The original MGA’s body, which had been modeled on a one-off car specifically built for the 1951 24 Hours of Le Mans, represented such a seismic visual shift compared to its T-type predecessors that, when the Mk II arrived, it didn’t include many aesthetic alterations. The modern, aerodynamic shape, featuring a distinctive low bonnet line allowed by its BMC B-Series engine and smooth, handle-less doors remained almost untouched. In fact, the only significant changes included a new grille sporting inset vertical slats and a taillight cluster borrowed from a Mini. Where the MG MGA Mk II really differed from its big brother was under the hood, where its upgraded 1.6-liter straight-four engine produced 93 bhp -- a 25-bhp improvement on the original MGA -- helping take it to a maximum speed well in excess of 100 mph.
