According to the B'ham Evening Post the Saudi Ambassador to London flew into Longbridge today (he's got a Helicopter). The Saudi Ambassador also happens to be a Prince. Apparantly he loves car and was given the full Longbridge tour. They showed him the latest range and wheeled out some of the classics too. According to Longbridge, the tour had nothing to do with the Saudi's investing in MGR but had more to do with selling a lot more cars in Saudi.

MGR seem to have a lot going on in the Middle East. So far they have talked to Iran and Libya about possible new deals. So it does make you wonder if they are up to something....the Hunter 75??? :lol:

You´ve got it all wrong, chaps.

The ambassador (is he an Austin hatchback?) went to Longbridge because his son asked the ambassador to buy him a cowboy outfit for Christmas!
