The commercial success will be unquestionable but its design, despite its evolutions, will run up against a glass ceiling and will quickly go out of fashion around the middle of the 50s.

This small car with an English charm can be driven on the road and even take the direction of French or foreign circuits. Its exterior paint will make you look like a real MG driver.
