by David Knowles
In the wake of the demise of the MG Midget and MGB, there seemed little prospect for the MG badge beyond being used as a kind of "GTi" badge for various Austins and Rovers. However, thanks to the determination of a few people - and an enduring affection for the marque in public hearts - the tale has had a happier ending. This is the story of that journey - from desolation to rebirth, just like the phoenix from which the project that created the MGF took its name.
In the context of the turmoil that has beset that industry in the last twenty years or so, the fact that these cars were created in the first place, and then produced in significant numbers, is a remarkable feat, but a key reason is that these MG sports cars were the product of creative, adventurous, determined and enthusiastic people of many disciplines who have relished the challenge of doing the impossible.
This remarkable book embraces the whole story of the creation and development to date of these equally remarkable cars for the first time. It is written by one of the leading world authorities on modern MG history, David Knowles, and is crammed full of material that will be new to even the most dedicated of MGF and MG TF enthusiasts.
Much of the information is newly uncovered - using extensive first-hand interviews - and a great many of the images have never been seen in print before. The book is set to become the definitive history of these cars and is an essential addition to the library of any enthusiast of post-war British sports cars.
