Welcome to The MG Rover Brand website. Our website is here to provide anyone who is interested with a one stop portal containing all the information and links about The MG Rover Brand that they could need. From the turn of the century MG Rover manufactured and sold a broad range of cars under both the Rover and the MG marques. However in the spring of 2005, a proposed takeover deal with a company called SAIC that was required to save the company collapsed at the last minute, for reasons that remain unclear to this day, and are still hotly debated. Many people maintain that the United Kingdom government were to blame because they failed to help the company secure the bridging finance that the takeover company, SAIC, wanted, while others actually believe that the government actively played a role in the destroying of the deal through the deliberate undermining of the directors of MG Rover during the most critical negotiation stages. SAIC now own the MG brand anyway, after the company was broken up.
So for mysterious reasons the takeover deal failed and MG Rover Group was forced to go into administration the very next day, which resulted in around six and a half thousand people immediately losing their jobs, and countless others following suit thereafter as a result of the ensuing fallout in the manufacturer’s network of dealers.
