Description

Announced in 1955 to replace the TF the MGA was a radical change compared with the older cars. It had a streamlined and curvaceous full-width body. This was a car in need of extra performance and in 1958 the Twin-Cam came with a twin-overhead-camshaft, 1588cc version of the B-series engine. Like many other short run vehicles the Twin-Cam has attained cult status and is much sought after. The cars to benefit from this development were the later 1600 and Mk II with larger engines and good performance. This is a book of contemporary road tests, new model introductions, specification and technical data, driver's reports, racing, record breaking, touring, buying second hand and history. Models covered include: 1489cc, CoupT, EX181, 1588cc Twin Cam, Peco Supercharged, 1600, 1600 MkII, MkII Competition.
