Just came across this (found in german forum):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Beat

"The design of the car originated from Pininfarina, who then sold the design plan to Honda, and then in turn sold it on MG Rover who used it to build the MG F."

Please tell me this is rubbish, I've read other things, discuss !

Edit: further link to Pininfarina stated "roof structure only" and I know about Gerry McGovern ;)

I could think of worse things........

Take a look down the list, we're in pretty good company.

Although, you should note, that until a few weeks ago, Wikipedia had Tony Blair's middle name as 'whoopdido'. It is far from a reliable source.

I know the Beat looks familiar to the F but never heard about this story. Is it true?

I thought MG Exe was the main insparation.

I sooo wish the EXE was put into production! Imagine how good a 2005 model would look!

I wonder what parts (if any) are shared between the Honda Beat and MGf then. :rolleyes:
