"A break with tradition "
Driven in Blue Hawaii by the King Himself, Elvis Presley, as well as being the preferred choice of Petula Clark, the MG A was born out of the prototypes from the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans and manufactured in strict accordance with the English roadster tradition. Although designed in the spirit of the first sports models created by Cecil Kimber, the enigmatic founder of the MG (Morris Garage) brand, it was in fact an utter breakaway from the trends of the time. Lightweight (with both the doors and bonnet made of aluminium), it delivered a remarkable performance for its era, reaching 100 km/h in 15 seconds and a maximum speed of 160 km/h. With its sensual, curved silhouette and its relative ease of driving, the MG A represented technological advances in terms of comfort, performance, safety and, of course, design.
