The T Series MGs, starting with the TA introduced in 1936, represents the absolute archetype of the British sports car. These cars provide the authentic experience of sports car driving: the snug two-seater cockpit, quick steering, firm suspension, flat cornering, snappy gearchange and lively engine. Then there are the looks: the long bonnet, swept wings, cutaway doors, slab tank and rear-mounted spare wheel established a unique style. In addition, the T Series MGs opened the door for the British sports car's conquest of the U.S. market.
