1960 MG A Roadster Race Car 1,850cc

A venerable MGA Racer that's been enjoyed on three Continents. GUIDE PRICE: £20,000 - £25,000

The MGA's bodywork was based largely on that of a one-off MG TD, specially built by the MG factory at the request of racing privateer, George Phillips, for Le Mans in 1952. Later, a new chassis was designed enabling the driver to sit lower in the car with even cleaner bodywork and this was known as EX 175. This first prototype, in turn, was developed into EX182 and four of these were built for Le Mans in 1955 with the intention of entering the Production Class as they were, effectively, 'pre-production' MGAs.
