  • MGA in very good condition with sparkling red paintwork
  • Runs and drives perfectly
  • Technical inspection (APK) valid until May 2026
  • Fully original Mk1 1600 version
  • Very good roadholding thanks to a complete overhaul of the suspension
  • Restored around ten years ago

The plus

The MGA represented a radical departure from what had gone before, so much so that it merited a completely new model name. Elegant and aerodynamic, it was a huge success and remains at the heart of the classic car scene.
The car evolved over its lifetime, moving in 1958 to a larger, more powerful engine and an optimised braking system.
This latest 1600 Mk1 version is a real treat for enthusiasts. Fully factory specification and featuring a high level of restoration in its classic red colour, the vehicle is in excellent condition. It comes with its technical inspection and the driving feel is simply perfect thanks to an overhaul of the suspension and front axle. All in all, a car that's ready for summer escapades.
