the sports car today is an mga

  • The MGA was a sports car produced by MG from 1955-1962.
  • Over its life more than 100,000 examples were produced, with the vast majority being exported to overseas markets. A mere 5,869 units were delivered to the UK.
  • Over the course of production, the MGA was offered with various different B-Series engines, including the 1,489cc and the 1,598cc. Later years of production also saw the “Twin-Cam”.
  • All cars were offered with a four speed manual, with some being offered with overdrive.
  • Rack and pinion steering delivered a direct and confident drive, while the suspension was fully independent to further improve the driving experience.
  • Our ‘works inspired’ MGA Coupe has been completely rebuilt with historic rallying in mind.
  • The current owner has gone to every length to ensure the car will deliver in all terrains and conditions.
