MG MGB GT Coupe
The MGB GT Coupe was introduced in October 1965. Production continued until 1980, though export to the US ceased in 1974. The MGB GT Coupe sported a ground-breaking greenhouse designed by Pininfarina and launching the sporty "hatchback" style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the B GT offered the utility of a station wagon while retaining the style and shape of a coupe.
This new configuration was a 2+2 design with a right-angled rear bench seat and far more luggage space than in the roadster. Relatively few components differed, although the MGB GT Coupe did receive different suspension springs and anti-roll bars and a different windscreen which was more easily and inexpensively serviceable. Early prototypes such as the MGB Berlinette produced by the Belgian coach builder Jacques Coune utilized a raised windscreen in order to accommodate the fastback.

Acceleration of the GT was slightly slower than that of the roadster due to its increased weight. Top speed improved by 5 mph to 105 mph due to better aerodynamics.
