One of the most popular standard British roadsters from the ’60s is the MG B. MG presented the B in 1962 as the successor to the MG A, which helped establish the roadster class in the U.S. By the standards of the day, the MG B was a reasonably modern car with unibody construction and a roomy interior, as well as a decent suspension and steering (via Retro Motor).
Some contemporary tests consider the MG B underpowered. 95 HP from a 1.8-liter engine certainly isn’t much since the car weighs only 2,200 pounds. But for those who want more power, MG introduced their model C with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder and 145 HP and the MG B GT with a 3.5-liter V8 engine, which was available only in coupe form. However, neither of those cars will provide drivers with any actual performance nowadays.
