STORY

The MG A was developed by the MG Division of Morris Garages and produced between 1955 and 1962. The car was introduced as the successor to the MG TF and represented a new era for the brand.

With its elegant and timeless design, the MG A quickly became a popular sports car of the 1950s. The car was available in several body styles, including a roadster and a coupe.

A notable feature of the MG A was its independent front suspension, which provided improved driving dynamics. The roadster was equipped with a folding roof, which emphasized the open-top driving pleasure.

During its production life, the MG A was entered in numerous motorsport events and achieved several successes, including class wins in prestigious races such as the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The MG A enjoyed great popularity among car enthusiasts around the world, both for its sporty performance and its attractive design.

PERSÖNLICHE GESCHICHTE

This MG A has been in the family since the beginning. The sister of the museum founder Manfred Rotschne received it for her wedding to her husband Franco in Italy.

It has been in the possession of the museum founder since the 1980s and has traveled extensively at home and abroad.

What is special about this MG are the original red leather seats, a very special patina that makes this MG even more nostalgic.

One of the most authentic classics. Uncomplicated, dynamic and probably the museum's most emotional treasure.
