MG is making good use of the heritage. The even got the MGB GT V8 there, manufactured from 1973 until 1976 and underpowered  by a 3.5 liter V8 with… 137hp! Torque however was all right with 262nm.

Interior looks solid but not as exciting as the exterior. It is all a bit too gray. Seats kinda hip.

Very clear screen. The MG GT will be equipped with a permanent 3G internet connection, TV, and a full-spec infotainment system.

Engines now. No V8 but a 1.5 turbo and a 1.4 turbo. The latter is GM-sourced and delivers 156hp and 235nm, mated to a new seven-speed DCT. The 1.5 turbo is a well-known and slightly old MG power plant with 129hp and 210nm, it will be mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. The 1.5 turbo will be positioned below the 1.4 turbo. Size: 612mm/1804mm/1488mm, wheelbase is 2650.

The MG GT looks like a fastback but is a sedan. Wheels look awfully small.

Rear light defines rear. Exhaust pipes are hidden on the right side of the high riding black bumper.

The 1.4T was a co development between MG and GM rather than just being sourced from GM as you state
