The MG supermini gets his 90th-birthday boost, the 90th logo could been seen on the place of the license plate, for those you wants know what the 90th means.

    Chinese-owned MG has introduced a new concept car called MG3 Trophy Championship at the Goodwood Festival of Speed that is taking place this weekend in England.

    Visually, the 3 Trophy Championship stands out from the stock MG3 sub-compact hatchback thanks to aerodynamic upgrades like a front splitter, side skirts and an oversized trunk-mounted spoiler. Black 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped by low-profile tires and a two-tone flat red and black paint job wrap up the visual updates.

    Pictures of the interior were not published but MG promises the 3 Trophy packs a full roll cage, a built-in fire extinguisher and a quick-release steering wheel. Bucket seats presumably come standard, and the bulk of the 3's sound deadening material has been removed in order to shed precious pounds.

    Power comes from a modified version of the regular-production 3's 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that has been upgraded with a re-programmed ECU, high-profile cams, billet aluminum pistons and a turbocharger cooled by an intercooler. The mill sends 207 horsepower - about 100 horsepower more than its naturally-aspirated counterpart - and 191 lb-ft. of torque to the front wheels via a limited-slip differential.

    MG says it asked its engineers to build the 3 Trophy Championship concept in order to find out whether British enthusiasts are interested in participating in a one-make race series. The event will kick off next year if the concept generates enough positive feedback.
