MG’s most popular model successfully captured the fun, sporting appeal of Aston,and managed to do so at a much more affordable price. Sure, the MGB is not quite as refined or luxurious as a DB5, but that’s not the point. The appeal of this car is the ability to blast down a windy country road, roof down in the sunshine, without a care for any kinda of creature comfort. Why on earth would you even consider a stereo when you can enjoy the beautiful rasp of the MG’s unmistakable exhaust note? It’s little wonder that the MGB, being Britain’s best ever selling sports car, is now hailed as a fantastic entry level classic car. So how does it fare on today’s roads? World of Motoring has put a 1966 MGB Roadster to the test. Styling The MGB is sleekly proportioned, and perhaps one of the first things you’ll notice about it (particularly on roadsters) is how low to the ground the body sits.
