MGB GT (1971)
The inspiration of British sports cars. For a whole generation, it was an affordable, practical and highly popular car from the British motoring industry, with a production quantity of over half a million. Every inch of its body is beaming with traditional British culture. The touch and feel are typical and literally unsuppressable.
Its design concept was so ahead of its time when MGB was launched in 1962 that the company kept its production all the way from 1965 to 1980, with practically no major changes, only minor updates. It was the best selling MG back then, and one of nowadays collectors’ favourites.
The GT version of MGB featured a fixed roof greenhouse in sporty hatchback style, which was a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina, an Italian car designer firm which also works for many other renowned brands like Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat etc. This design combined the practicality of a station wagon with the beauty and style of a coupe. Thanks to its good aerodynamic shape, the top speed of the MGB GT is faster than its Roadster version by 8 kph.
Presented by A.K.A. Automotive, this MGB GT is wearing the iconic British Racing Green paint. This car has the optional overdrive gearbox, which was only fitted to less than 20% of all variants of MGBs. It also came with a very British Webasto style ragtop fabric sunroof. This car was restored a while ago, and the interior is still in very good condition.
