MG MGA ROADSTER 1959 - Full test drive in top gear - Engine sound | SCC TV
Recently we came across this beautiful MG A Roadster 1959 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one! The MGA design dates back to 1951, when MG designer Syd Enever created a streamlined body for George Philips' TD Le Mans car. The problem with this car was the high seating position of the driver because of the limitations of using the TD chassis. A new chassis was designed with the side members further apart and the floor attached to the bottom rather than the top of the frame sections. A prototype was built and shown to the BMC chairman Leonard Lord. He turned down the idea of producing the new car as he had just signed a deal with Donald Healey to produce Austin-Healey cars two weeks before. Falling sales of the traditional MG models caused a change of heart, and the car, initially to be called the UA-series, was brought back. As it was so different from the older MG models it was called the MGA, the "first of a new line" to quote the contemporary advertising. There was also a new engine available, therefore the car did not have the originally intended XPAG unit but was fitted with the BMC corporate B-Series type allowing a lower bonnet line. The MGA convertible had no exterior door handles, however the coupe has door handles. It was a body-on-frame design and used the straight-4 "B series" engine from the MG Magnette saloon driving the rear wheels through a 4-speed gearbox. Suspension was independent with coil springs and wishbones at the front and a rigid axle with semi-elliptic springs at the rear. Steering was by rack and pinion. The car was available with either wire-spoked or steel-disc road wheels.

MG 6 hatchback review - CarBuyer
MG 6 hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1dc1Zdn Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb As MG's first new model under Chinese owners, the 6 has plenty to prove. Thankfully, the handling is agile and there's plenty on offer for keen drivers. It's just a shame that the interior quality isn't quite up to that offered by rivals and there's only one engine to choose from. With the introduction of the 1.9-litre diesel in 2012 the 6 will become a much more attractive all-round proposition.
MG3 review - First Car
The MG3 might not be your first choice when it comes to buying a small car, but with a bargain basement price tag and a good driving experience, is MG's latest offering good enough to measure up to the competition? Website: http://www.firstcar.co.uk
