Description

The MGB was a very modern design at the time of its introduction, utilizing a monocoque structure instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction used on both the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB’s rival, the Triumph TR series. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. The MGB’s performance was considered brisk at the time of its introduction, with a 0–60 mph time of just over 11 seconds, aided by the relatively light weight of the car, which also ensured that handling was one of the MGB’s strong points. The roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced. The body was a two-seater roadster but a small (to say the least) rear seat was a rare option at one point. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more and better passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA.
