MG Rover has launched a new special edition MG TF for summer – the Spark.

Available with either the 115, 135 or 160PS engines, all Spark SE models feature Gunsmoke and black Alcantara seats and door inserts with a unique embroidered MG octagon badge on the seat backs.

Alloy inserts have appeared on the centre console and on the doors, while the steering wheel gets a new alloy/black leather finish as does the Momo leather/alloy gear knob. There’s chrome for the ashtray and handbrake button, while a windstop keeps your hair in control with the top down and a Sony CDX-2000 CD player (with red illumination, no less) ensures you annoy passers-by.

The exterior gets a chrome ‘Spark’ boot badge, front, side and rear mesh grilles, bright door handles, front fog lamps and Charcoal Grey hood fabric. The specification also includes AP Racing large front disc brakes and callipers, and 11-spoke alloy wheels.

The TF Spark SE is available in four exterior colours: Firefrost red, XPower Grey, Starlight Silver or Sonic Blue.

Only 1000 Spark SEs are being produced for the UK market so, err… hurry.

Prices start at £17,262 for the 115 model.
