In 1966 a larger upmarket model, the Genie appeared at the London Motor Show. It had either a 2.5 or 3 litre Ford V6 engine and gear box with optional overdrive but the steering and back axle were still BMC units from the MGB. The rear suspension differed from the MG however, with coil spring/damper units and trailing arms.

The 2.5 litre version was dropped in 1968.

In 1969 a complete car cost around £2000.
