MG TF Cool Blue with optional tonneau cover Tracy Shaw, star of the daring play ‘The Blue Room’ which features the ‘famous’ nude scenes, is trying out MG’s latest model, the TF ‘Cool Blue’ Special Edition. The former Coronation Street star says: "The latest MG TF Cool Blue Special Edition lets me take open top motoring to a new level!"

The new TF Cool Blue SE has a high level specification with a distinctive blue hood and unique Alcantara® blue seats. All models feature a Momo® leather/alloy gear knob, leather steering wheel, wind stop and ash grey facia. The ‘Cool Blue’ SE exterior is set off by its blue hood, attractive six-spoke 16" alloy wheels, chrome grille pack and front fog lamps.

Tracy is trying the first of the 600 special editions now available in showrooms throughout the UK. The Cool Blue SE is available in a choice of cool exterior colours: Trophy Blue pearlescent, Starlight Silver or Anthracite metallic.

The on-the-road price is £16,995 for the MG TF 115 Cool Blue SE and £18,495 for the more powerful MG TF 135 Cool Blue SE.

Tracy Shaw and her ‘Cool Blue’ TF are touring in David Hare's The Blue Room across the UK in Eastbourne, Londonderry, Cork, Brighton, Milton Keynes, Edinburgh, Wolverhampton, Stoke, Darlington and Salford.

The world's most beautiful cabriolet?

The MG TF has been judged the ‘World’s Most Beautiful Cabriolet’ at the awards ceremony held by L’Automobile più Bella del Mondo, in Milan. A panel of 13 international judges, made up from design experts outside the automotive industry, credited MG TF with the class win ‘for blending great originality and typical elements of MG tradition, with a strong casual and dynamic character’.

The World’s Most Beautiful Automobile title is an established award, now in its 10th year. It recognises design significance from a non-automotive perspective. Judges included leading art critic Bruno Alfieri and art-photographer Gianni Berengo Gardin. Thirty-three car product designs are judged in nine categories.

John Sanders, sales & marketing director, said: "This accolade is an outstanding achievement particularly in the light of such an impressive body of judges and another example of how the company’s talented styling and engineering teams have developed the MG TF into a car of both substance and style."

The Rover 75 won the high-class saloon category in 1999. The MG TF has also been awarded ‘Cabrio of the Year’ at last year’s Geneva Motor Show and recently performed exceptionally well in Euro NCAP tests with a four-star occupant and three-star pedestrian result. It is available in four specification models, priced between £15,750 and £19,995.
