"A break with tradition "
Driven by Elvis Presley in “Blue Hawaii”, and the choice of Petula Clark, the MG A was born out of the prototypes from the 1955 24 hours of Le Mans and manufactured in the purest tradition of the English roadsters. One of the first sports models created by Cecil Kimber, the charismatic founder of the MG brand (Morris Garage), it was a breakthrough in its time. Being light (both the doors and the bonnet were made of aluminium), its performance was remarkable for its era, achieving 100km/h in 15 seconds and able to hit 160 kmh. With its sensual, curved silhouette and its relative ease of driving, the MG A represented technology advances in terms of comfort, performance, security and, of course, design.
