Description

‘…’This is one of the world’s official dream machines’ – Chris Evans

‘…One customer has traded in a recent 911 for an Abingdon – and we can see why’ David Lillywhite. Octane Magazine

‘…This is an astonishing car, developed to a modern, big-name car manufacturer’s levels’ John Simister, Octane Magazine

 

Frontline Developments was established in 1991 by Tim Fenna with a personal remit to improve the underpinnings and ultimately enhance the driving experience of classic MG cars. The key ethos however was to create this ultimate driving machine without losing any of the character or charm when sat behind the wheel of these iconic cars.

 

Almost 25 years on and the accolade gained through some of the world’s greatest motoring press, drivers and fellow design engineers is unrivalled proof that Tim’s vision, dedication and hard work have not only been accepted but hailed as some of the greatest creations of this decade.

 

This extremely impressive example was a personal trackday model, which was built and developed to the tune of over £100,000. The heart of the car is a full race-specification forged and lightened 1800cc VVT motor, which when mated to the Rotrex supercharger delivers an astounding 412bhp at peak power. All this power is handled by a Quaiffe sequential gearbox, which changes through the gears at sub 3 seconds to 60 miles per hour. The level of power was deemed too much for spoked wheels, so period Dunlop race-inspired wheels are fitted on each corner. All of this painstaking development work has produced quite possibly the fastest MGB in the world!

 

This incredible MG by Frontline is offered at a fraction of the build cost, and supplied with a thick file of invoices and a UK V5 document.
