Cheap MG Rover cars to go on sale
MG Rover
Administrators will give an update on the company on Friday
Reduced price MG Rover cars go on sale on Friday as administrators begin to get rid of the last of the stock.

Brindley Garages Group in Wolverhampton is just one of a few dealerships across the UK to take possession of some of the final cars to be sold.

Managing director Mike Corbett said prices would be cut by up to half on some models and all vehicles would come with a 12-month warranty.

MG Rover collapsed in April leading to thousands of jobs losses.

Administrators PriceWaterhouseCooper are to give an update on the company's situation on Friday.

There has been more interest in their products than ever before
Dealership director Mike Corbett
Mr Corbett said the interest in MG Rover cars had been "unprecedented" since the company's collapse.

"There has been more interest in their products than ever before. There is a great loyalty to them in this area," he said.

"There has never been a manufacturer of their size to have gone bust."

He said the administrators had invited tenders from dealerships across the country to start selling the last of the cars.

A spokesman for the Society of Motor Manufacturers said the sale could only be good for the consumer.
