The UK ads for the MG-ZT promise 'fire breathing, full bodied, red blooded' pleasures. In a country where driving fast is as socially acceptable as puffing a Cuban cigar in a children's hospital, MG's message is welcome news for petrolheads.

Or is it an empty marketing exercise, shamelessly exploiting one of motor sport's most distinguished marques?
