JUST RELEASED.—This is the new 948-c.c. M.G. Midget, for which 46.4 b.h.p. at 5,500 r.p.m. is claimed. We wonder how it compares for quality, appearance and European price with the Innocenti 950 ? We hear that a new Mk. II Austin Healey Sprite has also been announced, which B.M.C. refer to as ” the safest sports car in the world.” They claim for it “90 m.p.h. With ease and 0-60 m.p.h. in 17.4 seconds” but the first independent road-test report we read quotes a top speed of S5i m.p.h. and 0-60 in 19.8 seconds. We Wouldn’t know—MOTOR SPORT wasn’t invited to
the party !
