MG “A” roadster

… Let’s Get Those English Girls!

“Une p’tite MG, trois compères, assis dans la bagnole, sous un réverbère, etc.” (“Nouvelle Vague” – a French song from 1959) If Richard Anthony went as far as singing its praises, it is because the MG really was THE car of the New Wave, a symbol of independence…Today, it still offers that same sentiment of freedom…

The British automobile industry of the 60’s decidedly had a “recipe” to manufacture very charming fun little convertibles which weren’t too expensive and above all had a very sporty character. The MG “A” was part of this “lost generation” and is considered today a cult car…

Sitting behind its wheel, one can understand why! The driving experience is very “classic” style all while still being very “relaxed”. The scenery can be enjoyed to the max and with hair in the wind one straight away feels quite comfortable behind the large steering wheel which handles easily. The same goes for the for the gear box. The 1600cc acceleration is excellent. The MG “A” isn’t a “monster” but a formidable car to take for a leisurely drive…

It is the ideal car for the couple holidaying on The Riviera. Jump in the car and go to the beach and then take it for a drive in the backcountry, this car adapts to all situations without a flinch… and as a bonus you will receive “thumb ups” by onlookers all along your drive!

Practical Note: Two comfortable seats and space for your luggage. Starts on a quarter turn whether summer or winter. The MG “A” Roadster is a formidable leisure car without fuss. It is easy to park anywhere and its top raises or lowers in a few seconds so one can take advantage of every ray of sunshine!!! Its 1600cc engine allows one to take to the motorway on long trips. Its roadholding is “sporty” but without being tiring. The brakes are powerful and dependable and its petrol consumption very reasonable for a sports car…
