So we finally got the new MST Mk1 out of the factory for its first road test and we are very pleased to say that the car ran really well, very responsive and the all steel 2.0L BDG engine is very lively. A big milestone in the journey of bringing the Mk1 back on the road as a new car, the first since 1975. Next will be the final preparations for the IVA test in September and we hope to be able to officially launch the Mk1 in October on a 71 plate.
