Nanjing doesn't even own MG Rover yet and it's already ordering sketches of two possible new MGs it would build if its bid is accepted. Auto Express has absolutely no details on these vehicles, which appear to be a two-door hatchback and mid-engine coupe. Nanjing is currently in competition with long-time bidder Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. and, as reported by Auto Express, some guy named David James. It isn't clear what the next owner of MG Rover will actually be buying, as we've previously reported on PriceWaterhouseCoopers' plan to break up the company and sell it off, as well as Honda's tactical mission to retrieve its equipment and destroy its designs that were in MG Rover's possession when it collapsed.
