Malaysian TD2000, kit car or fine replacement for original TD ?


Malaysian TD 2000, new generation TD since 1986.

The MG TD is one of the most copied models used for building kit-cars. In the USA you will find more often kit-cars where it can be seen that the MG TD has been the example for the design. Often the cars do not have the right looks compared to the original. Which is of course not easy to copy. Often VW Beetles have been saved from the grave yard to get a second live as a copied Kit-Car TD. The luggage compartment in the front must be useful in this case.

Since 2000 the TD2000 is produced in Malaysia, a kit-car or a serious nowadays production sports car ? It is up to you to decide. Is this the return of the MG TD, or is it just a kit car like al other copies. For sure it is the only car which has a well looking like original radiator shell. Also the complete well known design of the original TD is in good shape on the TD2000. The back lights are not as nice as the originals and could be more classic in design. These do not fit the classic style.

The design of the car is from 1986. Starting from then the TD2000 is manufactured in Australia for the home market. The car is delivered through 70 dealerships of Toyota, because the TD2000 contains an engine from Toyota. In 1998, the owners of TD2000 Pty Ltd (Australia) felt that the company and car could go further with new ownership and indicated that it was available for sale. The availability came to the attention of a group of Malaysian and Australian businessmen who jointly took up the offer to purchase the company.

A new Malaysian-based company (with 70% Malaysian and 30% Australian ownership), known as TD Cars (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., was established and took over all the assets and intellectual properties of TD2000 Pty Ltd. Although the economic crisis in Asia was of concern, they were bullish about the prospects of selling the car in the world market and decided to produce it in Malaysia.

Having the production base in Malaysia was not just for nationalistic reasons, as TD Cars (Malaysia) Managing Director, Edward Teo explains: "The country has a mature automobile manufacturing industry which started from the 1960s. The workforce is skilled and there is a well established and competent network of component suppliers. They supply not just to domestic factories but also to major manufacturers around the world so there is a world-class quality standard."

TD2000, TD Cars (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. modernised it further while retaining the original styling of yesteryear. A state of the art 2.0 litre DOHC EFI 16-valve engine with a matched gearbox made in Japan was chosen and a long term supply agreement was signed with Toyota Tsusho Corporation, the trading arm of Toyota Motor Corporation.

TD Cars (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. has modest production plans in the first few years and expects to sell 90% of its production outside Malaysia. Export sales commenced in May 2001 to Singapore, followed by Australia in December. By mid-2002, Taiwan and Japan were added to the export countries. Todate, other market include Brunei, Egypt, Great Britian, India, Macau Kuwait, New Zealand, Philippines,Singapore and UAE.

"This is a classic sports car with modern engineering and safety features. It has world-class qualities with the latest ADR Certification and we believe those who yearn for the pleasure of the earlier eras of motoring will find our TD2000 a very appealing production to own and use," promises Teo.

About me

My name is Hermann Egges. I am collecting car brochures and advertisements since I was a little child.

First I collected articles and adverts of cars out of news papers and magazines. After that I went to local car dealers to get the brochures of the cars, showed in their show rooms. I was a happy child if I left the dealer with one or more brochures in my hand. These were the first brochures collected, which are still today in my private collection. This means that the collection of brochures starts in the late seventies up till now.

I try to search for people who have the same interest for car advertisemnets and brochures as I do. I would like to share experiences and information and hope to get in contact to interchange brochures with each other. In this way I try to enlarge the private collection of my and the collection of people I get in contact with.

All brochures shown on my web-page are out of my own collection. I have made photographs of them and made collages as shown on the web-page. More than 2.500 advertisements and more than 1.000 brochures are shown at my web page.

I hope you will enjoy my web-page.

Kind Regards

Hermann Egges
