DR! V/ NG THE .M.G.-A AGAIN—continued from page 828

page

The test car bad centre-lock wire wheels. The braking, aided by Lockheed di-es on the front wheels, is impeccable and is one .of the highlight, of this very taut, controllable sports car.

The M.G.-A 1600 certainly motors. Its engine is astonishingly smooth and all 100 willingto take you well ” into the red.” The indieated maxima in the gears. without exceeding 6,000 r.p.m., -are 27, IA arid 75 m.p.h., respectively, second gear being, perhaps, on the low side. Given a reasonably elear run the speed in top gear just staggers up to the tim and 89-m.p.h. cruising is ehieken-feed to this docile M.G.-A. The ..s, 1-mile is disposed of in under 20 seconds.

The exhaust note is ..pirited without being obtrusive. and for town _driving the M.G. will poodle along at absurdly low speed in top cog. It has very good Lucas headlamps for fast night driving.

Altogether I was captivated, as I always am, hy the sense of ,secnrity and eager performance of the M.G.-A, which is excellent value-for-outlay at £940 7s. 6d. inclusive of p.t. Driving it moderately hard it returned 27 m.p.g. and 100-octane petrol was not required. Traffic negotiation increased this to 24 m.p.g. The absolute range was 265 miles. After 570 miles the oil level had fallen rather ,alarmingly, but a quart of Castrol restored it.

1 could grow old gracefully driving such a car with the hood down in_ a climate of perennial sunshine.A .
