Distinctive look for the MG6 special edition, celebrating MG's success in the 2012 BTCC championship

MG is celebrating its 2012 BTCC season - where its driver Jason Plato finished third overal with six race wins - with a special-edition version of the MG6 hatch.

The MG6 GT BTCC Edition starts from £16,995 and gets a matte black roof and 18-inch alloys, with a black gloss finish for the side sills, door mirrors, front and rear lower bumpers and rear spoiler. A BTCC badge on the front grille, bonnet decals in team colours and 'BTCC Edition' graphics on the door sills and dashboard finish off the makeover.

Standard equipment includes sat-nav, front sports seats, electric mirrors and rear parking sensors, while two exterior colours are available - Arctic White or Union Blue.

Power comes from a 158bhp 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol engine, capable of sending it from 0-62mph in 8.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 120mph.

As an extra incentive, anyone who buys the BTCC Edition before the end of the year will receive a pair of VIP hospitaility tickets to a race in 2013, which includes a grid walk, pit lane experience and a MG KX Momentum team jacket and hat.
