The MG TF was a 2002 restyling of the MGF roadster, which had been introduced in 1995. It was produced until 2006, when its parent company went bankrupt. After the bankruptcy of MG Rover in 2006, Nanjing Automobile Group of China acquired some of the company’s assets and started production of the MG TF in China for the Chinese market. Assembly of the model for the European market was restarted in 2008 in the original MG Rover factory in Longbridge (UK), assembling CKD (Complete Knock Down) kits from the Chinese production line, but after a brief production stop in the last quarter of 2009, production was finally ended in the first half of 2011, as sales remained low. A total of just 906 “Chinese” TFs were assembled at Longbridge
