The MGB started out on the drawing board rather than on the racetrack and was to be the first Abingdon design model with complete unit body construction, as it was felt that considerable weight savings could be achieved. It was said at the time that everything except the Octagon was new. It can be safely said that the MGB was in the very best Abingdon tradition.
