The Chinese owners of defunct British carmaker MG Rover have confirmed that car production will resume at the former MG Rover factory in Longbridge. Nanjing Automotive will build cars in China and the U.K., with Autocar suggesting that the MG TF Roadster (right) is the most likely vehicle to come out of the Longbridge plant.

A formal press conference is scheduled for the British Motor Show later in July.
