Nanjing signs Longbridge lease
- 33-year lease signed today
- August get-out clause for car maker
- Car production a step closer
Chinese car manufacturer Nanjing Automobile has signed a long-term lease for the former MG Rover plant at Longbridge in the West Midlands.
The move could restart production of the MG TF sports car in 2007, although the 33-year lease will have a get-out clause allowing Nanjing to leave Longbridge in six months if it fails to find any finance.
Nanjing's UK chairman Wang Hongbiao said: 'This means that we can move forward with our business plan to build cars at Longbridge.'
