Apparently those nice chaps at BMW have agreed to allow Nanjing to use all the BMW proprietary technology previously used in the Rover 75/MG ZT in the MG7 - things like the M47R diesel engine in 114bhp and 131bhp states of tune, certain elements of the electrical system derived from the previous 3-series and the front-drive variant of the famed Z-axle rear suspension.

Well, it's been rumoured that quite a lot of the old Rover 75 production line remains in Longbridge, so it seems likely that European market MG7's will eventually be assembled there using parts sourced from China.
