An established Staffordshire car dealership is to become Britain’s newest MG outlet.

Pinkstone Cars in Stoke-on-Trent will open the doors of the first new MG dealership of 2012 in a 2,500 sq ft showroom, opposite the University Hospital of North Staffordshire on February 24.

Managing director Simon Pinkstone said: “We are about to celebrate our silver jubilee and winning the MG franchise for the Stoke area is a fantastic present. We are really proud of this and can’t wait to start introducing the new MG6 models to our customers.

“I’ve driven the car and been to the MG factory in Birmingham and have been deeply impressed. The car offers great value for money coupled with all the hallmarks that have made the MG such an iconic brand.

“It’s a great driver’s car and when people get behind the wheel they can’t fail to be impressed.”

Pinkstones MG, on the A34 a mile from Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre, has a six car showroom and a full service and spares operation.

The new dealership has a staff of seven.
