Sports cars are the talk of the tea room at ClassicLine’s Hinckley HQ this week…but what is it about these small, usually two seater cars that we love so much? Their sprinted performance, nimble handling, stylish aerodynamics or the fact they are just pure fun to drive? Well, it’s all of the above! So, after a full throttle discussion over the Bourbon biscuits, we have come up with a few favourites to look at closer this week.
To start us off, the MGB. A two-door sports car by the British Motor Corporation, later British Leyland. Replacing the MGA, the MGB was built as a four-cylinder, soft top roadster from 1962 until 1980 - variants also included the eight-cylinder 2+2 coupé, the MGB GT V8. At the end of the 18-year production run, some 387,675 four-cylinder MGB roadsters and 125,597 GT coupes were built. Did you know that those rather unsubtle Bayflex black bumpers that were introduced from 1975 onwards extended the cars length by more than 5 inches?
The MGB is the perfect introductory sports car. You feel close to the ground giving an exhilarating driving experience. With an average 0-60mph in just over 12 seconds…if its good enough for Prince Charles, it’s good enough for us!
