I love that car. One came up for sale on Ebay last year and went for the mid $20's I think. Pretty good deal, really. Its more beautiful than the GT, looks a bit more Continental or European, sort of like the baby Aston Martin the GT was supposed to be. I think MG decided against it as a production car because it looked too Italian and because it would require retooling to produce too many different panels for the GT, while the Pininfarina GT design they opted for retained most of the roadster panels. Never seen one in person but I'd love to.

The red car in the first post is a Coune MG hard top with a modified front end. It is not the Berlinette like in all the other pictures.
See more Coune models here: COACHBUILD.com - Jacques Coune
