MG MGB Cabriolet
The classic MG MGB
The MGB is a sports car launched by MG Cars in May 1962 to replace the MGA. Introduced as a 4-cylinder roadster, the car also got a coupe with 2+2 seats in 1965. In addition, the 6-cylinder MGC was added in 1967 as an extra variant.
Production MGB production continued until October 1980, alternately by the British Motor Corporation and its successors, British Motor Holdings and British Leyland Motor Corporation.
At the time of the MGB's introduction, it was a relatively modern design, with a monocoque structure rather than the traditional body-on-frame construction used in both the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB's rival, the Triumph TR series. . The lightweight design reduced production costs while increasing overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows and a comfortable driver's compartment with plenty of legroom were standard. A parcel shelf came behind the seats.
MGB performance was considered solid at the time of its introduction, with a 0-60mph time of just over 11 seconds, aided by the car's relatively low weight. A majority of the MGBs were exported to the United States. When US air pollution emission standards became stricter in 1974, the MGBs for the US market had to be de-tuned. In addition to a significant reduction in performance, the chrome bumpers were replaced by rubber bumpers (for all markets).
The MGB was one of the first cars to have controlled crumple zones to protect the driver and passenger.
The production volume of MGB, MGC and MGB V8 models was 523,836 cars. A very limited "revival" model, with only 2,000 units, called the RV8, was produced by Rover in the 1990s. Despite the outward resemblance to the roadster, the RV8 had less than 5 percent parts interchangeability with the original car.
