The MGA is a sports car that was produced by MG from 1955 to 1962. The MGA replaced the MG TF and represented a complete styling break from MG's earlier sports cars. Announced on 26 September ...

Though it caused some controversy upon its release it replaced the previous swoopy shapes for a much squarer look the TR4’s looks have aged very gracefully, ...

  • “Aimed at the sports car purist,” as Honda put it, the S2000 lasted from 2000–09 in two distinct series and gained a loyal following from tuners and track day/autocross addicts to casual enthusiasts. Since the S2000 bowed out a full decade ago, though, nobody (especially Honda) has built quite the same kind of car—at least not with the same level of driving experience, combined with everyday usability in that mid-range price point. The car pretty much perfected the modern roadster, distilling ...

The family resemblance to the Spitfire Mk II was strong, the longer 6-cylinder engine necessitated a new bonnet top with a power bulge and the doors were provided with opening quarter light windows and squared-off ...
