History

Inspired by George Phillips’ MG TD-based 1951 Le Mans special and refined by Sydney Enever and his design team, the MGA debuted in September 1955 as a radical departure for MG. Successful experiments with a supercharged twin-cam engine and the desire for a competition-oriented model spurred development of the MGA Twin-Cam, released for sale in early 1958. A significant performance leap, the 1,600 cc twin-cam engine delivered top speeds in excess of 110 mph, matched by improved gearbox ratios, a higher final drive, Dunlop four-wheel disc brakes, and strong yet lightweight disc-type “knock-off” wheels. Only 2,111 Twin-Cam MGA’s were built through early 1960, and the model remains one of the most coveted and satisfying British sports cars produced.
