STORY

In 1930 and 1931 this model participated in Le Mans as a Super Charge model.

This vehicle is suitable for the Mille Miglia.

Motorisation in England was much more advanced than on the continent. Market niches had already opened up for particularly powerful small roadsters. During the Great Depression, these small vehicles met the public's tastes exactly.

The MG brand was particularly well represented in this segment with the M-Type. A total of 3,235 vehicles of this series were produced.

27 hp for the weight of a modern luxury motorcycle results in very good driving dynamics. When you are exposed to the wind at a top speed of 105 km/h with the top open, you certainly won't be craving more power!

And if you then take advantage of its good roadholding at rallies and show the exhaust to larger and more powerful vehicles, you are sure to receive the admiration of other participants. Pure driving pleasure at a reasonable entry-level price, inexpensive maintenance and a stable investment.

PERSONAL STORY

The vehicle was first delivered in Dublin to a well-known businessman who used it for five years. It was then owned by an English officer until after the war.

During the Second World War, he was afraid that he might be robbed of all his belongings. So he decided to wall up this little classic in his own four walls.

When the war was over, this wall was torn down and the first trip was probably enjoyed safely.

The entire life story is known and unusually well documented.

The vehicle was technically and visually excellently restored in the mid-nineties and still presents itself immaculately in its open body.
