MG Midget MkI

The first version was essentially a slightly more expensive badge-engineered version of the Austin-Healey Sprite MKII and retained the quarter-elliptic sprung rear axle from the original Sprite. The engine was a 948 cc A-Series with twin SU carburettors producing 46 hp (34 kW) at 5500 rpm and 53 lbf·ft (72 Nm) at 3000 rpm. Brakes were 7-inch (178 mm) drums all round.

The doors had no external handles or locks and the windows were sliding Perspex side-screens.

Production was 16. 80 of the small-engined version.

A car with the 948 cc engine was tested by the British magazine The Motor in 1962 and had a top speed of 87. 9 mph (141. 5 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 18. 3 seconds. A fuel consumption of 40. 2 miles per imperial gallon (7. 03 L/100 km; 33. 5 mpg-US) was recorded. The test car cost £689 including taxes on the UK market. '
