In 1966 a larger, more up-market model, the Genie, appeared at the London Motor Show.
It could be had with either a 2.5- or 3-litre Ford V6 engine and gearbox with optional overdrive, but the steering and back axle were still BMC units from the MGB. The rear suspension differed from the MG in having coil-spring/damper units and trailing arms.
The 2.5-litre version was dropped in 1968. In 1969 a complete car cost around £2000.
