The MG F was developed and marketed during turbulent times: Ownership of the MG brand had passed to British Aerospace in 1988, and was sold once more to BMW in 1994. Only 6 years later, a management buyout landed the marque in the newly-founded MG Rover Group, which went into receivership in 2005 and was taken over by the Chinese Nanjing Automobile Group. All four companies were involved in the history of the MG F, which was presented in 1995. A classic two-seater mid-engine roadster, the car featured a 1.8 litre petrol engine with 88 kW (120 hp) in the base version. Stronger engines offered up to 117 kW (159 hp). A facelift in 1999 brought changes to the interior, including seats and centre console. In 2002, the MG F became the MG TF, named after the 1950s TF Midget. For this car, a traditional coil spring suspension replaced the sophisticated Hydragas system of the first generation. The TF was discernible by its new radiator grille, hood and head lights.
The bankruptcy of the MG Rover Group in 2005 brought a temporary end of production, which was resumed in 2007 under the Nanjing ownership, both in Longbridge, as well as in a new Chinese factory. The MG TF remained on offer until 2011.
